Plump With Fat Quarters

This is just a fraction of the gorgeous quilting supply area of the fabric section in Yoder Department Store in Shipshewana, Indiana. It was busting at the seams with thousands of yards of fabric in luscious colors and patterns. There were fat quarters everywhere.

It makes me want to get rid of necessities like food and clothes to make room for my sewing machine in the truck. My mother's friend Doris (who makes some of the most amazing quilts I've ever seen) would probably go broke if she were in this place.

This is just another reason to love the Amish of Shipshewana. Every time I'm here, I'm struck by the simple lifestyle of the Amish and Mennonite people, and as crazy as it sounds, sometimes I envision a life of quilting and riding around in buggies.

Those bonnets though, are another story.

That Yoder's shop is entirely too enticing. I found their kitchen aisles a bit overwhelming when I was there over Christmas. Fortunately I was able to leave with just a cookie dough scoop and a new spatula :)
