    Is the store open to everyone or only dealers?

I'll be controlling myself though, and buying only material and thread only enough for my first quilt. I've decided a 9 patch with borders in a twin size would be a good starting point. It shall be a user quilt, not one to set folded and unused. When someone is in the recliner dozing, it shall cover them fully. Now at 6 feet 4 inches tall and 300 plus pounds, it takes more than a lap quilt to cover me if I am the one dozing. None of this "choose your arms or feet to keep warm because you can't have both" stuff for me. SO excited folks. Don
    I bought a couple pieces from them last summer at the Owensboro quilt show. Great selection even in the small space allotted to them.

    Let's see, today is Nov. 14th....you will have done your shopping at Whittle's. How did you make out and were you able to limit yourself to just the fabrics and thread for your project? If you did, you are awesome. Can't wait to see the pics of your first quilt! Have oodles of fun!
