I have read with interest the comments about Likes/Dislikes in Quilt stores and one of the 'likes' was lots of samples around the store.
So I am curious as to what samples other quilters like to see in quilt stores, what your LQS has on show, do they change their samples regularly, does the LQS sell the 'samples' after the fabric range is gone, etc
My LQS has a nice selection of completed quilts an some bags but they don't change for maybe months on end. I know it is hard for a store to keep up with samples, but do you want to see large completed quilts, or does your LQS just have some quilt tops sewn so you can see the fabrics / pattern.
I have heard comments from quilters that they really like the quilt / pattern shown in a LQS but wouldn't buy it because they could never do the 'beautiful quilting' as shown. Are the 'samples' shown in your LQS way out of your skill level and does this tend to put you off buying that fabric / pattern?
