    I recently did an outback (Australia) trip. My intention was to pick up a fat quarter from every town we stoped in. However - There was only two quilting shops along the way. So I picked up a jelly roll from the first town (who told me I wouldn't find a quilt shop in Longreach or Birdsville etc) and then I just bought tea towels from every town. I haven't started my quilt yet but I am looking forward to it when I do.

    Great find. Are there several quilt shops there in Amsterdam? Will you make something at the end to commemorate your trip?

    I just wanted to get some authentic Dutch Chintz, I'll decide later what to do with it. I am ever so happy Fien told me about the shop here in Amsterdam. Whatever gets made with this fabric will remind me of the awesome time we had here this visit. We are off to Belgium on Tuesday, maybe have time to scope out another fabric place. We'll see. Before I start on this new fabric I'll have to finish the projects I worked on before we left. Happy days!!

    On our last trip cross country before my DH passed, I took pictures of every place we stopped. Starting with the drawbridge on the Sacramento river just off our driveway. Then got a detour sign, and on to Arizona, another detour sign, etc. Someday it will work up into a really neat quilt. With lots of detour signs along the way
