McCall, Idaho Quilting

The mountain town I went to with my sister had 2 quilt shops! On the off season the population is quite small, so I was surprised. 



 Huckleberry patches was a woolly wonder! Who doesn't recognize this Sue Spargo pattern? It was obvious they were fans!





  Look at that BOM using French General fabric! Wow! I thought it was a cheater panel- it isn't!
 This quilty looking iron grate surrounded the trees downtown. Any quilter would be able to spot that pattern! (my sister didn't)

I was hoping to have some more quilty pleasures at Grannys Attic. 
But apparently they are doing well enough to close up shop! Maybe next time. 

Here's my instagram feed for the week!

Happy Monday!

  1. I have been to McCall, but we spent all of our time getting ice cream and walking along the water front. After the fact I learned they had quilt shops. Wish I had planned better. Looks like the one you did get to visit was worth a peek.

  2. Sad when the shops are closed. Quilt Shows are lucky that the Shops will travel. I got both of the shops there for my Row by Row. I didn't use them in my Quilt though. You had a Fun weekend. The road to get there is sure wind-y.

  7. I love visiting places with you. It's always fun. Huckleberry Patches looks full of fun stuff. There is so much work on the bird quilt! Amazing! And the skeleton sewing outside, tickled me silly. Maybe next time we can visit Granny's Attic together? Thanks for sharing. ;^)

  16. I love McCall and Huckleberry's is awesome! I bought my first wool kit there years ago! There are so many great shops in Idaho! The new Instagram algorithm stinks...I can see from your "weekly" instagram picture, that I haven't seen most of those! :(

  18. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.
