Today, we visited the last shop on our 2010 Quilt Run treasure hunt. This year, our goal was to complete Region 2 and Region 3. Our last stop to achieve this goal was Luella's Quilt Basket in Redondo Beach.
If I had my choice of places to live it would along the coast. For me it is the smell of the sea, the breezes and the casualness of the residents. Beach people seem happier and healthier.
Our top three shops, for fabric choices, kid friendliness and desire to return to shop in alphabetical order:
Flying Geese Fabric... special treats for the kids, the cutest retro fabrics
Stars and Scraps.... lovely fabrics, nice people, felt so very welcome
Quilters' Garden ... super nice people, water and popcorn
This is our second quilt run and we are already planning for next year's run when our goal will be to visit all the shops in Region 4. We plan to dedicate one full weekend and stay overnight at the half way point.
Our day trip included a side trip to Long Beach to attend Patchwork Long Beach The shop was so completely worth the multiple trips around the Marina to find a parking space. Holly's only wish was to dip her toes in the ocean...mission accomplished.
