CT Quilt Works ..... In Mystic USA

A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars!

We are loving our holiday and just wanted to let you know that today I am going to Mystic which is just down the road from Stonnington where we are staying.  I am very excited as they advertise this....

An ever changing stock of New and New to you fabrics!  ... That says VINTAGE TO ME!!

Mystic is a beautiful town anyway and is by the beautiful River Mystic in Connecticut.  There is a new village and a Old type village which we will visit as well all wrapped up with a fabric shop...

The picture on the left is on their page and looks vintage enough for me to go and investigate!  I will let you know how it goes.... I did do a little research before coming and got in contact with these lovely people who indeed say that there is vintage fabric here, so fingers crossed it is pre 1950 which is what I love to work with.  I will be taking photos with their permission and when I get home I will do a blog about it and the fabrics that were there for sale.

I thought you may also like to see Mystic and the River .... have a little look at this beautiful photo of where we are heading to today.

Isn't it glorious and I have to say a walk along here is beautiful.  There is also the Mystic Pizza house ( the film with Julia Roberts) and a stunning old world village as well.

So I am hoping for some wonderful fabrics today to stash in my suitcase ... we shall see.  Whatever you are doing have a great day and of course Happy Stitching! and yes the weather is amazing look at the sky! Bliss!
