This past Saturday, my quilting guild traveled to Lunn Fabrics located in Lancaster, Ohio. What a feast for the eyes! Let’s start with the outside first. This shop is located in a large, old brick house and is surrounded by a garden of spring splendor with interesting lawn ornaments.
The walkway into the shop hosts a collection of multi-colored bowling balls! Unique and clever…at first I thought they were gazing balls, talk about re-purposing! This set the stage for the next surprise.
Lunn’s has an incredible selection of batiks and hand-dyed fabrics, I didn’t know where to look first!
There are lots of “one of a kind” fabrics…if you see something you like, it’s pretty much buy now or regret later!
I kept coming back to the fabric below, the colors were bold and striking. Who can resist a good leaf pattern?
Inspiration was everywhere! Why not add some beading and buttons to your quilt? They carry a nice supply of both in the store.
The quilt below was truly a work of art!
The green quilt below was also a show stopper.
Want to try your hand at making batik fabric? Batik stamps are available for purchase!
…and “how much did I spend?” you ask! A grand total of $1.50!
I admit it, I froze…I didn’t have a plan! I’ll be driving back to Lunn’s but next time, I’ll have a plan for sure!
