Guess where I was this past weekend?  On Friday I was in Lincoln, Nebraska on my first quilt museum tour.  I went behind the scenes at the International Quilt study Center & Museum.  It was absolutely amazing and I could have easily spent days just looking at the quilts they have in storage.  Oh how I wanted to open each box!

The exhibit on display was called “Log Cabin’s and Kit Quilts”.  This was my favorite Log Cabin ever!

From Lincoln I drove to Gretna, Nebraska for a fun retreat at the Minglewood Lodge!   The Minglewood Lodge is owned by Debbie Roberts who also owns The Quilted Moose quilt shop.  It’s the perfect combination for quilters!  Just think, you can sew all weekend and when you need a break you just drive a few miles to Debbie’s wonderful store.  It just doesn’t get any better than that.  Here’s some good news if you happen to be one of those people still trying to locate some Lily & Will fabric.  Debbie actually has some left!

Hope you all had a good weekend too!
