2013 Quilter’s Quest–November 8-17–Day #2

Saturday, November 9, 2013 – The Second Day of the Quest!

I cannot believe it. For the first time, we visited 5 Quilt Shops in one day.  That is half of the participating Quilt Shops!

We’re getting older, and this experience is for fun and for spending some quality “car-time” with one another; so we decided not to push.  We have 5 more shops to visit, but there are quite a few miles involved.   Today we chose to visit the shop in Annapolis, and the two shops around the Baltimore Beltway, saving the last two for Sunday.

We heard that Navy was playing a football game at home and the Quilt Shop in Annapolis isn’t far from the stadium – Easy decision: Start with Cottonseed Glory and get out of Annapolis Before the game!

Walking into the store from the parking lot we were greeted and assured a bus wasn’t scheduled until 11:30 AM, so we could take our time browsing.  I always like looking at their selection of Christmas and Youth/Novelty Fabrics.  I know I can find something I like.

We ran into some people we had seen at Capital Quilts the night before and another carload that we later saw at the next shop. That makes it fun!

Leaving Annapolis behind, we hit the road again.

They had some computer glitches the first day – am hoping all is better for them now.

We were making good time and started out to the last shop we would visit on our 2nd Day of Questing.

Destination:  Bear’s Paw Fabrics in Towson, MD.

It’s almost lunchtime when we leave Bear’s Paw, so, while we were ‘in the neighborhood’ (figuratively speaking) we head out to The Canopy – BBQ.  We picked up carry out – enough for lunch, dinner and then some.

Great way to finish our 2nd day of the Quilter’s Quest.  On Sunday, the stores do not open until noon, so we’ll head out and visit the last two stores – Great Falls, VA & La Plata, MD.
