As you know, I'm in Sacramento for training. I couldn't let a trip to Sac go by without visiting a new quilt shop and, of course, buying fabric. I found Bearpaws and Hollyhocks only about 15 minutes from my hotel. Its in a smaller strip mall on El Camino. Its a great shop with tons of fabric displayed so you can actually see it. I dealt mostly with Elaine, who was a huge help in picking out fabric, and with Lindy, the owner, whose opinion we kept checking. This is the fabric I ended up with--I'll be using it to make the Pioneer Sampler by Quilt-in-a-Day.
