New Quilt Shop in Town...

Let me introduce you to the new quilt shop in town.... Black Widow Weavers. My youngest daughter had a school project last month where she had to create a store with a spooky twist to it. She decided upon a quilt store. And yes, I am one of "those" parents who help(and I really enjoy it) their kids with big school projects.
We built the building from scratch(luckily I have a scroll saw), even cut the shingles on the roof, though we did buy the door and the windows.

We put plexi glass on the top so that middle schooler fingers wouldn't mess with the contents. And I must say, it was easy to cut and really worked out well.

We rolled fabric on cardboard for the bolts of material on the homemade shelves, made a cutting table in the middle, a quilt frame in the corner, and the ironing board was a goodwill find.
The torn wall paper is actually flocked scrapbook paper and the little quilts around the ceiling were printed from actual quilts we found on line.

We had so much fun working on this that we look forward to making a real doll house from scratch in the near future.

Have a great day,



  1. Wow, that is awesome!!!!
