After resting for a few days with friends in Maryland I visited my first quilt shop which was Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg. I needed to buy some Fray Check to finish the wall hanging and they were so friendly and helpful.
Susan kindly gave me a Capital Quilts pin as it was my first visit and I was all the way from Australia. She then introduced me to Hilary, another lady who worked there and who had migrated to the States from Australia many years ago.
It’s a lovely shop and well worth the visit if you’re ever in Gaithersburg. They have a great selection of fabrics and notions, not to mention sewing machines. Here are some photos I took.
They do have a website and so you can check them out online if you’re interested. The address is: http://www.capitalquilts.com/
PS Thank you all for all your comments about the rulers and the wedding posts. I did read them all and was interested to hear your views. Thanks also for your kind comments about the wall hanging.
