Yellow Creek Quilt Designs
One of the vendors I met while I was in Paducah for quilt week was Yellow Creek Quilt Designs. WOW! These ladies are amazing! I first learned about sisters, Vicki Olsen and Jill Shaulis through the Primitive Quilts magazine specifically the Spring 2013 issue. Yellow Creek Quilt brick and motor shop was a former bank turned post office turned quilt shop--looks like a fun place to visit. Hmm, might be a long road trip, they are in IL and me in TN, but oh the fun places I could find in between the two stops
Photos do not do this quilt justice--the hexies are tiny-- 3/8" tiny! Seeing their beautiful star hexie quilt was motivation for me to begin working on mine again.
My hexes are 1" finished--they seem giant sized compared to the 3/8" size. Sewing the hexies is addicting. They make a great portable project to carry in the car and work on during lunch or while waiting for appts.
The Kindred Spirits book is Yellow Creek Designs first published book by Kansas City Star and yes this book was one of my first purchases. They also have some beautiful fabric and are getting ready to release a second book. If you like making miniature quilts, check them out.
