3 Dudes Quilting, Phoenix, AZ
Our last store in the Phoenix area was 3 Dudes Quilting, and here is their website
www.3dudesquilting.com. It was very busy with many customers and a class in session. They have a huge selection of fabric and a storefront of windows that on a sunny day would have been lovely but we enjoyed rain for our visit. The walls are covered with many finished items to tempt you.
This is the only shop we visited that offered some items from a local designer (that we noticed). We snapped up two pre-quilted coloring panels by Giggling Gecko Designs in Mesa, AZ. One is a Cement Truck and the other a Dump Truck, and look how cute they are for a certain little two-year-old named Franklin. After they are colored they can be framed in an 8×10 frame, included in a quilt or made into wall hangings like pictured here.
The other fun item we found is the Connector Playmat called At The Harbor by Northcott Fabrics with more information found here: (http://www.northcott.net/product-detail.aspx?colid=959&colorid=1528%20&fbid=99)
I found the idea of this playmat to be fun, and Northcott Fabrics has a few other varieties as well. I’ll share more information about this project as it comes to fruition in a later post. I would have had fun as a child driving my ‘car’ around town, stopping at the beach and visiting the shops found on this playmat. How about you?
