The Quilted Crow, Hobart

The last port of call on the Needlework Cruise was Hobart and we had a wonderful visit to "The Quilted Crow" - the home of Leonie and Deirdre - who were very welcoming as we walked through the doors of this beautiful old church and into a patchworkers heaven ....


The old stone church is absolutely beautiful ...


And the inside did not disappoint us .... I have long admired this shop and was very keen to pay a visit and I have to say it was a highlight of our Cruise .... thank goodness the ship stopped in Hobart !! 


Every way we turned there was an eye-catching display and something that just needed to come home with me !!


Beautiful fabrics and wool felts, lovely kits and patterns ...


And Sylvia and I enjoyed meeting Leonie and Deirdre ...


This is a little dark, but the stained glass windows are gorgeous ...


Beautiful quilts and potted flowers ...


Sylvia in a shopping frenzy ... we admired the beautiful quilt hanging over the railing on the top right of this photo ...


And I would love this to be my ironing corner of the world ... I could look at this gorgeous quilt all day!    


If you are ever in Hobart do pay "The Quilted Crow" a visit and make sure you say hello to Leonie and Deirdre if they are at home ... it is a simply beautiful shop to visit!    And thank you to the ladies for making us feel so welcome and at home!
