It actually reminds me of when I was in Scotland, driving the perimeter of the furthest northern island of Skye, so remote that every few miles, you'd see a house
or a castle
or a sheep
or a quilt shop . . . . . . . . . . . . . .WHAT?
So last week in Mexico City, while I had my nose to the ground, taking these pictures for free motion quilting ideas, like this
and this (see blog post)
all of a sudden when I looked up, I saw this Quilting Studio
yip, in the middle of this ancient, magical village, San Angel (in a suburb of Mexico City) . . .
I love the Mexican influence in this quilt shop
The owner, Silvia, gives daily classes and speaks English.
She says that the quilting industry is exploding there in Mexico City just like it is here in the states . . . aren't her quilts beautiful?
she is a modern quilter at heart, look what's on her design wall
(and that's what I bought, of course)
Juarez No. 2, San Angel in Mexico City.
Spend the afternoon in this magical old neighborhood.
