It's so much fun to visit a new quilt shop. Yesterday, my friend Shirley introduced me to a wonderful new one I had been anxious to see. Ye Olde Schoolhouse quilt shop is in historic Cedarburg, Wisconsin, just a little north of Milwaukee. The shop is now on my list of favorite shops.
Earlier this year my husband and I stopped in Cedarburg on the way home from visiting my son at school. We had a great time strolling around the quaint town, checking out the antique shops and restaurants, but I was disappointed to find that this shop was closed on the day we were there. Darn! I thought maybe I'd just park myself outside and wait until they opened but that would have meant sitting outside on the front stoop in the cold for a day or two so I went home and made a mental note to visit again. When I returned yesterday, I was not disappointed. See for yourself -
Ye Olde Schoolhouse was a featured shop last year in the Fall/Winter 2010 Quilt Sampler magazine.
Lots of great books as well as so many patterns for adorable little quilts!

These schoolroom chairs are just too cute!
Laurel and Jeanie, the owner, were so sweet - and friendly and helpful too. Be sure to stop by if you're ever in Wisconsin. You won't be disappointed either.
