The Quilting Corner in Tilton, New Hampshire

Two years ago, Sue, Elizabeth and Barbara went to this shop on one of their Row By Row road trips. We blogged about it here
This year, after picking up her sister Becky at the airport in Manchester, Elizabeth convinced her to delay getting to the lake a few more minutes to make a stop in Tilton, New Hampshire at The Quilting Corner.  This shop is in a renovated textile mill of which there are so many sprinkled along the rivers in New England. 

At one time they certainly fueled the economy of these states and led to the acceptance of women working outside the home.  This particular mill made the first continuous woven drive belt and employed many women workers.
This shop has many samples and is clear and uncluttered with plenty of fabric and notion choices for any quilter.  She also offers classes in June and August but not in July.  Perhaps one year, we can take a class?
Their row includes three little turtles crawling through the grass taking their “home sweet home” along with them.  The kit comes with the turtle and grass shapes die cut and the fusible web already attached.  This row should go together quickly.
