My family and I are on our yearly vacation to Traverse City. I’ve been coming here since I was a little girl, and I was so incredibly excited that my mother has been super generous by letting us stay here during her timeshare week. We’ve been coming here for the past three years now- it’s become one of both mine and my husband’s favorite weeks of the year.
Well, this year I was intent on going to visit some of the local quilt shops in the area. And today’s visit was to a wonderful little quilt shop called InterQuilten. It’s a play off of the area they are located in- Interlochen, which my husband tells me is German for “between lakes”. Which is exactly where Interlochen is located.
I forgot to snap a picture of the front of the building, but it is a wonderful little building that reminds me of a log cabin in the woods. The shop itself is wonderfully cozy, with a surprisingly large selection of wonderful fabrics. I found myself eying more than one bolt or precut package.

One of my favorite sample quilts I saw, however, was this beautiful yellow, grey, black and white quilt. They had just sold the last kit for the quilt, which was probably just as well or I might not have been able to resist! Here’s a few pictures of some quilts they had on display!
And here is that fantastic yellow/black/grey/white quilt I mentioned above! I just LOVED some of the fabric they used, which was surprising since always before I was never very into that color combination.
In the end, however, I stuck with picking up their row by row invention. I originally wasn’t going to do the row by row this year, but this row by row was so whimsical I had to grab it. So now I have to go back to some of the other stores and grab their row by rows as well. (Which I was planning to stop by and snap some pictures anyways, so it’s a win-win!)
Have a fantastic day! Enjoy your quilting projects!
