Innkeeper Joy is making a quilt to adorn the staircase. The fabrics in this “colorwash” heart quilt are used in a way similar to that of an artist using paint on canvas. The fabrics “wash” across the surface of the quilt, blending and bleeding into each other. By varying the lightness and darkness of the fabrics, a beautiful heart centers the quilt. Joy chose to use two-inch squares rather than the strip piece method. It will take more time but a beautiful quilt is a labor of love!
There are great quilt shops in and around the Duluth area to enjoy during your stay. Many offer classes and stock the latest fabrics, patterns, and notions. Check out Kelly J’s Sewing Center & Quilt Shop on 6140 Jean Duluth Road in Duluth. Another one worth the drive to is Hingeley Road Quilt Shop in Floodwood (about an hour from Duluth). They boast 6000+ top quality bolts of fabric. The Quilters Coop on 319 North Central Avenue in Duluth never disappoints!
We hope to see you on your next trip to Duluth.
Joy and Jim Fischer, Innkeepers/Owners
