EQ Slide Show and More Country Sampler

Have you ever used Electric Quilt's EQ6 Slide Show utility as a way to look through your EQ6 and earlier quilts?  It's fabulous!  I always wished there were some simple way to browse through all of my EQ quilts at one time without opening folder after endless folder.  Lots of good ideas hiding back in there!

Okay, let's whisk back to the Country Sampler.  Sorry for the fuzziness of some of the photos:

A pretty scene, just how we want our homes to look at night...

There's that Brown Egg Farm sampler by Notforgotten Farm that I have wanted to stitch.  Somebody went and stitched it!

Delectable textiles for decorative accents:

Soulful lady...

The bed displays, both full and shortened, just made the shop and gave it such a perfect ambience.  Love the bed curtains and dying for the pillow cover:

Gasp!  What a shelf display!

Whoa, back outside again.  We got to check out some quilts in the classroom area at the back.  Scrumptious.

Whoa, back in the shop.  We were darting back and forth, drunk on Primitive.  You don't lose body parts if you're only drinking Primitive.

Wonderful fabric and enticing displays everywhere, all primitive, all suprem-o.

Ai, there's that great bed again!

Back to the classroom.  We are spinning out of control :-) .  Window display:

Cheater cloth so gorgeously quilted that it is looking very un-cheater:

A bed display in the classroom.  The reverse colorway of the pillow cover on the bed inside.  Swoon and die:

Whoa, spinning around outside again.  I could live here in a heartbeat; it faces Country Sampler!

Country Sampler vegetation and gorgeous stone wall:
Okay, next time on to JJ Stitches in Sun Prairie.

Oh, be still my heart! I had the opportunity to visit Country Sampler and fell in love. I hope to visit again some time.

I know you enjoyed JJ Stitches, too. Another love at first sight visit. LOL

Yep...CS just makes you feel warm and cozy! We must have followed the same shop hop route - we went to JJ's too. We should have done it together!

I'll remember the slideshow feature of EQ, if I end up getting a copy for myself. It sounds like a convenient feature, one that would be easy to overlook.

I don't live that far away from the area you're visiting. A shop hop may have to be in my future plans. Thanks for sharing this wonderful shop.

I thoroughly enjoyed your pictures! Thanks for sharing. I have been to Country Sampler and it's the best quilt shop I have ever been to. Love, LOVE that place!!

If I ever make it to Wisconsin again, I want to visit Country Sampler. I love looking at the pictures on their website. Always several quilts I like. And their displays looks so inviting. It must be so much better to see it all in person.
