Cutest Little Shop in Greenback, TN!

TN_Apr2014 234
Saturday, after our workshop was over, we headed over to Mountain Creek Quilts in Greenback, TN owned by Terri Ayers!

((Terri is the second from the left in the flowered blouse))

What a SWEET SWEET shop!  It might look small from the outside, but prepare to spend HOURS here!

Her displays are fabulous, and her fabric selection can’t be beat.  Sometimes less definitely IS more ----

She graciously allowed me to take photos and I want to share them with you – and if you ever get close to Greenback, TN – ((Not THAT far from Knoxville, TN))  Stop in and tell her that Bonnie sent you!

The Barn blocks on the front of the building will let you know you’ve found the right place.

As soon as the door closed behind me I knew this was going to take a while!

Terri specializes in wool projects as well as cotton quilting fabrics, and there are samples everywhere to inspire.  Prepare to find the unordinary at Mountain Creek Quilts.  She is always on the look out for things you can not find anywhere else.  She brings in the work and designs of fabulous designers from far away places.  She is always on the look out for nifty notions and special quilt related items that add to the unique atmosphere of her shop.

You will also find precuts and thread collections as well as fat quarter bundles.

I know you will want to wander through the shop with me, so I have uploaded my photos into a slide show for your browsing pleasure!

Mountain Creek Quilts, Greenback, TN 2014

It's drizzly and rainy this morning in Carrolton, KY.  It's a good thing I got a long walk in last evening, because the next couple of days will be....well...PERFECT for staying in and quilting!

I know all this rain is going to green up all of this Kentucky blue grass, and eventually -- EVENTUALLY --- winter will be OVER, right?

Today is set up day for the Sewing Expo.  Events start this evening with a Sit n Sew from 7-10pm and I can't wait to meet the ladies.

In the mean time, you'll find me in my room doing lots of this:

Last night it was me and flying geese and a couple episodes of Doc Martin on Netflix!  Finally -- MACHINE TIME!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

  1. Isn't that the cutest little place!!! It might be smaller in size, but HUGE in good everything else. Glad you were able to drop in at Terry's. Great sales gals too.

    TODAY IS THE DAY - I am attacking yet another BONNIE CUT box...meaning pieces that need to be cut using your scrap users method. Yu know, more quilts come popping out of these boxes than you might ever think!!! What a time saver, and reminds me of some fabrics I had even forgotten I have!!!!

    So girl, I am with you in spirit!!!

    Have a super KY day!
    Smiles, JulieinTN

  2. I notice that your flying geese are stitched "Paper pieced" method. Will you be adding that to the free patterns? OR will that be in your next book? If not, where do I get the pattern for the strips? Love to see what you are working on.

  4. Looks like a great shop. I hope to visit one day. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh Bonnie, what a fabulous choice of fabrics Terri carries. I would be in heaven in her store. Your photographs made me wish I was inside with my credit card!!! Hope Kentucky goes well and you don't need to get too wet.

  6. Bonnie,
    Will your new book be sold at Paducah? Thanks, Diane

  7. Mt Creek Quilt Shop is a fabulous shop!! I love to shop there. All the ladies who work there are great!

  8. This is for Debra Crumbaker the pattern for paper pieced flying geese is listed under Free Patterns by the name of Geese on a String.
    Don't you just love the way Bonnie shares everything?

  9. Fun post. I love to visit shops "with" you. Fun note- our guild is having "rules for signing up for Bonnie,expect the lines to be long, one workshop each,space is limited". It should make all of us happy that you blog and share so openly! It's what makes you you and makes us want to be part of your sharing. Again thank you. Bobbie
