I had the opportunity to accompany DH on a business trip to Fairbanks, Alaska. What a neat place! But, the best part....the quilt shops in log cabins! I felt really silly in Material Girls oogling the cool "Alaska" quilts, but I did it anyway. It was the experience of what do I look at next, what do I want, oh my! I finally settled on a particular local designer pattern and polar bear fabric. Will I try to go back? Absolutely! The people were welcoming and warm; the scenery amazing. But then, quilters are awesome people!
