Doesn’t this cute quilt just make you think about a fun summer beach party? Well, I was “sorta” at a beach party this past week. And you could “sorta” be at a beach party this weekend.
The Southern California Quilt Run is having a quilt run Thursday – Sunday. While there are a lot of fun shops, I highly encourage you to visit Luella’s Quilt Basket in Redondo Beach. Great shop, close to the beach (and only minutes from the Los Angeles airport).
Luella Fournell is the owner and she has been in business for 22 years this month! They have an excellent selection of fabrics, with many beautiful quilts on display!
Excellent collection of books, with a great area to relax and check out the books. Definitely one of my favorite places!
And they currently have a special exhibit on display of bags and patterns from Pink Sand Beach
And, this exhibit includes two new designs that were just released at Spring Quilt Market.
Did you know that Nancy Hammond of Sand and Sun Designs and Nancy Green of Pink Sand Beach Designs, both started designing out of Luella’s Quilt Basket and have now gone National? Both are great designers and Luella encouraged them to pursue being professional designers!
This is such a delightful store. Bright, cheerful, friendly staff.
They also have one of the best collection of patterns that I’ve ever seen, and a lovely selection of kits.
There is also a long-arm quilter that works out of Luella’s.
I hope you get a chance to visit Luella’s on the Quilt Run this weekend. But if you live too far away, you may want to plan a vacation to Redondo Beach and visit Luella’s
. Then you’d really have a fun beach party!
