Shopping in Branson!

Saturday I went to Quilts and Quilts in Branson.  I think it is the biggest quilt shop I have ever been in!  Here is the link to their website.  http://www.quiltsandquilts.com/  I did not buy much, I got a yard of Rte 66 fabric for my husband's quilt, a small piece of pretty fabric for me and two pairs of scissors.  I'm not sure how well you can see the scissors though.

We went to an Antique store in Historic downtown Branson and for $10 I bought several quilt blocks.  A row of fans, I'm not sure what to do with these though.
There were also several bowties and some of them are a different size.  Maybe I can make a table topper with these.  Would it work to cut the bigger ones down to the same size as the smaller ones?

There were six spool blocks.

Then the miscellaneous blocks:  maple leaf, oak leaf, and two grandmother's flowers blocks.
I wish I had bought the other bag of blocks also!   If you have any suggestions for these blocks, please share!

Cute blocks. How about a sampler type quilt with blocks made up of blocks of the different block types.

When the kids were small we had very little money for vacations but we did have a pop up camper. We're about 4 hrs from Branson so we got season tickets to Silver Dollar City and on Fridays I used to work 1/2 days. My husband would get home and be ready for me to arrive, we'd hop in the truck and drive to Branson and camp. Back then the downtown had not expanded, it was just the older section and we loved going to the five and dime or to get salt water taffy. I have not been to the quilt shop but have heard about it. I really miss going down there so maybe we will try to do it again this year. Your blocks are great! I hope you find some good ideas on how to incorporate them or even just some runners or mug rugs if not quilts.

You can probably cut the bow tie blocks down, but, you can also frame all of your blocks, to bring them up to the same size, and put them all in a quilt. The fans could be in a separate quilt, with wide strips of fabric separating the strips if fans.
