Owner Shelley Robson says the quilt shop’s customers enjoy coming to a store that’s bright and cheerful, so she showcases samples that explode with color.
The Quilted Forest prides itself on finding projects for sewers of all skill levels.
The color wall has 40 feet of ideas on display from floor to ceiling, accompanied by a parade of quilted samples.
Dan and Shelley Robson create unique displays, such as a popcorn machine featuring fat quarters.
Shelley Robson, co-owner of The Quilted Forest, designed Wave Review for Quilt Sampler® Fall/Winter 2012 magazine.
