Debbie Olive, one of the owners of Quilt Lovers' Hangout in North Fort Myers, Florida, lived a few years in Barbados and it shows in the shop inventory, which includes floral, Western, and animal-theme art quilts from Bigfork Bay Co.
After two years in business, the quilt shop expanded into a larger building. In doing so co-owners Gayle Cowdin and Debbie Olive were able to triple the amount of fabric they carry, which meant they could appeal to an even wider audience. They now offer batiks, brights, homespuns, Civil War, reproduction, and hand-dyed wool (a rarity in sunny Florida).
Quilt tester Laura Boehnke made A New Spin pretty in pink. To alter the design slightly, she chose a different print for the small triangles and center square in each of four blocks. Her fabrics are from the Whirlwind Romance collection by Jenni Calo for Connecting Threads.
