A couple of weeks ago, I decided to
 go on my own motorcycle adventure.
I did my own quilt shop hop.

The first place I went is in Rome City, Indiana.
The shop is called Caroline's Cottage Cottons.
Her shop is located at
195 Weston Street, Rome City, Indiana 46784
I met the owner last year at a quilt show 
and I fell in love with the items she had.
Her shop is a ranch house that has been
converted to a quilt shop.
Every room was filled with so much 
that I had to use self control because
I knew I did not have the room to
buy everything I wanted on my bike.

 My form of GPS to get to the quilt shop.

Fabric everywhere you turn.
I was in heaven 

Caroline and her employee.  
Two lovely ladies.

After I was done shopping, I decided I'm this close to Michigan
why not ride to Michigan.
So off I went to Sturgis, Michigan.
I was pretty proud of myself.

 As I started my way home, I saw a sign
that showed Shipshewana was a few
miles from where I was.
Shipshewana is an Amish town.
What was I supposed to do?
I rode and stopped at one of the quilt shops.

 This is a quilt made of very small squares.
It was absolutely beautiful.
I cannot imagine the many hours it took to make this.
Below is the letter that describes the construction of this quilt.

 I found my friend's quilt book.
American Homestead quilts.

These four patterns I bought at Caroline's Cottage Cottons.
No fabric was bought.

This pattern I bought I Lolly's in Shipshewana.
No fabric was bought.

 At the end of the day, I had ridden over 300 miles.
I "conquered" twisty roads at a decent speed.
I had a wonderful time riding
and was pleased with myself.
