Quilt Shop Review – The Quilt Spot, Midland Park, NJ

New Jersey’s annual shop hop started this past Friday and runs through May 1. It includes 9 shops across the state. I don’t think I have time to get to the seven in central to south Jersey but I did visit two on Sunday.  

 Blink and you could miss The Quilt Spot, tucked into a little building opposite a large shopping center. And that would be too bad as it is a cute shop with a delightful owner, Linsee.  

 The shop is small. But that is okay because Linsee has impeccable taste and maximizes the space. She has a good collection of mixers along with solids, denim, the latest prints and lots of pre-cuts. Her taste has a distinctively modern flair, but there is something for traditionalists too. She also has a fair amount of notions and patterns, and a small sale section. The shop recently moved and I think she is still re-building inventory, but there is plenty here to make it worth a visit.  

 The theme of the shop hop this year is Earth Day and each shop is providing a new pattern based on the theme. The Quilt Stop did this great recycled denim quilt. It is very well done and I found it to be quite masculine which is nice.  

 I found some goodies – a ruler for triangles and hexagons, graphite denim to use as a bag lining and two fun prints. I always keep white strips on hand and want to do a dark quilt so I  picked up the black strips too. And a few FQs of course. Just because they were pretty.  

The Quilt Spot is located at 26 Goffle Road in Midland Park, NJ or online at http://www.thequiltspotnj.com. Park in the back and use the back door. 

 I also visited Rock Paper Scissors and picked up the pre-cut treats above. I didn’t take any photos but I will review that shop next time.
