We left Boston and flew into Kansas City, arriving late afternoon on Wednesday. MSQ is about an hour from the airport. We did a quick tour of the shops before they closed for the day at 5pm. Our plan was to be up and running at 9am on Thursday to spend an entire day visiting all 14 shops.
|A bright mural adorns the side of the sewing center building. A 50's themed quilt retreat was in progress during our visit.|
|This was one of my favorite shops since I'm fond of novelty prints.|
|Vintage machines decorate the window of the Machine Shed.|
|Need a break? Visit Man's Land.|
|Joanne and Sue stopped and rested in the comfy lounge chairs in Man's Land. There's even a pool table in the back.|
|Same side of the street, but photo taken from the opposite end.|
Here is a picture of the other side of the street.
|This is the Main Shop, or as I call it the Welcome Center to Quilter's DisneyLand... The rest of the shops on this side are Missouri Star Mercantile, Florals, and the Sewing Center, where the quilt retreats are held.|
|Another beautiful wall mural.|
|Right next door to the Main Shop is Mama Hawk's Kitchen. On Wednesday, I enjoyed a fabulous brisket sandwich for lunch here. And I also tasted my first red cream soda. Delicious! J.D.'s Burger Dive is adjacent to Mama Hawk's Kitchen.|
|All of us developed an addiction to Mama Hawk's divine cinnamon rolls... I wonder if she does mail order...|
|Here I am with my Brown Bagger quilting buddies enjoying another scrumptious lunch on Thursday at Blue Sage. |

Pugs and kisses,
