Shop Profile: Daydreams Quilt N Sew

This year, we’ve added two new shops to the Shop Hop lineup! Having two of our past shops close, we are pretty excited about this. Today we’d like to introduce you to Daydreams Quilt N Sew in Idaho Falls owned by Annalee Leonard. Here she is to tell you all about herself and her shop!


I have always loved sewing.  I got my 1st sewing machine when I was 8.  It was the cutest little Holly Hobby sewing machine out on the market.  I got it for Christmas.  Much to my dismay it didn’t work.  I was so very sad.  My mom decided to let me use her sewing machine.  I started sewing straight lines on paper.  Then I sewed lines on an old pant leg that my mom had cut off a pair of holey jeans. Then she gave me a box of scraps to make things with.  I would make my dolls clothes and bags to put stuff in etc.  I was in heaven. That is where my sewing adventure began. daydreams3

Shop Profile: My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe


Hello Fellow Shop Hoppers!

My name is Kris and I am the lucky owner of a brand-new quilt shop located in Logan, Utah.  In June we will be celebrating our 1st birthday! Everyone at our shop is very excited to meet you at the “On the Trail” Shop Hop. Here are a few photos of what I call my “2nd home!” ha, ha

We like to say that, “The Road to a Quilt Shop is Never Long.” I’m sure each one of you would agree that traveling the shop hop is one of the most fun experiences a quilter can have! I promise we’ll make it worth your while to come to Logan!

We carry a good mix of both modern and traditional fabrics from designers and companies such as French General, Joel Dewberry, Three Sisters, Joanna Figaroua, Amy Butler, Sandi Hendersen, Lori Holt, Riley Blake, Nancy Halvorson, Ty Pennington, Michael Miller, Bonnie & Camille, Kansas Troubles, Basic Grey, Jo Morton, Anna Griffin and many, many more! We’re also looking forward here shortly to expanding our offerings to batiks!

One of the reasons why moms and grandmas enjoy shopping here is because of our children’s corner! And yes, that is a REAL tree! (Covered with fabric of course!) Now you can shop in peace knowing that the lil’ ones are having a lot of fun themselves!

And finally, here’s one more pic to maybe peek your interest! We have something very special about to take place just right before you come, so you’ll be some of the first to see what it is!

I hope this helps give you a better idea of what our shop is all about! We are so excited to be in it this year with so many incredible shops to see! We hope you’ll come see us and our friends at Stylish Fabrics here in Logan, Utah! It will be a beautiful drive this time of year!
