Shop Hop starts on Monday!

Next Monday, February 21st, is day one of the Tidewater area shop hop!  There are five shops participating in our local area, and what prizes we have!

  • Grand prize is a $500 quilter’s shopping spree!
  • Each shop will also be giving away a quilter’s goody basket valued at $150
  • Over 100 prizes in all given away!

In case that is not enough…each shop will have a free pattern for our shop hop quilt…This year each shop will also be selling block kits for $7 each!

Here is our version of this years shop hop quilt.  I can’t wait to see what it looks like after Rose works her magic quilting on it!  I’ll bet it is full of feathers…We will also be selling a few kits for the complete quilt.   (Finished size is about…65″ square or so…)

Our block is the one in the center.  How perfect, you know how we like to be right in the middle of things! (Or is that just me…)

Here is our block, set on point, quilted and bound for a nice little table topper.  Directions for this finishing design are included in our block kits.

  1. I have done this shop hop in the past and have actually won a prize. It was great fun. Trying to figure out if I have time to do it this year. Hope everyone who participates has a good time.

    • Come on Charlotte! You have time. You know that once it is over you will be sorry you missed it!

  2. Some feathers…some not…guess you’ll have to wait and see!

    • Hey Rose, can’t wait to see it! If you want to send me a picture after it is quilted I will post it. Thanks!
