i was itchn' to do some piecing, so since i was all excited about the shop hop quilt, i started it. remember the theme was "The Magic of Childhood" and each shop chose a theme to fit into the main theme. The goal of Shop Hop is to go to all 9 greater Atlanta quilt shops, have your passport stamped, then on to the next one. at each shop they give you the directions for their store's block and the directions to their shop hop quilt. Some give out 'goodie' bags with special treats: candy, fabric, or small quilty notion. When you go to all nine shops, you give your fully stamped passport to the last store to be entered into the drawings. Apparently i didn't win anything, because one of the shops sent out an email with their drawing's winner. *pout* There's always next year. i'll focus on making my quilt *smile*
The first block (L to R) is Little Quilts. their theme was "Under the Big Top".
the next block is from Quilts n Fixins', their theme was "Saturday Morning Cartoons." i actually used the fabric that was in my goodie bag from them. next row , Red Hen Fabric's block, their theme was "Down on the Farm'. lastly, there is Patrick's with "Weekend at Grandma's".
so four blocks down, 8 to go. i'll post my progress.
