Quilt Shop Hop

Last Thursday I spent a pleasant morning with a couple of friends visiting two of the quilt shops participating in The Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop – Quilts & Fixins and A Scarlet Thread.


I love to see all the bolts of colorful fabrics and all the wonderful patterns for quilts, clothing, tote bags, etc. 


It’s strange that there always seems to be an abundance of coffee theme fabrics, but few with a tea theme. 


The overall theme of the Shop Hop this year was A Day At The Fair.  Quilts & Fixins shop theme was Dog Show.  This cute quilt with the little Scottie dogs reminded me of my Mom.  When I was little and would ask her to draw a doggie, she’d always draw a Scottie.



A Scarlet Thread had the shop theme Midway Games.


The selection in the Bundle Mania was great.  It is really nice to buy a bundle of fabrics that all co-ordinate in color and pattern.


There were so many tempting patterns that I’d enjoy making for my little granddaughter.


This alphabet quilt was really cute.


Visiting these shops certainly makes me want to dust off my sewing machine and get busy. 


How about you – do you have any special sewing projects in the works this Spring?


This cheerful red teacup fabric was added to my stash.

Hope to have my grandbabies quilt top done this week, then off to the quilter to be quilted. Love visiting quilt shops and shows, but hadn't made a quilt in a very long time. Enjoying the adventure.
