Shop Hop Marathon

Hi all,
For the past two days, I've been on the roads of Western PA visiting 11 quilt shops - up, in only two days.  My friend's new car has a LOT more miles on it now, and she has had lots of practice using her new GPS, too!  Happy to report that her new car is comfy and the a/c works great as temp both days was in the mid-90's!

This morning I poured out all my purchases and sorted into tools, patterns, small fabric precuts and fabric yardage.  I think there's enough here to keep me occupied well into next year.  I will not publish any additional incriminating evidence. ;-)

This afternoon, I'm going to The Quilting Grotto (my basement sewing & craft room) and quilt on a bunch of those Quilts 4 Kids quilts - and maybe play with my die cutter and lay out a journal page (or two) for June.

Watch for more pics as soon as those quilts are done - the tops are beautiful!  All from the same fabrics.


  1. I saw you briefly Wen at The quilting bee-you were coming in I was stuck in the other room-wow a lot a people there! We finished last night. Too much fun if that's even possible. Enjoy!

  2. Do you have the pattern for the quilts for kids quilts? I have a lot of fabric and I need to use some up. Great cause.
    I love shop hops. Glad you had fun!


Love to hear from friends, quilters, fiber folk, and family members.
Leave a note and say hello!
