This past Saturday a friend and I did the Quilters' Quest Shop Hop -Maryland and Northern Virginia. We were supposed to start last Saturday but I got in late Friday night from my trip. So we decided to just hit as many as we could this past Saturday. we started out at 815 am
So at each shop you had to find a certain item and then you were given a prize, it was a magnet. you can see them in all the pics. each shop had their own pattern that you also received.First stop Bear's Paw Fabrics, this is what I bought.
then off to Patches Quilting and Sewing
then Capital Quilts, I purchased a button that says "starched into submission" there were ladies there from the local guild selling raffles, of course I bought tickets. This shop had a lot of Aboriginal material and quilts on display. BEAUTIFUL I didn't think to ask if I could take pics.
So now it's about 2 o'clock we are making good time, we thought we would only get in these three, but mapping on google we could stop at the one I really wanted to go to.
Jinny Beyer yes!
love her border fabric, I contained myself and just bought a little, I could have gone overboard in here.
so much eye candy. and we were greeted by her. I am such a @#$#ass I didn't think to get a pic with her either! that's ok I'll go back.
So we stopped for a quick lunch and off to yet another shop.
Cottonseed Crabby Quilter
I was still thinking about that Aboriginal fabric, they had a small sampling. so I picked up a fat quarter (the one on right) it has crabs on it. we ran into the bus group at this store, and they must of cleaned up.
This was a fun adventure and will do it again next year. In total we spent about 10 hours driving and shopping.
Thanks for stopping by, anna
