If you haven’t participated in Shop Hop before, you’ve missed out on a lot of fun. Each shop is unique, offering something that you won’t find in the others. Widen your horizons this year. As quilters, we love visiting different shops!
This year we will have 7 shops participating: Sunday Best Quiltworks in Ellerslie, Sew Much Fun in Columbus, A Scarlet Thread in McDonough, Hometown Quilts in Hogansville, Birdhouse Quilts in Byron, Couture Sewing Center in Macon, and Magical Stitches in Macon.
Our dates this year are Friday Feb. 14th thru Monday Feb. 17th. As usual, the shops will be open from 9:30am-6pm on Friday, Saturday, and Monday. On Sunday the shops will be open 1:00pm-4:00 pm.
Let me explain how it works: After a color palate is chosen, each shop is assigned two blocks with specific colors. We exchange our colors with each other, so that each shop will have the same focus colors in their blocks. Then each shop designs a quilt using these same colors. However, the design, background, sashing and borders for each quilt will be very different.
Each shop will have kits prepared for their 2 blocks. They include only the pattern and the focus colors. The customer can choose any background she or he prefers. Each shop will also offer kits for their version of the SHOP HOP QUILT.
All of the shops are busy trying to get their quilts made but we will all have our quilts ready before Valentine’s Day. We will post a picture of our quilt as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you!
