After The Hop! Friday, March 1, 2013

I've had a fun day running around San Diego country during the first day of the Cruisin' Quilters Shop Hop.  I visited five different shops.  The shops were Starry Night Hollow, Quilt in a Day, Fat Quarters Quilt Shop, Grand Country Quilters, and Crazy 9 Patch.  I was even a winner at Quilt in a Day; lucky #26 got me the pattern in the top left.  The theme of this years run "Just Deserts!  Each shop featured a deserts pattern and a recipe to compliment it.  Grand Country Quilters is a new shop that I'd not been to previously.  Here's what I brought home...

Five FQs from Fat Quarters Quilt Shop and Grand Country Quilters.  The to add to my Seven Sisters Simplified project that I started at Road to California Quilt Show workshop in January.

To finish what I need for the back of my #13 UFO Challenge, yardage (on the far right) from Quilt in a Day.

Koda's Keeper
From Crazy 9 Patch the yardage at the top right for the remaining portions of the outer border.  I had thought to get a solid but this small dot is a very good match.  I will need to add an inner border to set it apart from some of the beiges.  I was nudged to buying a brown, but I knew my stash would have something   that I could use. 

My last quilty news to share is #1 UFO for March.  Marti from 52 Quilts pulled this months project today.  Mine is already cut and ready to sew.  I'll be eager to get this one going.  Check out my 2013 UFO list on the side bar for more information on Khambray.
Come back and visit soon to see my progress on all these projects.  Happy Sewing!

You showed great restraint if that is all you brought home from 5 shops! : )
I have to set limits on what I can buy when I go on hops, so I guess I wouldn't have done much more damage.

I too think you did a great job only purchasing a few fabrics.(pat on the back). Your lucky #26, got you a free pattern, did you get and good Deserts? If these numbers get any darker in the proving I am not a robot. I will have to have a flashlight to read them. lol
