Houston Bay Area Quilt Shop Hop!

Yesterday and today was our area Quilt Shop Hop. I went with my quilting buddy, Linda. We had such a great time. I can't take the time to post about everything in one sitting...but here's just a tidbit. I'll post a bit here and there and share with you what I bought.

Let me say this first, there were snacks and water at each shop! So sweet, it kept us going while we were looking toward lunch and held us over until we got home last evening. I am always amazed at the wonderful gifts each shop gives each quilter, until this year.....I won't say which shop gave what, half of them were really great gifts. Here is the picture of my freebies.

The red background fabric is an end of the bolt deal I got. It was just one yard, but I got it 20% off since it was the end of the bolt. It's Shangri la by Moda.

The red and pink kit is for a pincushion. It came with instructions, fabric, ribbon and buttons. Very nice!

The blue kit is for a needle case. On the front of the needle case are little tiny yo yos made to look like a bluebonnet, our state flower.

The red fat quarter is a Reproduction Civil War fabric. It's a Moda fabric.

The green fat eighth is a home spun, which was the only choice they gave...hmmmm, I got the nicest one.

The little yellow heart is a "keychain" which can be used as a template for quilting and/or appliqué. It has the shop's name etc. on it. I don't know that I'll ever use it.....hmmmm.

And lastly, the piece of paper. It's a "pattern" for a stitchery project. hmmmm, that's all I'll say. Interesting, huh? And this shop was in the nicest part of town.

Regardless, I did have a great time and I found everything on my list.....and then some!

Happy Quilting!

Edit: he he he....I just looked at the close up picture and you can plainly see where some of the freebies came from! Oh well, so much for trying to be discreet! LOL
