The shop hop is half way over. Have you had a chance to take advantage of the savings yet? If not, you’d better get to hoppin’ on in to the shops before you miss out all together. It might be a good long while before you’ll be able to save like this again.
From what I’ve been told, several who have visited the shops are already looking forward to next year. Kat’s had a great idea that involves food…I thought that might get your attention. I think it’s an excellent idea, and we have almost a whole year to work on making it happen for you. There’s also the possibility of an exclusive quilt pattern designed just for our hop next year. Is that something you’d be interested in? Let us know if it is or isn’t. You can also let us know of any other ideas you might have. We aim to please!
We’ve drawn another name and are giving away another great quilt book. The book this time is Quilts by the Calendar which contains 12 outstanding quilts, one for each month of the year. These are some of the best designs from Fons & Porter’s For the Love of Quilting magazine. There are two basket quilts in here and you know how much I love basket quilts. There’s also a woven heart quilt that uses an interesting weaving technique that would be a lovely gift for someone special come February. Another personal favorite is the maple leaf block. There’s a quilt that uses this block that would be perfect for next fall. These are just a few of the great quilts that our winner, Judy Williams of Rogersville, AL, will be able to make with her new book. Congratulations Judy!
Maybe I need to insist on each winner making one quilt from the book they’ve won. That way we could have a great show-n-tell time during the shop hop next year. Yeah…I like that idea. I like that idea a lot!
