Last night I was lucky enough to escape to a shop hop at the fire hall in Denton, Maryland. It was a pretty small town, either that or I only saw one side of it.
There were some of my local shops there:
There were also a few shops that I want to venture to now:
Serendipity had some super cute rolls of fat quarters, one of the lines had blue crabs and starfish ~ Loved It!! They also had some beach bags kits that were really cute, and lots of fun toys – I mean tools.
Shady Lane is a quilting shop owned locally by the Amish in Dover. They had really good prices, and lots of cute fabrics. I will be going there within the next few weeks.
There were also a lot of shops from Maryland that of course I don’t remember their names.
Lots of raffle quilts too, one was a blue and white hand quilted- GORGEOUS! I would’ve entered, but the thought of winning that quilt then having to put it into storage for a few years would just make me cry. I would be petrified if the kids got a stain on it!
The thing that bugs me the most is that I took my camera, and of course didn’t even take it out of my purse- errr. I did take my 2 year old with me, so that will be my excuse.
I did splurge and buy some 30s FQs:
The snowman FQ is the one I got when I paid to get in- free fabric is always great. But, I paid $3 to get in, so what exactly was I buying?? My FQ I think…
I’m collecting them for a quilt I want to make for myself, maybe my husband will be lucky and I might share with him hahaha. I already have some darker colors, reds and greens, and a few yellows. There was this one orange one I wanted, but they didn’t have it in a FQ. Bummed is not the right word.
I got them at a booth with an online shop, quilts123.com. I really wanted to get their FQ pack of the full line they carried with 30s fabric, but I didn’t bring $100 with me (shucks…).
