Mother's Day Shop Hop quilt in progress

We've sewn six of the blocks and put them together in rows. Now we're auditioning the borders. There's a lot going on here, but it will be a cheerful toddler quilt. You could use just about any border because the quilt is so colorful.

Mother's Day Shop Hop

We're working hard on our Mother's Day Shop Hop project. Here is our block, and we're going to put several together for a baby quilt. It's one of those terrific blocks that make secondary designs when placed side by side.

Join us for the Mother's Day Shop Hop, Friday, April 30 to Saturday, May 8! All shops will be open Monday-Saturday 10a-5p & both Fridays until 7p. Additional hours are found on the passport under each store's listing. Passports are $5 from April 1-29, and $6 during the Shop Hop.
