My decision was made when a couple of friends were going to a few of the shop hop stores, I didn't have to drive, and I happened to have most of the day off.
So off we went! We managed to get to 4 quilt stores and that was very helpful in my decision making process. I can't show you any photos of the blocks or projects because for some reason unknown to me, many stores asked for no photographs to be taken of the project quilts and all stores stated that there was to be no social media posts.
So this photo is of the yoyos that I made during the drive that may or may not be for one of the blocks! I decided not to collect all the blocks so that I don't feel the pressure of yet another project on the go. But I am going to collect some of the block patterns from selected stores that I will add to the blue project from last year. I will substitute out the patterns I don't want to make and add in some of this year's patterns that I would like to try.
And I found this cute sign in a gift shop!
