They ask that participants not take any pictures in order to keep it a mystery for everyone until the end of July, so I reluctantly comply with that rule and don't have any quilts to show you.

Some of the shops I travelled to on my own, and some parts of the journey I was able to car pool with some quilting friends.

I am well stocked for the year (well, for years to come actually!)
I've never been on a Shop Hop where you couldn't take a picture of their layout. That would be so hard! Glad you got to all the shops. The Teal is a great addition to spice up those blocks.
I've never done one either - it looks like fun!
I miss doing the shop hops. Not that I need anything that is for sure but just to visit and see what is new and upcoming in the quilt world.
What fun! I've never participated in a shop hop. However this year I attended the One Stop Shop Hop in Kokomo, Ind. They had 30 vendors there from Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. I had a fun time and we didn't need to drive to each store. So, I guess, in a way, I had participated in a shop hop. The teal fabrics will perk up the neutrals. Can't wait to see your quilt! Happy stitching.
That sounds quite fun! Especially the "coming home with lots of new goodies" part :)
I haven't been on a shop hop in years, but it was always fun to get with like minded friends and go do some damage to the pocketbook!
I too went to all 15 shops - some for the second time since I was also collecting Row by Row patterns. I ended my hop in Exeter. They had a very different quilt from all the others. Since my sewing room is overflowing, I only picked up a couple of fat quarters from some shops.
Sounds like a lot of fun. It is amazing how all the finished quilts look so different.
I was only able to get to a few shops last year...I live (lived, they moved to Saint Mary's this month) Kalidoscope, The Marsh Store (just opened again yay!) I enjoyed the hops and the free quilt block is such a great idea. I'm hoping more stores get involve this year
