Shop Hop by the Bay 2008

Spent Friday and Saturday going to 15 stores and the quilt museum, which included 2 stores not in the Shop Hop. I got several things, including:
Time Out Quilts – Atkinson Designs, where I hope to make String of Lights, using the almost white batik from Always Quilting and batiks from stash and Lily pads using Blank fabric from Gold Country Retreat
Teapots 2 to appliqué – Kay McKenzie (signed) at Round Robin Quilts - using Blue and white fat quarters from Always Quilting, & blue & white border fabric, background unknown, perhaps light gold or very light blue pseudo solid It’s Hip to be Square (HST and squares) – Debbie Caffrey (Back Porch Fabrics) - making Beary Patches (Bear’s Paw variation) using Periwinkle, purple, blue and off-white fat quarters from Back Porch, along with setting fabrics and a few more fat quarters from Fabrics n Fun (now Sewing Machine Center)
Quilts for Rosie – Carolyn Cullinan McCormick - using red, blue, and gold 30s fabrics and white (got 25 fat quarters from Golden State)Put Rosie Panel on the back, and Rosies in the cornerstones. Drafted the blocks into EQ today to make it easier to print the paper piecing foundations.
Now I have the makings for a charm bracelet, just need to get out the jewelry pliers. Each store and the museum gave out charms, and the last shop you went to gave you the chain bracelet. It was a lot of fun driving around with my friends, and we were all exhausted when the end of Saturday came.
