Sunday Stash: Tri-state Shop Hop

Look! Two posts in one day! But only because the Delaware tutorial from this morning should have been up on Friday.

I’m visiting my parents, and my mom, who is also a quilter, told me there is a little shop hop happening in her area. Well, what a great what to spend some quality time with my mother. Friday, while hubby watched the girls, we went to shops in Galena IL, Plattville WI and Dubuque IA. Saturday, we brought along my three girls and travelled through farm country Iowa to Bellvue, Cascade, and Dyersville. We had extra stops for a playground and a long lunch, which made the day fun for the girls as well.

I loved the forest scene in this print and bought a yard. I kind of wish that I would have purchased 2; it would make a really cool back for a little boy quilt.


These are some yellow and gray fabrics by Riley Blake. I’m thinking accent pillows in the living room of the new house. I plan on painting the walls a color similar to that yellow in the middle.


And a couple more fat quarters because I liked them, and one yard because it was cute and on sale.

    Oh my! I have massive fabric envy when it comes to that forest print. Just beautiful; you can have so much fun with a print like that, it lends itself to nearly anything. But you’re right, it’s so interesting as a whole – using it as a back would be perfect!

    Good finds!! I always like to visit quilt shops when I go out of town :). The 1st print reminds me of illustrations in a vintage fairy tale book. I also love the text prints you picked up!

    You found some fun fabrics – I really like that first one. Your shop hop took you in a circle around my old hometown of Hazel Green, WI. It’s at the center of Galena, Platteville and Dubuque.
