Shop Hop Part II

31 comments
Shop Hop Continued -

Our next stop was Quilts Etc. in Sandy. Their fairy tale was Cinderella. They always take the shop hop theme and have fun with it.
The sign out front says "Welcome to Cinderella's Ball". Their classroom was decorated and had snacks for the weary shop hoppers.The walls of the classroom were lined with great quilts to look at as shop hoppers took a break.
They had a gold ring toss, which I did not win. And front and center in the classroom was their Cinderella's ball gown quilt. And they gave a free pattern for it. It was a darling quilt.
There was another gown quilt displayed in the main quilt room, sort of a sunbonnet Sue variation.
We went to Thimbles and Thread in Draper next. They were celebrating Wizard of Oz.
Dorothy and Oz decorated the entire store. The clerks all had aprons in blue gingham, too.
This is their shop hop quilt but no free pattern.They also had 2 other Dorothy themed quilts in their classroom.
The Toto in the basket was my favorite decoration. It is a cute shop but it was pretty crowded by the time we got there.
We skipped over to a "by way" store not on the shop hop list. But actually this was my favorite shop of the day (2nd favorite was Pipers). The Material Girls store was featured in a Quilt Sampler this year as a favorite quilt shop. It deserved the attention. I could nearly live there! And I took a ton of pictures. The following are not even all of them.
This simple quilt was by the back door. Such a plain pattern but it comes alive with these reproduction fabrics.
They have great fabrics and displays and so many unique independent quilt artist patterns. I was really impressed with all of it.
There is so much in this store but it doesn't seem cramped. They have it set up really well and the ceilings are so high that the quilts have space enough so you can really enjoy them.
They had some unique items and I did get some fabric and patterns at Material Girls. The store is pretty big and they had plenty of help to move shop hoppers along.

I'm done shop hopping. I know lots of quilters get to every store but I just go to a few each year. It makes a fun but exhausting day.

Material Girls is one of my very favorite shops. I didn't get to go on the Shop Hop this year and am so glad that you took such great pictures. I feel like I was there. Vicki

Wasn't the Shop Hop fun...My youngest and I made it to all of the shops in 2 days. We also had her 9 month old with us. You talk about exhausting...I'm due for a long rest;)

Sherry said...

quiltingnana said...

Thanks for your shop hop tour photos and description...the shops all seem so lovely. Particularly liked the Wizard of Oz shop --I'm waiting for my Oz quilt to be done at the quilters...Also made that same Dorothy dress for my granddaughter at Christmas!

I am envious...you certainly have a lot of great shops around you!

Laila said...

WOW, What a great shop hop it must have been. So many lovely quilting ideas. I think I have to look at your wonderful photos over and over again. Thanks for sharing ;-)

Jacquie said...

So many beautiful quilts and the fabric...oh so much fabric! Thanks so much for sharing all your pictures. So inspirational!

Elaine Adair said...

Ohh my, how could you show MORE, so soon after the last? I have enough eye candy for the next week!

Many, many thanks!

Elizabeth said...

I love Material Girls. My in-laws live near it so I stop in quite often when I'm in the neighborhood! They always have cute stuff and the owner is so nice and helpful!

CJ said...

I am so glad that EYE CANDY does not put on the pounds. WOWEEE! I love all of your pictures but I am so envious of all of the quilt shops you got to visit. I have nothing like that here. Too bad that Wizard of Oz shop did not have a free pattern. Theirs is too cute! Looks like little twisters on it. In the first shop the Ball Gown quilt is adorable! I like in the Material Girls store the quilt with the household duties appliques. CUTE! I should have taken notes so that I could comment on more but I forget now all the lovelies I wanted to comment on. Feel free to share more pictures. I sure would not mind one bit.

CJ said...

Oh yes, I LOVE that pink and white and black floral print bag. If someone made that, do tell WHO makes that fabric???

Cheryl said...

Nanette - thanks for the great photos. And I think I will be calling Material Girls in the morning to order some patterns!!!

eileen said...

I have been enjoying your Shop Hop adventures SO much. Each picture is so full of colorful eye-candy.. you can't possible take everything in! Thank you so much for taking us along.
