Shop Hop Quilts 2018

Shop Hop is on again in August this year. There are 9 shops participating - you choose the fabric selection you want to collect, pay the registration fee of NZ$45 and in August you visit each of the shops to collect a part of the pattern and one or two of the 15 fat eighth's for your collection. Whether you just collect the fabric to use or make the chosen quilt is up to you. You can collect more than one fabric selection, just pay each registration. You can register at any of the 9 shops, just specify your chosen fabric selection on the registration form. Here are some of the quilts -
Mine is made using a variety which I called Eclectic Bright Mix.
A little bit of everything especially chosen to make this quilt, yet useful for many others. And here is my quilt -
I am very happy with the way this quilt turned out. I decided to use a collection of black, white and grey, mostly texts and a couple of 'brick' patterns for the background. It really helps to pop my appliques and piecing.
Here are some of the other quilts
Amiees Homesstead Quilts version
Angels in Gumboots version
Busy Bee Quilt Shop's version
Cherry Pie Bernina's version

Quilter's Lane made 2 versions - a pieced and an appliqued
Still 3 to come, will post those as soon as I have them. Do call in and see the quilts in each store if you want and collect a registration.
