Shop Hopping

Anyone participating in the Row by Row Experience?  I like the idea but so far the two states I have visited, Mississippi and Montana, have no quilt shops participating.  That hasn't stopped me from paying them a little visit though.

Visitor Map
Even though this quilt shop isn't participating in that shop hop, I was able to represent Orlando on their U.S. map of visitors.

Main Street Quilting
 A few purchases of fabric and Aurifil thread were made there.

I preordered Savor Each Stitch and had it shipped here to Montana.  Enjoying the nice weather (and a brownie),  I read through half of the book.  Loving it so far!

reading material
 I also stocked up on a few quilt magazines to read while sitting outside on the deck.

Leo and his parents are here for a week and they were kind enough to bring me the Row by Row Experience pattern from the Quilted Strait in Port Gamble.  I don't believe this is how the shop hop is supposed to work, but I did recently visit the shop (and would again if I happened to be there during the specific times) so I think that counts.

My daughter-in-law also brought back some lovely fat quarters from her trip to Paris.  

I have also done a little bit of sewing these last few days, but since that sewing is for a gift, I can't share it quite yet.

Thanks for stopping by!  
Happy stitching,


  1. So fun to get new STUFF! Enjoy that little precious boy

  2. You certainly know how to vacation! Love your new fabric acquisitions, and TY sew much for putting Orlando on the shop map.

  3. Oooh, would you be willing to share that house row pattern? I discovered this by chance in MN last weekend, mom and I picked up a butterfly row pattern in New London, MN.
