This weekend is the first Long Island Quilt shop hop. I signed up for the bus that left "Pieceful Quilting" in Riverhead at 9 am on Saturday. All I had to do was sit back and relax as I went from quilt shop to quilt shop. What's not to like.?
Here was our itinerary:
PIECEFUL QUILTING, RIVERHEAD, NY (631) 727-5909
CLOSE TO HOME, SELDEN, NY (631) 732-3342
112 SEWING SUPPLIES, PATCHOGUE, NY (631) 475-8282
SEW WHATS NEW, ISLIP, NY (631) 277-4215
THE QUILTING BUG, MASSAPEQUA, NY (516) 541-8600
SENTIMENTAL STITCHES, COLD SPRING HARBOR, NY (631) 692-4145
I bought my "Passport" from Angie at Pieceful qulting
I had to get it stamped at every store. They are drawing for prizes on Tuesday, so I'll let you know if I win anything!
Colleen was my "seat mate". She has a wonderful color sense and shared her food with me!
Of course I bought something in every store. First on my list was interfacing and "Fray Check" so I could start work on the bridal fabric quilt. Working with Satin is going to be interesting.
Many fat quarters jumped into my shopping bag as well. With all the wonderful fabric to choose from, who could blame me?
Each store had a pattern to give out and if you combined them you could make the "Shop Hop Quilt". The quilting bug had their sample sewn in beautiful batiks (my favorite), so I took a picture of that one:
What is nice about the quilt is the variety of blocks. There is paper-piecing, applique and real simple stuff. It was fun to see the same quilt done up so differently. Here is what the one at Pieceful quilting looks like:
Completely different (also out of focus - sorry).
So I had a good day.
