Let's go to the Hop!


It's a "Day at the Fair" for the 2012 Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop! We all worked so hard to make sure that everything was ready when our doors opened this morning. Everything was. :) 
So, here's a little view of what the shop looks like all dressed up! 


Buckets of "paint" draw you to the solids area.


And be sure to look up- you never know what you'll find!


Why not whip up a new Spring outfit to wear to the fair?


Or a cozy pair of pyjamas? Or a sweet travel pillow and comfy quilt?


We have so many new quilt samples- This is "Oh, My Hex!" made from the Pam Kitty Morning line from Lakehouse Dry Goods. (Shameless plug here- this is my own pattern.)


Shenandoah made from Tanya Whelan's Karavan.


Suzette made this block from Minick & Simpson's Prairie Paisley II line from Moda.


Nancy Smith designed, pieced and quilted this beautiful bargello quilt! It is gorgeous.


Take 5 Deserves an Even Break is our "blue" ribbon favorite new quilt pattern!


Lots of beautiful quilts and clothes dot the store like bunting.


Bold and Beautiful is Laura's newest bundle pattern and it is available in our gift bags given to each customer! This is it hanging behind the Olive Ann trunk show.


Suzette made our shop hop quilt, Country Flair, and it is absolutely gorgeous!! 


So, what else would you find at a fair but goldfish in a bag? I'm writing the pattern for these cute goldfish- look for it soon!


You just can't beat Dr. Seuss, especially made up in cute pj's!


Don't you love these flowers? They are a trunk show from Daisy and Dell and we have the pattern at the shop so you can make your own!


If you need window treatments or baby bedding made, call Mindy from Stitches! (Come by for her business card.) She made this adorable ensemble for our half-crib in the novelty area!


Another great project from Daisy and Dell- the Big Bag! It would make a wonderful overnight bag for a child. 


Do come by and see the class quilt samples in our Handi Quilter studio! We have lots of fun classes coming up!


Everywhere you turn, there are more surprises!


The Big Zig made from Dear Stella's Heirloom line.


The Quilt Smart Lone Star quilt made from Silent Cinema by Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit. 


Two of our "blue" ribbon books- Another Bit of Schnibbles, by Carrie Nelson and String Quilt Revival, by Virginia Baker , both of which will be used for upcoming classes with Mary! Peeking out from under the table is Art Gallery's Poetica line!


The novelty area, because it's just fun.


The batik area is housing some fabulous trunk shows from Cleo's Designs and Aunties Two. You can see the amazing Aunties Two bags in the center of the photo.
I left work a little early to pop over to Quilts N' Fixin's to see their Dog Show! 


How sweet are these puppies in the window? 


Loved this bright and beautiful Hanging Gardens (Cozy Quilt Designs) quilt!


A cute little pup pincushion.


These Garden Patch cats are too cute to be chased by the dogs.


The Best of Show winners strut their stuff.


Also loved the Quilts N' Fixin's shop hop quilt. Look at that little paw! There were games to play and I tasted pineapple cotton candy for the first time. It was delish!


Yep, everyone was top dog today!

The 2012 Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop continues through Sunday. Stop on by and see us!!

The shop looked great. Everyone did a great job. I saw a lot of great ideas that through the year I might get accomplished. Angela's car didn't make pictures in the shop hop. She was so excited.
