Wisconsin Quilt Shop Hop – June Quilt Project

Last year I did the Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop and I’ve done 2 1/2 quilts with the fabrics that I picked up.

This year, I saw an advertisement for a Wisconsin Quilt Shop Hop and fell in love with the fabrics. So, on Wednesday this week, I “ran” over to Wisconsin to get some of their fabrics.  Well, long story short: after 9 emails, and  phone calls I did get some of each of the fabrics.  They are coming from all over Wisconsin. I can’t wait to get them!!!

Now, since I was in a quilt shop and they were cutting the fabric that they had there for me, I “browsed” around!!!  I not only came home with the Shop Hop material, but I also came home with 3 other patterns and a kit.  I just fell in love with this bright, simple pattern/kit.

So Saturday we did a 12 mile training walk (for the 3Day Breast Cancer Walk in August) and when I got home I was exhausted and my feet hurt. After a shower and a short nap, I was restless and tried to figure out something that I could do that didn’t involve using my feet.  Answer: Quilt of course!!!!!

So I pulled out the simple little kit that I purchased and I got to work. I didn’t get it all done on Saturday, but then redesigned the border a little bit (used some fabric that I’ve had for quite awhile) and finished up the top this afternoon.

Pattern: Baby Cakes by Legacy Patterns
Kit Purchased from: Pins ‘N’ Needles Quilt Shop in St Croix Falls, Wi

I could spend hours and hundreds of dollars in these quilt shops. I must have spent 25 minutes talking myself out of purchasing the kit they had put together with the Wisconsin Shop Hop Material – but I didn’t. I am so proud of myself!!!  But the Minnesota Shop Hop is only 6 weeks or so away!
