March 15 is Worldwide Quilting Day! Can you think of a better way to celebrate than by hopping to all the metro quilt shops for the 15th annual Quilt Shop Hop? Forget about dusting, vacuuming, grocery shopping, and feeding the family - it's your day to celebrate! At Little Quilts the shop is ready, the decorations are up, the gift bags are out, and the staff can't wait for you to get here - we've got a big celebration planned! While you're here, buy a Shop Hop Charm Holder to display all the charms from the shops you visit. Charms will be $3 each or FREE with a $10 purchase.
I keep hearing from all the shop owners that they are busy, busy, getting ready for the Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop which begins in just two weeks on 3/15 and lasts a whole week this year through 3/22/2014.
Are you all getting excited?
If you have not seen a flyer yet, Sweet Home Quilt Co, closed this year and will not be a part of the shop hop, so don't head out to Conyers for your starting point. If you live on the East side of town, you might start at Patrick's in Covington, or down at A Scarlet Thread and then see Quilts and Fixins, Patrick's and Intown Quilters and Georgia Sewing and Quilting on the same day. Then hit all the other shops on another day. Of course with a full week and three weekend days this year, you could split the shops up into more than two days and stay to play a little longer in each shop.
This year Intown Quilters is having a little scavenger hunt for you all, so make sure to allow a little extra time at IQ so you can enjoy the hunt and not feel pressed for time.
See you on March 15th!

We're busy getting ready for the Shop Hop, March 15 - 22. Here at Little Quilts we're celebrating American and especially the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner. All finished and waiting for our Shop Hop friends are these cute Americana fabrics packaged in a reusable ceramic baking pan - it even includes a recipe for Star Spangled Cookies!
Cottontail Quilts has been busy working on three beautiful samples to showcase the Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop fabric. We hope to have these displayed soon! Be sure to order your fabric before the shop hop to be guaranteed to get what you want!
Our commemorative Charms and Charm Holders are selling fast. You will want to be sure to pick these up prior to the Shop Hop too. They are so cute!
