Red Hen's theme was A Day at the Farm. The first photo is their quilt in its entirety, and I also included a close-up of the center portion of the quilt. This is not a panel - it is entirely appliqued. Amazing detail!
Grand Prize Winner: Stacie Harris, Macon GA
Stacie won a $100 gift certificate to each of the nine participating shops
Second Prize Winner: Sandie Hendler, Roswell GA
Sandie won a Baby Lock Grace Sewing Machine & Accessories
Third Prize Winner: Kathleen Bishop, Griffin GA
Kathleen won a Longaberger basket of 90 fat quarters (10 from each shop)
Congratulations to all of our winners! We sincerely appreciate everyone who participated in the 2009 Shop Hop, especially in light of the horrific weather we experienced. It was a lot of fun, and we are already making plans for 2010!

The Sweet Treats Bag will be winging its way to her as soon as I get her address. Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment. Stay tuned as I'm sure one of the other shop owners will be tempting you with something else soon!
We are busy as little bees here at Sweet Home Quilt Co. getting ready for Shop Hop! New fabric collections are arriving every day, kits and bundles are being cut, and samples are being sewn at break-neck speed. I have completed the design for our Shop Hop Quilt and cannot wait to see it made up! We'll start on it next week, in between everything else. Every Sunday I've been haunting local antique and junk shops searching for props to carry out our theme - Grandma's Closet. You will definately want to see us all dressed up in our "Grandma's" finery! The treasures I'm finding bring back so many fond memories for me of time spent in my Grandma's closet when I was a little girl!
I hope you're making plans to visit all the shops during the Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop, March 26 - 29th. We'll be looking for you here at Sweet Home Quilt Co.!

I used to spend summers on my uncle's farm in Wyoming. I loved being a farm girl for several weeks each year even though my cousins called me a "city slicker." Lots of fresh air and hard work: from gathering eggs from the hen house to hanging out the laundry to working in the hay fields to bringing the cows home to be milked in the evening. We also found time for plenty of horseback riding, swimming in the local swimming hole, campouts, cookouts and family togetherness.
Please email Mary Anne Henderson at Red Hen Fabrics to claim your prize. If she does not here from you by 1/31/2009, she will give the prize to the other person who commented.
