2009 Shop Hop Quilts

For those of you who didn't get to participate in this year's Shop Hop, or maybe weren't able to make it to all nine shops, I thought you might like to see the Shop Hop quilts that each participating shop put together. I am always amazed at the differences!
Heritage Quilts & Fabrics featured Christmas Morning as their theme interpretation.
Intown Quilters featured Summer Vacations.

Little Quilts carried out a Circus theme for the day. Check out their blog for more Shop Hop photos.

Patrick's featured a Weekend at Grandma's.

Quilts and Fixins' theme was Saturday Morning Cartoons.

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!

Sweet Home Quilt Co. played dress up in Grandma's Closet. Our quilt featured our Cut Glass Dish block in our signature black and white fabrics with a little green thrown in for good measure! Check out our blog for more Shop Hop pictures.
I did not get to see the quilts from Tiny Stitches or A Scarlet Thread. They will probably post photos later, or you may be able to see them on their individual websites.
The Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop 2009 was a blast! And we're already making plans for next year. Thanks to everyone for their support and patronage at the participating shops.
