..was a HUGE success!! Here are the four lovely ladies that I went with- Judy (from the Seattle area), Dorothy (would you believe she lives 5 minutes from where I live on Vancouver Island!), Gwen, our driver (from Oregon) and Anne (from Alberta). We managed to go to a total of seven shops!! Five shops were listed on the Spring Fling list but we managed to find two more in our travels!!
This was one of our favourites- Stars and Scraps in Corona!!
This is a picture of the FREE quilt pattern that they gave out along with a fat quarter. After receiving a free fat quarter from all the participating shops we will have enough fabric to make this quilt…all we need to buy is fabric for the stars’ points and the white background. It is such a sweet little quilt!! Love it!!
Here’s Gwen outside of the Bluebird Quilts…a shop we stumbled onto…
The Calico Horse (I love this shop!!) had all their remnants on half price so we all managed to scoop some bargains!
Now for the FREE stuff…it felt like Halloween!! Each shop gave everyone a fat quarter and pattern, plus the Busy Bee QS gave out a package of wild flower seed package, embroidery floss and a Busy Bee Charm!! So thoughtful…
I’m exhausted!! This shop hopping is a lot of work!! Poor Gwen had to man the wheel and drive down the wild freeways!! She had to do some crazy driving to avoid a white truck with Saskatchewan licences plates…sheeesh…these crazy tourists should learn how to drive the freeways!! ;o)
Have a fantastic Friday and Happy Quilting!
