Last STOP…Fat Quarters Shop….

Our last stop in the San Diego Shop Hop was Fat Quarters Shop where a 60’s theme was happening!!  Apparently Elvis IS alive and well and living at the Fat Quarter Shop…He was at the door to greet us and  Sandy puckered up for a long awaited kiss!

This quilt with the 1/2” squares ALWAYS generates talk…AMAZING!!


And on the way out…Sandy got a huge cheer as she won at the till!!  Anyone with the correct change for whatever she bought won a prize!  She won a very nice applique book!  Here she is whooping it up!!


Really…you can’t take Sandy anywhere….but then again…she IS from Canada!  :o)))

Have a magical Monday and Happy Stitching!~P


  1. Loved that little heart baby quilt!! I may get to use the "monkey" quilt for my expected great-granddaughter.

  2. I like that 'vine quilting' idea.
    This weekend is the Lancaster Quilt Show...can't wait...we are leaving Thursday to start the shopping and looking! Pics to be posted next week. L

  3. Lots of beautiful quilts! Congratulations to Sandy! What a nice prize! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for another great show and tell of a quilt shop Paulette. I'll have to try and find it the next time I'm down that way, they have some very cute projects and ideas.

  5. Some day I am going to go to that shop!!! Thanks for the view :) I loved the Feb. Berties...we started with March :(

  6. You really got to visit with some great stores, lots of nice goodies and displays.


  7. Cute Quilts in the show and Tell today. Glad Sandy got to see Elvis. He was a Long way from Graceland. The quilt you showed that was behind signs, looks like chairs or something. Thanks for the Show!

  8. What a fun shop hop. Thanks for sharing. I loved the furry faces hanging by the Thistle quilt. The pin cushion head was very interesting. Would be fun to make a bunch for my next retreat. Wonder if there was a pattern.
