Road Trip!


It all started at Common Threads back in February. I was minding my own business when I ran across a brochure about a bus tour of 8 quilt shops (better known to us quilters as a "shop hop").  I thought little of it but my friend Jerri waved the thing in front of my face and talked about all the way back home.  At the time Jerri was very ill but still in high spirits.  We further discussed the trip and broached the idea to the other girls.  Everyone looked at their calendars to decide if their schedules would allow the trip.  I was free and signed up before a certain first deadline while the others made their decisions.  Needless to say, I was the only one who was able to make it.

My new friend, JoAnn and I had a blast teasing one another about shopping for certain colors and limiting ourselves or should I say pacing ourselves throughout the trip.  At one point on the bus, I turned around to talk to a seatmate and see two familiar faces (friends from a neighboring town). Yippee Skippy, more spending mates!!!!!


We had a fabulous 2 day road trip and visited 8 gorgeous quilt shops with the friendliest ladies you'd ever want to meet.  If you are a quilt-a-holic like I am, you might enjoy the following quilt shops:
Sitichin' Heaven - Quitman (online shop is excellent as well and lots of BOTMs)
Suzy's Quilt Shop - Garland (great Aunt Gracie selections and plenty BOTMs)
The Quilt Asylum - McKinney (WOW)
Pass Time Fabrics - Gainesville (plenty of fat quarters and great displays)
Blue Ribbon Quilt Shoppe - Wylie (great displays and fabric selections)
Cabbage Rose Quilting - Ft. Worth (solids, western and moda...oh my)
Quilt Among Friends - Arlington (florals galore)
Common Threads - Waxahachie (Civil War, Batiks, Tone-on-Tone and great BOTMs)

Shop Hops are so much fun, I'm glad you were able to meet up with someone to enjoy it with.

Hi Rhonda - I'm behind on blog reading. You are one very funny lady. I should have read your blog while I was ill; would have made well faster. I'm glad you enjoyed your shop hop and you didn't even have to drive. Way to go!
