12 Quilt Shops - 2 Days

Whew - we did it.  We left at at 7:00 this morning and got to the first quilt shop in Ceres, California and worked our way south until we reached home today - home being Thimble Town in Visalia. 

Anyway, here's a picture of most of my loot.  The orientals are what I collected at each shop, I got w patterns, one for a diaper bag and one for a purse, the latest Shop Sampler magazine, fabric to make the purse, a stencil and the rest of the stuff you see are goodies the shops gave away.  We got block patterns from each store except for Ceres.  They didn't have any and we got there first thing this morning.  Oh well, if I ever make the quilt, I'll jut make up a block for that area. 

Janice makes a good riding partner and navigator.  Even though we wouldn't not have made some wrong turns if we actually would listen to the GPS. 

Thank you Janice for a wonderful 2 days.  And thanks to the stores who participated.  It was the first time they had a hop and I do believe it was quite successful.
