Shop Hop!!!

On Saturday Jenni, Jill, Little Jenny (Jill's Daughter) and I, Abby (Jenni's Daughter) went quilt shop hopping!! We had a great time, and ended up getting a bunch of new fabric!!

We started out at the Ankeny Sewing Center, and we didn't buy anything here, but they are having a huge consolidation sale with everything AT LEAST 15% off. Fabric is 25% off!!

We then made the short walk over to Quilter's Cupboard in Ankeny (Ankeny Sewing Center and Quilter's Cupboard are in the same strip mall). Jill and Little Jenny picked up some super cute fabrics while there.

After raiding the fabric at those two stores we made the trip up to Quilting Connection in Ames, Iowa. We all purchased fabric here as they have an AMAZING selection. Here I was able to find some "Very Hungry Caterpillar" fabric. I purchased it to make a baby quilt for a dear friend of mine who is due any day. Thank goodness I have already finished it!! See a post of it as soon as Jenni finishes long arming it! Jill purchased some fat quarters, and Jenni bought some really pretty batik fabric that was teal and brown with coffee cups all over it. At this point she has no idea what she is going to do with it. I guess we will see.

Then, we drove another 20 miles to Prairie Rose Quilts in Jewell, Iowa. I must say I was not impressed by this store, and the owner was quite rude to all four of us!! Needless to say I will not be back.

That rounded out our day of quilt shopping of course we hit a few other stores that were not fabric related but overall it was a GREAT day!! We only wish that Amy could have joined us on our adventure!! Maybe next time!!
