My Birthday Quilt Shop Hop

I turned 40 on December 16th. On Saturday the 18th, Scott and I went on a Shop Hop tour to celebrate my birthday. (He's a great guy to agree to come along to 3 quilt shops, he brought a book with him to read while I shopped) Our first stop was Quilter's Corner in Finleyville. I love this shop, they always have a lot to choose from.

Here's the collection that I found a Quilter's Corner. A variety of some fun fabrics.

Our second stop, after lunch at Panera Bread in Bethel Park, was Quilter's Depot. I found a fat quarter of Mary Engelbreit blue and white polka dot fabric. They had several Moda fabric lines, it was a nice shop.

Here's a picture of Scott and I at our third stop, The Quilt Company in Allison Park. This was a very nice shop, they also sell Bernina's here. It was big, lots of space for fabric and classes.

I found a few Nicey Jane fabrics and some other Dena Designs fabrics from Free Spirit.

And I also found this - Heather Ross Lightning Bugs, I bought the whole bolt. I was so excited. This fabric is so soft, I love it. I'm going to be listing some fat quarters and 1/2 yards on my Etsy site soon.

After the quilt shop tour we went to McCormick and Schmick's at the South Side Works in Pittsburgh. We had a nice meal and over all a really fun day.


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful time on your birthday! Good husband, too!! Enjoy all your lovely finds!!

  2. I just got caught up on your latest posts...congratulations on your 40th!!! (I thought you were much younger, of course!) You've been busy - so many beautiful projects. I can't wait to see what you'll make with your latest fabrics, especially the Nicey Jane.
