One More Quilt for Shop Hop

Well, Shop Hop starts tomorrow and I got one more quilt finished just in time. I got the binding done just a few minutes ago. Once more, I used the Simply Squares pattern and some Moda charm packs. The charm packs were from the Spring Fling line and I used four of them. Each charm pack had 39 squares which meant that there were an extra four from each pack. I used these to put a four patch in the corners.

We do not have yardage from the line at the shop yet but I was able to find border and binding fabrics from other lines that look great on the quilt. This is another happy quilt.

I quilted it using yellow variegated thread and a panto called Starburst. It was a good selection for this cute quilt.

I will be taking it to Tiny Stitches this afternoon when I go in to help decorate ths shop for the hop. I also have to finish packaging the kits so they will be ready for all the hoppers starting tomorrow.

We expect to be very busy for the shop hop. It lasts for 4 days and has 13 shops on the list. Because of the distance between the shops, it certainly takes more than one day to visit all of them.

I quilted the shop hop quilt and will post a picture of it tonight or tomorrow - it is very beautiful.


  1. Very cute Melinda, I'm trying to decide which of my fat quarters will work with this pattern.

  2. What wonderful eye candy over here! Since I make a lot of kids quilts, naturally I am drawn to the one from this post but the raffle quilt is gorgeous too.

    I missed out on the trip when our group did the shop hop but have been to Tiny Stitches--cool shop!

  3. The quilt is a very happy quilt. Have fun with the Shop Hop. Do you get to shopping to all the stores? Have you made your shopping list yet?

  4. What a fun quilt! It's so colorful, I just love it! I wish I knew of a shop hop in my neck of the woods. They sound like so much fun. Thanks for sharing your work.

  5. The colours in this quilt are lovely! Lots of fun!

  6. Great happy quilt ... perfect for a little kid or a big kid too! Love the colours you chose!
