Kept In Stitches

Confessions of a fabric hoarder

Have I ever told you how much Greg and I LOVE to go on Quilt Shop Hops? It’s a great chance to see new things, meet new people, and find things we haven’t seen before. Recently, Greg found out about the Heart of the Valley Quilt Shop Hop. He read about it on Friday afternoon and by Friday night we had a motel reservation and were ready to leave first thing on Saturday morning. The Hop started in Bakersfield, CA—a little over 100 miles away, and continued through the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. It included 8 shops in Bakersfield, Porterville, Visalia, Reedley, Clovis, Oakhurst, and Turlock. We had an incredible time driving, singing along with the radio, and shopping for fabric and patterns. Thank you to all of the wonderful shops we visited…maybe we’ll see you again next year!

    looks like a fun group of shops……I thought at first that the car window sign said “I Broke for Quilt Shops”Giggle


    1. I’d love to give you permission, but I didn’t make this quilt. It was an image from the quilts I saw at QuiltCon this year. The quilt is Tessellation 4, Nydia Kehnle, so you might want to check with this person. Sorry I couldn’t really be of more help. Thanks for your interest though.
