So - after 7 days, we loaded up the car and headed home. We had to drive all across Minnesota and since yesterday was day 1 of the "Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop".. we made a few stops along the way.
I didn't travel off our route - so we only stopped at 3 stores. But they were all wonderful stores that I will be sure to visit again. My boys were real troopers too. What would normally be a 4 1/2 hour trip.. became 7 hours. I had warned them that we would be stopping and there would be NO COMPLAINING!!! They actually got into it.. my oldest was even saying things like "Mom.. look at this" and "Mom.. look at that quilt on the wall.. it has a lot of detail". LOL
Anyway - my first stop was "Back Porch Quilts" in Detroit Lakes MN (my husbands home town). I've been to this store before and it never disappoints. I need to save up some $$ and go back!!
I had to get the charm pack.. love it!
My second stop was "Front Porch Quilts" in Walker MN. Let me just say ADORABLE!!!
I grabbed a charm pack of "Awesome" by Sandy Gervais. I'm going to make a cute fall table topper I think.
My final stop is a shop that is close to my house.. THANK GOODNESS!! Because I'm in love with this store!!! It's called "The Hingeley Road Quilt Shop".
Look at all these precuts...
I'm going to visit the quilt stores in the Duluth area this week and sew what other treasures I can find. But first.. groceries!! The fridge was looking pretty empty after being gone a week!
And tonight.. SEWING!!!!! Pin It
