Quilt Shop Hop

It started out to be a beautiful morning as you can see by this photo, sunrise hitting the West Boulder Mountains. By the time I was up and dressed the clouds rolled in, the wind picked up and the temperature dropped. We had a heavy rain storm about 5pm making us some nice mud pies.

I left home at 7:30am and headed to town to pick up friends Barb and Jeane. The Quilt Shop Hop is an annual event in Montana, the goal being to visit as many of the participating shops getting a stamp on your "quilt passport" at each stop. If you complete one of the circles, you are entered into a drawing for a Singer Featherweight--a very nice prize! The circles are huge covering many miles, to complete most of them would require an overnight stay. So, we just did a few stores today that we wanted to visit. We first headed to Washoe just outside Red Lodge, MT, a fabulous little quilt store in an old mining assay office. After that stop it was back to Red Lodge for lunch at the Regis Cafe, delicious! After lunch we visited the small Red Lodge quilt store which is going out of business and had a 25% off sale going on. Then it was on to Billings where we stopped at Back Door Quilts and Fiberworks. It was a great, fun, conversation filled day, we had a blast.

This is a photo of my purchases: a long cutting ruler, western fabric for a wallhanging for which I all ready have the pattern, quilt labels, the red fabric is for a skirt, a quilt pattern and the little clear bag in the center is tiny Christmas lights to sew on the fabric Christmas trees I made last year. Didn't spend too much and had a great time getting to know Barb and spending time with Jeane.
