Quilt Minnesota 2017 Southwest Region

My quiltin' cousin, Sue, myself and our chauffeur (DH) took off early Monday morning to do another region of the Quilt Minnesota 2017 shop hop! We visited 9 shops and covered 450 miles.

Here is our personal "Row'd Warrior"!!! Thanks for safely driving us around on the shop hop!

  1. Our first stop was Heather's Book Nook and Sew Much More which is half quilt shop and half used bookstore. It's a mother/daughter business set-up. They gave out chocolate dipped pretzel logs to all the shop hoppers--a nice treat!

This shop is in Granite Falls, so we stopped by to see the falls. There were several pelicans at the falls waiting for breakfast.

We walked over to get a closer look and discovered 30+ more pelicans down river!

2. Fabrics Plus in Marshall:

3.  Crafty Corner Quilt and Sewing Shoppe in Worthington had these cute samples:

4. Prairie Quilting in Windom shares space in a grain elevator!

5. Old Alley Quilt Shop in Sherburn is in a former bowling alley and had a bunch of samples made from the shop hop fabrics:

6. Michele's Quilting and Sewing Center in Blue Earth:

7. The Thimble Box of New Ulm:

8. Spinning Spools Quilt Shop of New Ulm:

They had a great idea for what to do with the 5" squares each shop is giving out:

9. The favorite for all three of us was our last stop, Sewing Seeds Quilt Co. of New Ulm:

The block on the right, below, was the free pattern Sewing Seeds Quilt Co. was giving out, called Minnesota Lucy, done in the Lucy Boston style. We bought kits for this adorable block done up in Minnesota fabrics:

And our reward for finishing the Southwest Region--12 flannel fat quarters! We are giving both bundles to DD2, who is making Days For Girls kits. These flannels are perfect for that project!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  2. Thanks for giving a peek at the shops on this region of the hop. Sewing Seeds is one of my favorites; I'm glad I don't live too close! Haha! I love the Minnesota Lucy block!

  3. So much fun to see the shops on the MN hop. My visit is always short and "in control" of others, but I can dream.

  4. Thanks for sharing! Looks like it was a lot of fun!

  5. That's a good looking group of shops! I just love all the Minnesota themed fabrics and quilts. Now I want to make half of those shop samples...

  6. I've been enjoying seeing all the MN shops on the hop! Looks like a lot of fun and those prizes are amazing!
