2013 Quilters Quest Day 1

Today, was a day of traveling all over Virginia and Maryland.  The travels were all well worth it, as we were traveling to 5 different Quilt Shops.  Today, I was joining 35 other ladies on the 2013 Quilters Quest.Shop Hop.  The bus I was on started at Material Girls at 7am.  We had a great tour guide, Mike. 

The first stop was Patches Quilting in Mt. Airy, Maryland.  This shop was really nice inside.  Lots of fabrics to choose from.  The help was very friendly and helpful.  

The next stop was on to Hagerstown, Maryland for Traditions of White Swan Quilt Shop.  I have seen this shop as a vendor at several different Quilt Shows.  They have a great collection of fabrics and tables of fat quarters. 

As we traveled to the next shop we were handed our lunches that were provided by Apple Spice Junction.  The Turkey sandwich I had was great, and very fresh.

The next stop was The Scrappy Apple Quilts & more in Winchester, Virginia.  I atmosphere of this shop.  Everyone was helpful and willing to go the extra step to work with you.    The variety of patterns and fabrics was great. 

Kelly Ann's Quilting, in Warrenton, Virginia was the next stop.  As we approached the door of the shop we were greeted by these three Minions, what a great greeting.  The store was nice and the people were really nice.

The final stop, of the day was in Great Fall, Virginia at Jinny Beyer Studios.  It was nice to meet and talk to her personally.  Her shop is really nice and full of nice fabrics.  Lots of fat quarters and kits.

Then we were off back to Material Girls.  Tomorrow morning we are off for 5 more shops to finish up the Shop hop.  What a great day of fabric shopping.
