Looking for something to do this month? Or wanting to go on a Road Trip? I have to perfect opportunity for you!! The Annual Wisconsin State Shop Hop Started this past friday and will go thru June 27th, 2015. The Shop Hop encompasses 66 different Quilt Shops throughout the State of Wisconsin. This year the fabric is absolutely amazing and is a collaboration between Windham Studions, Jeanne Horton (Country Sampler) and Julie Hendrickson (JJ Stitches). Each Shop was required to create a project using this fabric, we decided that we would make a quilt! It is perfect for you to take with you to your sporting events, picnics or give to that special someone who is going to a UW school! Our Quilt is 76″x83″ and the kits were cut so that you did not have to piece the long strips in the quilt, which is perfect for me because I want to make at least 2 of these for graduating seniors I know!

There are some FABULOUS prizes that are going to be given away as well. Each Shop has a $200 Gift Basket that you can enter to win, you don’t even have to complete the Shop Hop to be eligible!! The GRAND PRIZE, which would mean that you need to go to 51 Shops and complete one full “section” of the Shop Hop is a Trip for Two to the International Quilt Festival in Houston Texas, this year in October!!! It is a 5 day, 4 night stay which includes Airfare, and Lodging at the Hilton (which is right across the street from the Convention Center) and tickets to the Festival. Just saying if you win and you need some one to go along with you, I would be happy to fill that #2 spot for you!! 🙂
There will also be several Top Of the Hop Prizes that will be up for grabs to those of you that visit 36-50 of the Shops participating. For more information and for where the closest Shop that is participating to you so that you can get started please visit the Wisconsin State Shop Hop website at: www.wisconsinquiltshophop.com
