My Utah Quilt Shop Hop

My high school "chum" (a word left over from my ardent Nancy Drew reading in 5th grade) , Jean and I were exploring Sugar House and stopped in a wonderful little quilt shop called "Pipers".
I love this quilt. I've actually made two quilts from this pattern-it was really fun.
More from "Pipers" above and below.
My long time friend, Susan, took me to the Deseret Book Store in Ft. Union, which has a great Quilt fabric department upstairs (See below)
Next we went to the "Whimsy Cottage" in the Cottonwood area. This amazing floral kaleidoscope type quilt just blew me away! The colors and piece work and applique were stunning.
More fun colors at Whimsy Cottage. We also stopped at "Elaines", but my pics from there were fuzzy.
Ok, I TRIED to stay away from "Material Girls", but couldn't quite do it. It really is my favorite quilt shop anywhere.
Their fabrics and patterns are so cheery and cute and retro!
One last pic from Material Girls (above),  My daughter Heidi took me to a really great quilt shop in Draper called "Thimble and Threads"  (see below)
I liked the border treatment on this quilt
This was their "block of the month" quilt - pretty impressive!
Love these colors, especially back lit from the window.  Thanks for your patience and coming along on my "hop". Wish you all could have been with me!
