2017 Illiana Shop Hop Quilt
The Finishing Kit for this years Illiana Shop Hop Quilt has been unveiled at Prairieland Quilts. The theme this year is “Illiana through the year” with each of the 11 participating shops designing a block to feature a specific month. December was our project which depicts a snowman looking over a quilt on a fence. Since there are only 11 shops, everyone also created a March Block.
Suzanne designed her finishing kit so it could be used as a complete quilt or 4 seasonal wall hangings. Utilizing elements from the different blocks to create additional features in the quilt.
The shop hop runs June 16th through July 1st this year and all shops will have the same hours of operation: Mon – Sat 10am to 5:00pm (local time) and Fridays till 6:00pm. Prizes include a Janome Sewing Machine, 110 Fat quarters, or 11 – $25 gift certificates. Additionally, through the hop, participants receive a 15% discount on fabric cuts of 1/2 yard or more.
