This is the 14th year that we have had a Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop. Each year we “tweek” it a bit. In addition to the fabric for the 12″ quilt block, this year’s kits will include a silver plated CHARM. Visit all 11 shops & collect all 11 quilt related charms!
And, again, we’ve got a custom BATIK fabric from Hoffman, which can only be purchased from participating shops, as it was designed exclusively for the 11 member quilt shops!
At the downtown store, you can now pre-order 2012 Central Kansas Exclusive Shop Hop Custom Sunflower Batik Fabric, 100% cotton, 45″ wide.
This year there is more limited availability, so we won’t be taking as many pre-orders. We also have T-shirts & Shop Hop collectible pins available now too.
You may pick up the fabric in the store, any time after the start of the Hop or we will mail your fabric to you.
This fabric is hand painted and every yard is slightly different. The image here contains a collage of pieces cut from different bolts & sections of the bolt. Intensity of colors change from multi-color to primarily red. The background is ‘blacklight’, and matches Hoffman’s 1895-537 hand-dyed watercolor fabric.
The large sunflower is approx. 4″ in diameter. The large leaf is approx. 3″ long. Click here for more details and to order.
Starting in early September, each of the 11 shops will reveal their unique quilt featuring this exclusive fabric.
During the Quilt Shop Hop, for 3 days only, you’ll be able to visit each store and purchase their unique sampler block kit, which includes the pattern & fabric for a 12″ finished block, plus a silver-plated QUILT CHARM. Visit all 11 shops and you’ll be rewarded with a special “Thank You” gift too!
In late September, but before the Hop, you’ll be able to see photographs of all of the quilts at the web site:
I am very excited about my quilt, and am looking forward to seeing what the long-arm quilter adds to it with the quilting. Patterns and kits will be available in limited numbers. Hope you like it!
