Quilters' Quest Shop Hop 2021
Quilters' Quest Shop Hop includes seven shops that surround the Albany, NY (aka Capital District) area; four in New York, and three in Massachusetts. This year's shop hop was especially exciting for me as I was asked to the design the quilt for the round robin quilt. Check out the seen different fabric choices for my design.
Scroll thru the pictures; let me know which one is your favorite! Description below.
3637 Carman Road (Route 146), Schenectady, NY 12303
QuiltBug was the first store I visited. I love the rail fence blocks in their sample; I think it's very striking.
Login Cabin Fabric 1145 Route 9W, Selkirk, NY 12158
LG used an adorable bee fabric collection which really lent well to the Picnic in the Park theme for the shop hop. I also really like the double border which is a change from the pattern I wrote.
KC Framing and Fabrics 67 Davidson Dr., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
KC used a bunch of Tula Pink fabric. (They carry a nice selection of Tula Pink in the store.) I like the scrappy feel of their quilt while still being structured within a fabric line/theme.
Karen's Quilting Corner 723 Cold Spring Road, Williamstown, MA 01267
Karen choose all batik fabric for her quilt, including the background fabric. The picture doesn't really show just how vibrant the batiks are.
Pumpkin Patch 43 Main Street, Lee, MA 01238 www.PumpkinPatchQuilts.com
Pumpkin Patch picked an adorable line of woodland creatures fabric for the quilt. She even did some awesome fussy cutting for the center star and the log cabin blocks.
Brookside Quiltworks 2 Sheffield Road, South Egremont, MA 01258 www.brooksidequiltworks.com
I love it when people mix batiks and regular quilting cotton in their quilts. Brookside did this with their quilt. She paired up Kaffe Fassett with batiks just beautifully.
Adirondack Quilts 22 Fifth St., South Glens Falls, NY 12803
AQ picked fabric created by local fabric designer, Jessica VanDenburgh of Sew Many Creations. I pieced this quilt top together, and my favorite thing about it is the change in color from one "row" to the next.
Most of the shops made quilt kits (or are able to make them upon request), so if you have a favorite, contact the store and ask about a kit. (Tell them the designer sent you!)

This shop hop was such a treat to me! I have to thank the Quilters' Quest Shops for the opportunity to design for them. And if you're in the capital district area of New York, be sure to drop by these stores to add to your fabric stash. Below are a couple more links of above mentioned designers. Enjoy! And I"ll see you next time in my quilt lab!
