Today I had the privilege of being able to spend the day with my two favorite sewing buddies.  Brenda and Diane.  We thee left the house this morning around 8:30 a.m. and headed for Fresno and the first stop of the Holiday Shop Hop.  First stop was Cottage Quilts in Fresno.  I had my cup of Hot Cocoa, enjoyed visiting with other hoppers and picking out fabric. I picked up a few yards of material for borders and backs for two little twister table runners that I have made and 20 fall fat quarters.  Second stop was Quilters Paradise in Clovis.  There I found two charm packs and coordinating fabrics.  So excited.....I wanted to sew them up right then.....Just didn't have a sewing machine in the car. LOL!!!  Our third stop was at the Mennonite Quilt store in Reedley.  I picked up 9 yards of red polka dot fabric and 6 yards of blue fabric for backs.  It was in there sale area so I got a great bargain. 

At that point we were all starving so it was off to lunch.  We walked a few blocks over for lunch to this little Mexican restaurant.  YUM YUM.  Had a great lunch with Brenda, Diane, Jeannie, Carolyn, Ferral and Sue. 

Back into the car and we Headed for Hanford and Quilters Quarters.  Sorry to say I did not pick up any material there but I did have a brownie for desert.  Very Good. 

Our last stop was at Thimble Towne.  We had to take Jeremy his birthday present so we planned Thimble Towne as our last stop.  Of course we entered the store singing Happy Birthday to Jeremy with his present and balloons in tow.  Since I already knew what I was buying there (I checked it out the day before) I got all my fat quarters and coordinating fabric and found a couple of new patterns. 

You will see all the photos below.
My Haul

Here is 20 Fall Fat Quarters

Both of these fabrics are borders and backs for table runners I have made.

This is a charm pack of 5" squares (42 squares) and three yards of coordinating fabric

Another set of charms and coordinating fabric

This is a set of 29 fat quarters and 3 yards of fabric to go with them.

I also purchased a couple of different patterns.
Now to make some time to finish my Christmas projects so I can get to some new sewing projects.

We did take photos of ourselves in front of or inside each store but they are on Brenda's camera so I will have to get them from her another time. 
Thanks for stopping by. Encourage each other in quilting.  Happy Quilting, Paula
