Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop

Time for the 2008 Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop! Stars Over Savannah - our 47” x 59” quilt made with the blocks for the 13 participating shops in the Greater Atlanta Shop Hop 2008. The theme for the year is “Cruising into Spring”. Little Quilts is the Port of Savannah. Kit ($64.95) contains fabrics for the backgrounds in assorted blue sky, cloud, and bird fabrics, plus fabrics in reds, golds, blues, greens and browns for stars, and other blocks. The parrot sits on his perch watching the “Stars over Savannah”. ½ yd binding and 3 yds. backing not included. Pattern for our setting is included. Patterns for 13 blocks sold separately will be available after March 5th.
We selected a Friendship Star block, renamed it “Savannah Star” to commemorate the Port of Savannah for the Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop 2008, and combined it with assorted golds, reds, and blues for a lap size quilt 50” x 59”, $66.95. Add colors from your stash to make it larger if desired. Kit includes all fabrics plus binding. 3½ yds backing not included. This easy patchwork block can be made with traditional rotary cutting and piecing, 3” Thangles©, or the Nifty Notions half square ruler.

"Cruise" to all 13 ports of call and get your passport stamped at each one. You will be eligible for a $100 gift certificate to each shop or a Janome Sewing machine and attachments. Fun awaits you as you enter different cruisin' ports of call. Little Quilts will take you to Savannah with lighthouses, sailing ships and a pirate or two.
