If you have been following along you know that I went shop hopping a few weeks ago with my two favorite quilting buddies. My mom and sister! We went to eight shops in two days, doesn't sound like that many, but when you add in the distance, road construction etc.... it's quite a feat! I honestly don't know how people complete the entire state during shop hop. I know they do! I see the pictures of the weary, bleary eyed couples that manage to visit each and every shop posted on Facebook. I'm an exhausted mess after doing just one section! Here are some more pictures from our fun travels....
Our next stop was All In Stitches in the town of Zumbrota.
My husband's family's neck of the woods. It's a shame I only make it
to this shop once a year, usually during shop hop. It's a great shop!
It was afternoon by the time we reached Zumbrota! We couldn't believe how the time flew by! We started our Shop Hopping at 9:00. After a quick lunch at McDonald's we continued on our journey and made our way to the next stop....Rather Bee Quilting in Lake City, Minnesota.
|A couple of planters full of geraniums greet us|
by the entryway... very pretty.
|Very nice window display...|
|Yea! Another row by row pattern too!|
|Isn't this an adorable summertime design for the Row by Row!|
One of my favorites!
|Love, love, love the purple polka dot swimsuit with the ruffle...|
It's the polka dot fabric and embellishments that make this row by row block so cute.
Five shops visited, three more to go! I'm car weary.... We're an hour away from the next shop and not sure if we will make it by five. My sis is on the phone, hurrah! They are open until 5:30pm. we're going to make it there in time before they close! So we are off, driving the curvy roads of bluff country in Minnesota. It's a very pretty drive... on our way to Bluffview Quilt Shop in Winona, Minnesota.

|A beautiful, colorful wall of fabric... so pretty!|

I like the corner blocks.
We ended our day at the Hubbell House in Mantorville. Had a small August birthday celebration for dessert. Happy Birthday mom and Laura!!!
