Rocky Mountain Quilt Fever-A Celebration of Stars

Yeah! It's almost time for the Denver area's 10th shop hop--A Celebration of Stars--to honor our customers, who truly are our stars. To make it extra special we designed a gorgeous batik with columbines, aspen leaves, pinecones, and pine needles.

Each shop chose a star pattern and then the blocks were set into a giant Rolling Star, that features the specially designed fabric. The hoppers will buy kits to make up the Rolling Star portion of the quilt and then each of the participating 8 stores designed different finishing kits. This is our (Great American Quilt Factory's) quilt. It finishes to approx. 77' square. It is beautiful!

We also have 5 additional colorways of the featured fabric. These fabrics are exclusive to our shops.

Rocky Mountain Quilt Fever Shop Hop is August 7, 8, and 9th. See more information and download the passport on our website.

We hope to see you hopping,
Lynda and Nancy

We all are working on our quilts and hope to have them posted by July 1st. We designed a very special toile fabric that has representations of Colorado. This fabric will be available in two ways--by the way, it is so fun and you'll have to have a piece just for the memories. We will try to have a piece in the store and online for you to see soon.
