Are You Hopping This Week?

It's hopping here in more ways than one. This week the Tri County Shop Hop, Sew Northwest, kicks off on Wednesday.  Carol up at Fabrics Etc in Bellingham is blogging about all the shops & their blocks if you want to take a peek at all of the blocks. Julie from Keepsake Cottage in Bothell posted their version of the quilt on their blog today.

I had the pleasure of quilting the quilt for Fabrics Plus in Anacortes. Carol & crew worked their magic & incorporated the blocks into an art quilt wonder. It was really fun to quilt!
The blocks are hidden in the piecing. I drew some "invisible blocks" in the sky & quilted them too. I thought it broke up the sky.

Anacortes is all about the ferry & getting to the San Juan Islands. If you've never been you really should go.
I used a sea weedy kelp design for this area. All you have to do is click on the picture for a closer look.

There are even blocks in the sand at the bottom of the quilt. 

I'll be at Aunt Mary's Quilt Shop on Thursday doing some kind of handwork for a quilt. It's my day out with the Sassy's, the queens of applique! Friends & quilting make for a very good day.

What about this weather we've been having? I'm ready for March to go out like a lamb, how about you?

Be back soon.

Really pretty! I think the hidden blocks add a lot of interest. Your other design elements are great too. Not too many, but definitely keep your eye roving to find more. Quilting compliments the landscape too. Great job!
