The All Iowa Shop Hop will be here before we realize it. In about a month, quilters will be crisscrossing the state visiting all the wonderful quilt shops. To aid them on their adventures we thought it would be fun to give you a little inside scoop on some of the projects which have been created and will be available in the 2019 Sew Iowa magazine. Here is a little peek at three projects.
Shop Hopping Backpacks
The first one is the Shop Hopping Backpacks. This is a fun project to take the stress off of those shoulders and arms as you are shopping hopping around the state. This project was designed by Melodie Chitty from Little House Quilting in Greene. Melodie will have complete kits available at her shop for purchase with all the accessories needed to make this adorable backpack.
On The Go Tote
When you fill up your Shop Hopping Backpack you can unload the contents into the On The Go Tote.
The tote is a large one and will hold lots of wonderful purchases. Eileen Fournier, from It’s Sew Tempting in Story City has created this amazing tote. The Snail’s Trail block is cleverly arranged on both the front and the back of the tote. All the fabric will be available at the store to make this modern tote.
Shop Hop Pillows
If you need a little rest after all the fun and excitement of the day, we have a few comfy pillows to rest and re-energize for the next round of shopping adventures. The pillows come in a large and small size using the specially designed panels by artist, Sara Franklin.
Patterns for the Shop Hopping Backpack and the On the Go Tote and Pillows will be available in the 2019 Sew Iowa Magazine.
Stay tuned!!!! We will be featuring a few more amazing projects in the upcoming weeks, which will be featured in this year’s Sew Iowa magazine.
Happy Shop Hopping Everyone!!!
