Over the weekend I finished up the two week long shop hop in our area. The blocks the shops offered this time were very pretty, using fall colors and patterns. In the past I never would purchase the blocks, mostly because they were in a style that I did not care for. Living in Florida, the shop hops usually keep to a tropical theme.
So for the first time I bought some of the blocks and even a finishing kit. Now you know what that is, right? You buy a kit that is supposed to make a quilt from the blocks that you have purchased. So just as a word of warning, if you ever decide to purchase a finishing kit, make SURE that the directions to complete the quilt are included! What a surprise when I opened the package and there were no directions!!!
Okay the quilt shop did make it right, and finally emailed me the directions :-) It was a happy ending after all. But just as a word of caution, check before you leave the shop!
