Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop
Join the fun and excitement of the 2017 Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop. We've added Thursday to our regular Friday, Saturday and Sunday line up which gives you the opportunity to visit all 8 shops. Grab a carload of friends and family for your drive to shops in Alden, Hutchinson, McPherson, Newton, Severy, Wichita, and Winfield to discover the friendliness and unique personality of each shop.

Shop Hop is October 5, 6, 7 & 8, and the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday hours are 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday is 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. All shops have the same hours for these 4 days.

All of the shop quilts have been revealed (you can see images of the quilts from all of the shops on the Shop Hop website), and here's ours: Irish Meadow.

Pony Express Block Party
Now through September 24... plan on joining in our Pony Express Block Party - East KANSAS version! Northcott Fabrics have specially designed 14 prints plus great Toscana coordinates to capture the historic nature and significance of the Pony Express. To celebrate, six shops have joined together for your express pleasure! Visit each of the shops from September 9 to 24 to get stickers on your postcard passport and enter to win prizes. (One Kansas circuit doable 8 days faster and 1,547 miles shorter than the Pony Express!)

A full postcard, 12 stickers, makes you eligible for a grand prize. (You'll need to visit other Pony Express Block Parties to get the full passport. Here are more details, including other participating shops in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada & California.)

Participating shops in our circuit include:

New in the Shop
Mini Pumpkins
We love this little wallhanging from Cluck Cluck Sew, a mini version of her original! It's perfect for Halloween, but you can leave it up throughout the Fall! The finished quilt measures 23 1/2 x 19" and the kit, which includes the pattern, is available for $24.95.

Call of the Wild Panel - Aspen
This lone eagle is another digital print from Hoffman from the Call of the Wild series. It's stunning, and can be enhanced as a larger quilt with a few blocks or borders. The panel, which measures 44", is available for $17.49/panel.

Cabin Rules Panel
This is another panel which would make a great cabin quilt for your own place or to give to those friends who let you stay in theirs. A few blocks surrounding it, and you have the perfect quilt for in front of a fire. Colors include shades of brown, beige, tan, and green. It's a cotton print, and the panel measures 24"x 44". It's available for $8.95/panel.

LeMoyne Star Table Runner Class
Eight-pointed stars can be tricky for quilters to piece. But Deb Tucker makes it so easy! We're offering a class to learn the technique on Saturday, September 30 from 10:30 to 3:30 p.m. The class fee is $30 and includes the pattern. To sign up, call the shop at (316) 652-9599.
