Row Hop, Day 3

The third day of row-hopping here in the DFW greater metroplex.   This trip took me on a 250 or so mile drive around the metroplex.

First up was Common Threads in Waxahachie.  I picked up the free pattern, two neutrals, and the variegated piece at the right.   The varigated piece is for a project that I'm working on that will be shown on my block in September.
The second shop for the day was Corner Square Quilts in Cedar Hill.  They are a smaller shop that specializes in batik.  I used scraps for the notes, and left off the words since this quilt will either be donated or a gift.   No fabric was bought here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
The third shop I went to was Quilt Among Friends in Arlington.  I picked up the free row pattern, two remnants, a black tonal and two nail files.
Two lovely pieces by Northcott Fabrics in their Shimmer line followed me home at Peggy's Quilt Studio.  The row has already been made up and is in my row by row quilt.
Next stop was at Sew Fabricated, and the row pattern was the only thing I picked up at the store.
Cabbage Rose Quilts in Fort Worth was the next stop in my trek around the metroplex.  I love the new line that looks like cork, and picked up 4 different ones for use in a project for my house.
Must Love Fabrics in Grapevine was on the list next.   I picked up the pattern for a friend.  Black tonals and a couple of remnants came home with me.
Quilt Country in Lewisville was next up.  Fabrics for multiple projects came home with me.   And I picked up the row kit for a friend.  and the free pattern for me.

Material Girl Quilt Shop in Denton was my last stop for the day.  I picked up the pattern for a friend.
The next day I went by The Old Craft Store to pick up the row kit for a friend.  A couple of tonals, a background piece and the free pattern came home with me.
Final stop was by Fabric Fanatics to pick up another copy of the pattern for a friend.  2 black tonal batiks and a sale one with kitties came home with me.

1. for safety during my travels

Such cute rows, all of them! You definitely found some black tonals on this trip around the city. I went to three shops today, bought nothing in one, and bought FQs for Miss R in the others, plus and interesting fabric I'll blog about later. This is fun, and I wish I'd been with you for the Dallas shops!
