(Finally got back and linked the images to the Websites.)
Sorry, I don’t have time for a real post but I wanted to put up these pictures of the participating shop hop stores.
Thank you to all the quilt shops. I loved getting to see all the stores, quilts, and scorching hot North Carolina!
Anyway, I have to be out of town for a couple of days, so I will add the links for these stores as well as the two I didn’t photograph when I get back.
I’m a little optimistic about this trip, so wish me luck in advance. Thanks!

Here is the drawing file for Diamonds. dark and light. I cut squares that were five & seven/eighths to finish at ten inches. It would have worked just as well to cut the squares at six inches to take advantage of the width of the ruler.
The squares are coming together slowly. It always takes me longer that I think it will to assemble all the squares. This quilt will finish at 80×80 (approx.)

More attempts at the freehand flowers from the pajama quilter.
I started drawing target circles for my flowers. That helps me keep the flowers bigger because they had been getting really small. (look at the ones on the right in this photo) I also tried a couple of variations in the flower centers, still trying to get the flowers to be bigger with better petals. Some of them came out pretty good,and some of them were not so good. (sigh)That splotch under the particularly bad flower is where my needle deposited a blob of oily linty grunge.

First attempt practicing some free hand flowers I learned from the Pajama Quilter.
