Here's how the shop hop works each year:

There are 9 quilt shops on our hop. ( Shop Hop stores and their websites. ) Pick up a "Trail Ticket" at the first shop you visit. Have your trail ticket stamped at each shop and turn it in at the last shop. See map on locations page.

A completed ticket will get your name entered for the Grand Prize as well as 9 other great prizes.

The Bluebonnet Patchwork Trail also features:
Individual Drawings-
Register at each store for their individual drawings- 10 $25.00 gift certificates per store. You do not have to visit all 9 stores to be eligible for these individual store drawings. Just be sure to register at each store that you do visit!
Give Aways in each Shop-
A fat quarter to all "hoppers".
A Block pattern to the Official Shop Hop Quilt. This year each shop will have a different block represented in each quilt. All the shops will finish their quilt in their own way. Be sure to check out each shop's interpretation of the quilt blocks and fabric.
And of course, refreshments!
Here's what's behind the shop hop quilts-

We are already planning the shop hop quilts and hope that you will be as excited about them as we are. We had a great response to the block kits that we all sold last year, so we are doing it again. The overall theme of the quilts will be Women of Texas. The block kits will include fabric, instructions for the blocks and a bit of history about the woman for whom each block was selected.  Make plans to get all of the kits and visit each of the shops to see what we've done with them.
