Our feature quilt this year is designed by Amanda Castor of Material Girl Quilts. The 72" square quilt named "Circle City Sampler" includes fun solid fabrics in shades of aqua, peach and honeydew set in a white background. Each shop will offer a portion of the pattern with kits that when added together create the complete quilt top. 

When you purchase the passport it provides an opportunity to track your trek and enter to win gift certificates from each of the shops. This year we are including a super cute branded souvenir mug with your purchase. Quantity of the mugs are limited, so don't delay when purchasing your passport. As an added bonus, after the shop hop ends you will have a coupon from each shop to use on your next visit.
