2011 Pumpkin Patch Shop Hop!

Posted by guildcrafters on June 23, 2011

PASSPORTS CAN NOW BE PURCHASED AT ANY PARTICIPATING STORE FOR $5. We’ll be posting teasers of the shop hop quilt soon!

The 2011 Pumpkin Patch Run will take place:

Thursday, October 13, Friday, October 14, and Saturday, October 15, 2011

Scheduled specifically for the Beautiful Michigan Fall Colors, just another bonus for the ride!

SHOP HOP INFORMATION – More details on passport.

Check with your local stores about bus rides, leave the fun to us!

Passports will be $5.00.  The passport will provide each participant entrance into 7 Quilt Stores for a 3 day extravaganza of rewards.

Every store will provide each customer with a gift upon entrance.

Every store will provide a 20% storewide sale on fabrics cut from the bolt.

Every store will have additional specials, sales or goodies for passport holders only, inquire at each store for their rewards.

Every store will provide a portion of the original design 2011 progressive quilt.

FREE acrylic charm templates will be given to every passport holder by each store while they last.

This year’s quilt will be a simplistic and serene landscape. It shows a wonderful and rich night sky blue background with three different yellow stars and a moon.  It also has three different pine tree designs in shades of greens that scatter across the bottom.  With the exception of the moon, it is pieced with straight line sewing, and can be increased in size with additional blocks and/or optional borders. Border kits, border fabrics, binding and backings can be purchased at any of the seven stores during the hop at the 20% discount.  There are a total of eight kits (two will be available at Sew What in Wyandotte and one will be available at each of the other six stores).

This year, because we are included detailed color picture pages of the pattern, it will only be available in the fabric kits for the quilt.  When you see how easy the visuals make it to cut and sew the quilt, you will know it was worth it.  The kits will only be $7 at each store, a great low price for a wonderful quilt with patterns.  The cozy quilt can easily be customized for that perfect cabin quilt, for nature lovers, picnics, a manly man or just a concert in the park.  The quilt and additional border ideas will be submitted for your viewing by the individual stores as they are finished.

2010 Pumpkin Patch Shop Hop Progressive Quilt

Posted by guildcrafters on July 11, 2010

We have news about the 2010 Pumpkin Patch Shop Hop progressive quilt.

This year, the quilt has SEVEN different options. At each of the eight stores, Pumpkin Patch shop hoppers can purchase batik fat color sets in pre-selected gorgeous fall colors. Then you’ll be able to decide which of the seven different quilt designs you’d like to make. At one store, you’ll get the basic cutting and piecing directions. ALL of the quilts start out with cutting three inch strips.  All the strips are sewn together in the same way, and the first step of cutting is also the same for ALL the quilts. Then it’s a matter of arrangement of strip pieced triangles. The remaining seven stores will each have a different quilt pattern that uses the basic elements in a different way.

Here is the Guildcrafters’ version of the quilt:

Here’s a close-up of the quilt:
