2015 Quilting Shop Hops in Tennessee

There are two quilting shop hops in the East Tennessee this June 4 to June 13 (2015) – The East Tennessee Shop Hop and the Whistlestop Shop Hop.  They are both during the same couple weeks and span a large distance. The shops are as far north as Jonesborough TN and as far south as Chattanooga (218 miles apart) not counting the farthest west Little Blessings in Crossville, another 58 miles west.   

East Tennessee Quilt Shop Hop is June 4 – 13 2015.

Each quilt shop will have a free pattern and will offer a $5 fabric pack for a block including theme fabric and a unique barn printed block.  Each shop is featuring a different barn that is located on the Appalachian Quilt Trail in Tennessee. The shops are coordinating their fabric this year so a quilt can be made from all the barn blocks.   Official website Here are a few of the barn blocks:

Cherry Pit Barn Block Mountain Stitches Barn Block Ginas Barn Block
Tennessee Quilts Barn Block red barn Midsouth Sewing Barn Block

Additionally, Sue Jones designed a pattern available for purchase during  the shop hop that has a more uniform way to use the barn blocks in a quilt if you don’t  like a sampler look of the different block designs from each shop.
