Southern Hills Shop Hop

Saturday my mom and I, along with a friend went on a shop hop to the Southern Black Hills. We hadn't been to any of the shops in a couple years, so it was fun to see each shop. The first shop was The Quilt Shop in Custer, SD. I found so many thing I couldn't leave there! I had seen the Sandy Gervais Thanksgiving line online, but hadn't seen it in any quilt shops until Sat. I picked up the panel and two coordinates.
I also found this fun Quilters panel. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it's super cute and I'm sure I'll find some way to use it.
I also picked up a box of Minkee 5" squares that I plan to use for a baby gift. I also found the Sewline pencil/tracing combo, some Aurifil thread, and the templates to make a Winding Ways quilt. It's on my list of quilts I plan to make next year.
Then it was on to Edgemont to Nuts & Bolts. It's in a very small town, but it's a great shop and there was so much to look at.
I picked up a fat quarter packed in a glass. We each got one and then went next door to the soda shop and each got an italian soda. I also picked up a t-shirt and postcards.
We continued on to Hot Springs to Heart Songs Quilts. It just opened last year, but I loved the outside!
I found a great panel for making a camping tent for a card table.
I also found a cool panel for a little boys race car quilt. I have a little boy in mind to make this quilt for, so it will probably get done quickly.
We had a fun day together and we all found some great things we don't have at our shop.
