On the Quilt Shop Tour, we also shopped for our friend, who was working at Quilt Ventura. She gave us a rule of thumb: jewel-tone batiks. Of course, once she hands us her money, anything can happen. I keep threatening to buy her only beige, but she knows I'm teasing.
The theme for the shop hop this year was "Buzzing Along the Central Coast," and here is our friend, in her bee costume, looking very happy with our semi-surprise purchases this year.
And yes, we are already talking about next year's run!
