The 2011 Northern Virginia/Maryland Quilter's Quest is Coming!

September 05, 2011

The Northern Virginia/Maryland quilters shop hop is coming up in just two months -- November 9-13.  Shop owners and staff from the ten participating shops have been working hard to nail down the details and create a fun, exciting few days for local quilters.

Jinny Beyer designed the 2011 Quilter's Quest quilt but we've added a twist this year: each shop will be using their own fabrics to interpret the design to suit their shop style.

The Jinny Beyer Studio quilt variation is featured here and features easy-to-piece star blocks and some gorgeous appliqué (designed by staffer, Diane Kirkhart.)

Those on the quest can pick up one part of the pattern from each of the ten shops.  The Studio will have kits of all the fabric, complete with additional finishing instructions specific to our version of the quilt. The pattern is only available to those who visit the shops in person, but we are developing some projects with a similar look and feel for our "away" customers!

This year's quest promises lots of fun, prizes and surprises.

Shops will be open during the Quest as follows:
Wednesday to Saturday, 9:00 - 6:00
Sunday, 12:00-4:00
