September was a busy month all across the state of Texas for quilters. 90 Shops participated in the first ever Texas Shop Hop. This was not a feat for the weak at heart. The hop was divided into 8 regions including the back roads through the Hill Country to the big cities of Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and many others. The talented and creative shop owners pulled out all the stops transforming their shops into giant Texas displays. Big Tex himself would have been proud. Several of the stores sent in pictures of their Quilt Across Texas displays. Some of those you will see here. We also sent some of our secret shoppers out to “shop.” We had several people volunteering to do this task….. Imagine that! We wanted to share with you the contest winners from each of the eight regions. Check out the winners along with the entire list of shops.
