We're doing another Quilt Challenge! In 2017 we started with our first challenge - each shop on the hop featured a unique element. Hoppers collected those elements and had to use them in a quilt.

New for 2018, we've added a theme for your quilts:

All the finished quilts will travel as a group to each of the participating shops. Shop customers and visitors were able to vote for their favorite quilt.

The quilts final destination will be the Alden Lane Nursery Quilt Show where the winner will be revealed!
