Atlanta Shop Hop Day Two

It's a week later and I still have many photos from Shop Hop to share. Don't want you to miss visiting the other great shops we visited. Friday was a day to run errands. My circle  was enlarged slightly to visit the two quilt shops closest to my home. Intown Quilters is located in Decatur, Georgia. Intown was a coffee house, one of my favorite places.  This is the shop for lovers of brights, batiks and "modern" fabrics. There is an extensive collection of 1930's fabrics that I have a hard time resisting.
This fabulous quilt is an upcoming class called "Hot Flashes." 

The shop has an abundance of patterns for clothing, bags, children's styles.

The shop closest to my home is Patchwork Cottage in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Patchwork Cottage morphed into a haunted house.
Beware of nurse Sandy, rotary blade accidents are her specialty.

Looks like more fun. Too bad I only had one day to do shops in that area with Pat Wys and Gene in February. :(
