Join the West Central Region for Quilt Minnesota’s 15th Annual Shop Hop
July 30th – August 21st, 2021

On Friday, the start of the hop, pick up a shop hop passport at the first shop you visit. As you travel the state, each shop will stamp your passport and give you a free 5” fabric square from this years exclusive fabric coordinates along with a pattern for an 8” finished quilt block, no purchase necessary.

Continue visiting any and all participating shops to fill up your passport! ‘You make it what it is – do as much or as little of the hop as you choose’. May we suggest traveling with a loved-one, family or friends, plan a couple day trips, jump on a regional bus and enjoy the inspiration you’ll find while visiting Minnesota’s Finest Quilt Shops!

Each year we feature an exclusive fabric line; shops work very hard to create and design projects using the exclusive fabrics. Fabrics may be pre-ordered from participating shops. Fabric will be released from shops the first day of the hop.

Participating Shops send a sample of their 8” finished quilt block to one central location. All of these blocks are assembled into our annual Quilt Minnesota Quilt. The quilt makes its début during the shop hop at one of the participating shops (this info is posted on the prize page). This quilt is a snap-shot of all the participating shops and their abundant creativity.

Many of our participating shops also offer Shop Hop Merchandise that has the same look as our exclusive fabrics.

Watch for Regional Bus Trips in the area you wish to visit! As they are planned, information will be listed on the website. Get your friends together, enjoy the beautiful state of Minnesota and let someone else do the driving!

As our way of saying thank you for shop hopping with us we are offering the following prizes:
