#1 Prints Charming in Fulton, MD. They had kits with different fabrics in several color ways so you could pick what your fish will be. I chose autumn colors.
#2 Spring Water Design in Columbia, MD. This shop also had 3 color ways for their row. They sold fat quarter bundles of each type. The row they had made in 30s prints was cute but too light. So I chose their original color way.
#3 Cottonseed Glory in Annapolis, MD. I have seen Cottonseed Glory at quilt shows for years and shopped there but I had never been to their shop in Annapolis! It was very cute and PACKED with fabric and patterns everywhere. I bought several items along with the kit for their adorable row of sailboats.
#4 Bears Paw Fabrics in Towson, MD. Getting to this shop was a bit scary. I went through a tunnel and paid a toll and drove in the crazy Baltimore beltway traffic. The yellow row with cute flowers in pots was a must have --otherwise I wouldn't have driven way up there in that traffic! Nice shop and yes they had a kit! Yay.
#5 Ellicott City Sew Vac in Ellicott City, MD. Along with the row and kit, I found several other neat things in this shop. Although I enjoyed shopping there I probably won't go back since it's 45 miles from home.
#6 Patches in Mt Airy, MD. I shop here from time to time so I'm familiar with this adorable shop. I was tired by the time I stopped there so I just bought the kit and headed home.
But I wasn't too tired to start on the adorable sail boats from Cottonseed Glory! Tomorrow I'm staying home to sew some of the fun things I bought.
