I went to the 12th annual Wasatch Front Shop Hop on June 13th and 15th. 13 Quilt Shops along the Wasatch Front participated in this event. I went to the southernmost stores on Wednesday with my friend, Patti and I went to the northern stores on Friday with my sister, my daughter, my mom and 4 of my nieces. Each store gave away a free quilt block pattern and had games to play and sales and their version of a quilt they made for shop hop on display. The theme this year was "Those Were the Days". Each store decorated their shop around a classic tv show. I loved "Gunsmoke" in Lehi, "I Love Lucy" in Springville, "Brady Bunch" in Logan and "Let's Make a Deal' in Brigham City. The other stores were fun but these were my favorites. You also receive a passport at the first store you attend and you get it stamped at each store. If you hit every store you put your name on it and turn it in to be eligible to win really nice prizes. Here are some of my favorite quilts from the shop hop.

While we were in Logan we had to go get some Aggie Ice Cream at the Dairy Science Building...it's the best ice cream ever!!!!
We also went to Maddox's for lunch near Brigham City in Perry. They have the best light and fluffy rolls and raspberry butter. Everything there is homemade and very yummy! It's at the top of my list of favorite places to eat.
Here's a great recipe that's simple to make and you don't need to turn your oven on in the middle of the hot summer.
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained lettuce, shredded cheese,
1 cup salsa sliced radishes, diced
1 T. taco seasoning tomatoes, sliced green onions
In a skillet that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook chicken until juices run clear. Add beans, salsa and taco seasoning; heat through. Spoon the chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Garnish with toppings of your choice. Makes 6 servings.
My mom loaned this book to me to read. I thought it was really good. It moves through four generations of strong women who each worked for a cause they felt was worthy. Though Waters Roar by Lynn Austin is a historically based inspirational fiction novel. I believe I will have to read more written by this same author.
