$100 Quilt Shop Challenge Video – at Gotham Quilts in NYC!


This is the quilters kind of challenge video – a quilt shop challenge!

Last weekend I had a fabulous time in New York City with my friend Alicia (who blogs at Travels with the Crew).

While we were there, I invited her to a $100 Quilt Shop Challenge at the famous Gotham Quilts in midtown Manhattan!

Make sure you watch the video below and tell us who you think won.


Alicia is my favorite expert in all things NYC. We stayed at a fabulous hotel (at a great price), ate delicious food (she introduced me to Jacob’s Pickles), and went to the iconic broadway show Hamilton!

If you want to have as much fun as us, check out her blog post The Ultimate Guide To NYC For First Timers or The Ultimate Guide To New York City At Christmas.

But I know you want to see our Quilt Shop Challenge Video…


The rules of our quilt shop challenge were simple – see who could shop for the best project for $100 or less. This was my first visit to Gotham Quilts, so you can imagine how much fun this was.

Our super suspenseful (just kidding) and exciting Quilt Shop Challenge at Gotham Quilts in NYC should play automatically in the video player on this page. If the video won’t play here on my blog, you can see it on my YouTube channel too.



Plus the bundle that I picked out (it’s practically a quilt kit) is the SewCanShe giveaway this week! Make sure you click over to enter because these fabrics and pattern are worth over $100 (I went over by $5, oops!). If you are a little late to this week’s giveaway, no worries – I have a new one each week.

And now you get to decide who won the quilt shop challenge.

Was it me with my modern take on the Vintage Lace Quilt Pattern


Or Alicia with her idea for a Christmas themed Lloyd and Llola Quilt?

Update: I sewed that quilt top for Alicia when I was on vacation at the beach… see it here.

Tell us in the comments… we both want to be the winner!
