The technique they use is pretty amazing, and the end product is absolutely awe-inspiring every time.

That store was Quilt Passions, which was just a few minutes away from our hotel room. Needless to say, we visited it at least 3 times while we were there.
They recently changed their name from Fabric Gift Shoppe, because everyone thought it was just a gift shop rather than a quilt/fabric store, so it might be hard to find the new shop name on maps. Anyways, I loved all the shops we visited, but this one I loved just a little bit more. Not only did it have the most fabric out of the ones we visited, but it had an entire WALL of metallic fabric! METALLIC! That’s one of my absolute favorite fabric types, right next to Batiks.
I can never find a lot at one store, though, unless it’s a fabric monster like Fabric Depot in Portland, OR. This one had more than I’d ever seen in one place, and it also had a different entire wall full of Batiks. So yeah, this one was at the top of my list =P
Here's the fabric I got here, which is what I decided on for my quilt:
And the last one we went to was a little shop in Waimea called Topstitch.

This is where we found out about the Kona shop hop, and she had a lot of info on all the other shops and such. I didn’t get anything for me at that one, just a polka dot fat quarter pack for my mom (I know, you could find that anywhere, but I owed her and she liked the fabric, so there!)
