I am Such a Slacker on Free Quilt Block Day

As I have mentioned in the past, Red Rooster  (Dublin, Ohio) quilt shop gives a free quilt block every two weeks.  There are thirty total that will complete a wall Hanging Quilt.  It is super cute and has a lot of Orange, which I love.  They are total geniuses for doing this.   These are about 6” blocks, so they are giving you maybe a dollars’ worth of fabric.  But, I am going into their store and spending money every two weeks.  So that dollar they are spending they have already made back more times than I care to admit.  I always liked the shop, but now I have a very specific reason to go every two weeks (which I would not normally do unless I specifically needed something.  Random visits cost money) and collect my block and whatever else tickles my fancy (the problem).  The other part of the issue is that my Day job as Nerd Whisperer keeps me about two miles from the shop.  So, when I have had my fill of the nerd squad I go to relax and wander around their store (probably not the best option for my wallet, despite the free block).

So, why am I slacker?  Well, I didn’t buy anything today when I went to get my block (I should probably see a doctor) but when I was checking out, the lovely lady at the counter asked me if I was up to date on my block creations.  As she handed me block #15, I had to admit that I just finished block #10.  Seriously they are 6 inch blocks.  I am such a slacker.

And the winner of the give away is…….

Thanks to everyone that entered my charm pack contest.  I did the non nerd version of a drawing.  Basically put everyone’s name in a bowl and then drew out a name.

These beautiful charm packs go to one of my email followers.

Congratulations to Lynn Parker.

Charm Packs to give away and Show my appreciation

I have been truly amazed at how much enjoyment and satisfaction I get from my blog.  It makes me feel like I am surrounded by like minded friends who all love the same thing. I managed to get over 200 followers and more than 7000 views.   So, to say thank you, I am giving away 2 charm packs.  They are Soho calico’s.  I love the colors.  Lots of teals and greens.  I figured that 2 charm packs can easily be turned into something awesome.  I have recently started a “Zipper Quilt” with two of my favorite charm packs.  I am sure I will show some photos as soon as I have a bit more to show.

Even though I spend my days at work as a “Nerd Whisperer”.  I am going to do this the Non-scientific or non nerdy way.  Just leave me a comment with your first name and name of a favorite quilt that you made.  You have until the last day of April to comment and then on May 1st, I will put everyone’s name in a bowl and have someone from my house draw the lucky winner.  I will notify you all of the winner.  Best of luck to everyone.
