So the local quilt shop to me, Red Rooster Quilts, is having a tent sale today and tomorrow. They are selling all their quilt and quilt tops tops and had them displayed along the fence. It is just a beautiful site.
I bought nothing. How crazy is that? I am trying very hard not to buy things I don’t specifically need to complete something. Although that rarely stops me. Since I am in the shop a lot because it is about two miles form what I work, I had already seen most of the stuff they were selling at the tent sale in the store. It had been discounted for a while. Nothing called to me, so I just picked up my free bi-weekly quilt block and wandered up and down viewing the quilts/quilt tops.
Just wanted to share the beautiful photos and make sure any of my local Columbus friends were aware that there was a Quilting Tent Sale. Have a great weekend!
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.
