Road Trip!

Back in high school and college, when someone hollered "road trip" and now today, when a quilt group suggests "road trip" I find that I have the same excited reaction - "Come on, let's go!!" I rarely refuse an excuse to hit up some fabric shops, and on Friday we visited five. I left my house at 7am and returned a full 12 hours later - totally exhausted, but very satisfied with our outing.

I bought a little something in every shop - one has to boost local economy, right? Above you can see my haul. I was actually shopping for only a couple of things - those needles and the thread. All the fabric and the book were purely impulse purchases. *smh*

Here are the shops we visited. All are in southeastern Ohio with the exception of Bolts and Quarters, which is just across the Ohio River in West Virginia.

All seven of the Frankfort Girls made this day fun; we needed two cars for traveling and Terry and Jan were kind enough to take on that additional responsibility of chauffeuring us. I can't think of a more wonderful group with whom to shop and sew; we share so many ideas and learn so much from one another.

Now by the looks of things, I have a propensity for precuts, and I had best be ramping up my sewing this summer to make something of all these pretties!

Hope you have a great day!
Happy Quilting, Friends!

  1. Nelsonville! My new favorite not-so-local-shop. My daughter will be at OU for a few years working on her Masters, so I see a lot of trips to the quilt shops around her in my future. What fun you gals had.
