If you want to make a bricks quilt like this I found out there’s a great tutorial at Randi’s Road to Spring quilt-a-long.
The Shop Hop last week was fun. Each of the store’s picked a holiday/celebration as their theme. Our store’s was Father’s Day so I wore a white shirt with my 6-year-old’s clip on tie. I felt more like an Olive Garden waiter though.
The funniest part of the day: a gal (Hi Kim!!) comes in and says, “I’m here to meet Amy.” So I totally assume she’s there to meet Amy McClellan, the store owner, and send her in that direction. (I’m the employee that makes everything confusing at AQ – anytime anyone asks for “Amy” on the phone or in person, it’s pretty much always her they want, so I always defer.) Thirty seconds later, Kim comes back to me and says, “No! I’m here to meet YOU. I read your blog!” I felt like such a dork (this is not an abnormal feeling for me, so I wasn’t distressed) and after she gave me a noogie, we had a great chat. Kim, you are a hoot! And get this! Kim’s nice husband went WITH HER to a dozen or so quilt stores! What a man.
