My Black Friday Shopping

You need to understand I hate shopping, crowds, and early mornings. But when I received an email from one of my favorite quilt shops that they were having a Black Friday Sale of 40% off I really gave this a lot of thought. Ok so I decided I could drive 1 & 1/2 hours one way for 40% off and I didn't even have to get up early. This shop doesn't open up until 10AM. My husband went with me and was I surprised when we pulled into the parking lot. Only 4 cars in the parking lot at 10AM. I knew what I wanted so in 15 minutes I had purchased my fabric and was ready to leave. I think this is a first for me to only be in a quilt shop 15 minutes. I am going to do a online New Year's Eve mystery and I need some fabric to go with the jelly roll. The beige will be the background fabric and the red is the pop color.

The next stop was lunch and then home. I can handle this kind of Black Friday shopping.

Here is what I have been working on this week. This back for the I Spy baby quilt.

I am working on this quilt for a Christmas gift. I had lots of squares left from another quilt like this so I decide to make another one. I just need to put the borders on it. The outside border will be purple like the cornerstones.

Before I go back to working on this quilt I think I will stop over at Sarah's to see what everyone else is up to this week-end.



  1. By the look of those fabrics, it's going to be a beautiful quilt! I like your current project, too:)

  2. I love the back of your Eye Spy quilt.

  3. I love a pieced back and that is going to be adorable on that gorgeous I spy quilt! Man, 15 hours one way, you're a brave and dedicated woman!!
