Some people say quilting and alcohol don't mix...

I disagree! First of all, people say you shouldn't use the "heavy machinery" of a sewing machine while drinking wine, but it's worked for me for years. :) Anyway, that's not what this post is about. 4th of July weekend I had a long drive back to Seattle from Spokane and did some research ahead of time about where to shop for fabric along the way. Awesomely, the tiny center of Ritzville, WA has a quilt shop/liquor store combo. I had no need for booze at that point, but it was kind of a funny and unique thing. And I was so happy to find fabric there that is tough to find for a great price to boot. So, here's to you, Wildflowers Quit Shop Liquor Store. Cheers!

  2. Lol, is the liquor store to give the man in your life something to do while you fabric shop in peace without him saying "are you done yet" every couple of minutes?! In Australia a hardware store that is handy to a quilt shop has saved many of us being nagged by impatient partners :).

  6. I am behind this idea 100%! Love it! And love your flying geese top as well - the scale of your blocks is fantastic - it totally modernizes it!

  7. I love it! They should offer a 'drink of the day' to go along with a 'block of the day'

  8. In Florida there is one mixed with a pharmacy. Jefe asked me what I needed at the pharmacy for $75 when he balanced the checkbook. I think if I opened a store I would call it 'The Grocery.'
