Remember last year when I was driving on a middle school field trip and found Sweet Home Quilt Shop?
I drove again for the same trip this year and decided to plan out my route a little better instead of just winging it. Sweet Home is closed on Mondays so I couldn't go back today, but I knew there was another shop called Patrick's not far off I-20. Sadly, they don't have a web presence that I can find, but they do participate in the Greater Atlanta Shop Hop every year, so you can grab the address and hours from that site if you're in the area.
Instead of having to spend two hours in the car with seven teenagers on my own, my mom decided to ride along with me so we could shop together. Score! A day with my momma!

Then we hit the road for Covington.
Patrick's is a feed and seed general store, not just a quilt shop. They sell everything from candy to boots, and bulbs to motor oil.
I was pretty good and didn't spend too much. I did buy a few yards of neutrals, which are noticeably absent from my stash. I also got a fat quarter of red floral that I need for a group quilt. Interestingly, I have lots of floral and plenty of red, but NO red floral. Huh.
Hope you had some quilty goodness in your day today!
