Okay readers…It’s my turn to ask you some questions. I need help and I’m hoping you all can be my helpers. I have three separate questions…
#1- One of my old childcare moms contacted me and ask me to make a bed-sized quilt for her son. She really liked this baby quilt she saw online and would like something similar. My question: Does anyone know of this fabric or fabric line that it came from? If you don’t know that, do you know of something similar? Their family farms and loves all things John Deere so she wants green, yellow, and tractors…she wants the black and white buffalo check too.
If you know of anywhere that has this fabric or something similar, please leave a note in the comments or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is question #2…
A blog reader vaguely said that Hobbs had a program for charity quilters to get batting free or at a greatly reduced cost for those who are doing charity quilting. Is this true? If it is, can anyone provide me with the details?
Someone sent me a link to Oklee Quilting Supply Incorporated in northern Minnesota. You can find a link to them HERE. They said that many Lutheran World Relief quilters get their batting from this company.
I checked them out. I found this…it is a roll of 60 yards of batting that is 60″ wide for $89.40. Shipping looked to be about $18 a roll.
My calculations say that quilters could make 36 quilts that are 60 x 60 with this batting. That means it would be about $3 per quilt for batting. WOW. That is cheap.
BUT the question is this….is the batting a good quality. Does anyone know? Has anyone used this batting?
They had different widths and it all seems reasonably priced but I want to know if it holds up.
If you can help with any answers to my questions, I’d so appreciate it!! Again, leave a comment or email me at email@example.com.
