Stash Report

As the year closed I put in one more order for fabric.  I told myself I wasn’t back on my fabric diet until the new year hit…and even that has a little exception.  I have two gift certificates to use!!

My order was to Quilted Twins.

My kids who got the pillowcases with the puppy print fabric liked the fabric so I checked to see if they had more and they did…that’s what prompted my order.  This is what I got….

This is for pillowcases.  I wanted to have some on hand if I need a quick something.  Do you all do that to?  Buy something so you have it “just in case”.  Living rural like we do, I can imagine forgetting a birthday party for one of the childcare kids and there be nothing to gift.  I could easily whip up a pillowcase.  It makes me not worry if I have something on hand.


I also bought this fabric….
I should have said no to it.  But I did buy it.  It is an ABC print fabric and I adore ABC fabric.  Well I have some fabric that matches it and …I couldn’t say no.Quilted Twins is so cheap.  I do have to say that I am a little disappointed in the cut.  See how the bottom row of letters is cut off?  They are unusable as is.  Worse than that, it ruins the whole panel if I don’t have all the letters.  UGH.  I wonder if this is a fabric that should have had a “panel” or “set of letters” option when ordering.  It’s one of those things that if I was in the store, I would have noticed it and got the whole set by adding a little more yardage to the order.  I did get enough that there are two sets of letters and that’s enough so I really don’t have anything to complain about.

That’s all I have for you today.  I’m heading towards the sewing machine.  I don’t have the latest clue done and would to accomplish that by tomorrow.

    I bet if you let Quilted Twins know, they would send you a better cut! They have great quality at inexpensive prices.

    I agree that you should call/contact them about the poor cut. There is a reason fabric is printed that way, so you can use it! You have 2 rows of blocks you cannot use except as scrap.

    Happy Sunday!

    Wow! Now that is service from Quilted Twins. I, too, am on a fabric buying moratorium, but I spend time nearly every day gazing at the lovely panels at QT! I am afraid if I order, I won’t be able to stop at just one. They would make wonderful comfort quilts, but because I never accept pay for a quilt, I can’t let myself start making that kind of purchases.
    I’ll keep watching at thrift stores, but haven’t much hope of finding panels there. LOL
    Well done Quilted Twins for taking care of Jo’s problem before she even made an official complaint!!
    Hugs and smiles!

    I have found their website on my phone a little hard to find what I want. I ordered a bundle for Frolic from them and wanted to get more of one of the greens so I could use a constant, but I couldn’t find it. I do like their fabrics.

    In addition, I’ve been looking for black and white fabrics to go in a quilt I’m making. I want certain fabrics to be meaningful – like theater masks, dancing, cheerleading, birds, etc – and have been unable to find them in black and white (not quilting twins, just in general)

    I don’t have the last two clues done yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up.

    Hurray for Quilted Twins. Last winter I was fortunate enough to get to visit their store. Such fun! I was on a mission to find some batiks to use for my grandson’s confirmation quilt. The employees are just great. I still remember the kind lady who cut my fabrics, Jessica. My husband sat on a chair, waited patiently and had a nice visit with a man from Maine!

    I love stores where the people care about their customers. Thank you quilts twins for catching Jo’s problem and fixing it.
