You might remember that I was working on the Quiltville Unity Sew Along.
On Thursday I got completely caught up and am now to this point.
Well as I was finishing up and putting the last little narrow border on, I checked the 1 1/2″ scrap bucket but there was nothing- no width of fabric strips…so I went to my fabric. UGH. I was pretty much out of white based neutrals except for one piece. Oh my.
If I didn’t get some light (not tannish) based neutrals, I was in trouble. Seriously, there really were none. I had already raided everything there was left to raid. I really needed more.
As is, the top is only around 42″…so there is a lot more quilt left to be made. Lots of background print has been used so I really thought I better get more fabric. It was time for me to find a place to order some fabric from.
In my area the best place for batiks is Forest Mills Quilt Shop near Postville. I know the gals pretty good. The quilt shop is based out of one of the gals’ homes so I emailed her late that evening. I sent a picture of what I was working on and asked what she had for fabric.
I didn’t expect a reply until the next day but a few minutes later I got an email with these pictures….
So I shopped. I picked what I wanted and sent an email back saying what to cut.
My fabric went out in the mail that morning and the package came the next day. YAHOO!!
I’m restocked!! It was a great way to shop. Being the gals know me they just sent the receipt as a bill along with a self addressed stamped envelope. I’m sure if anyone else would order they would have to do credit card. The whole process was easy and very painless.
I can’t thank Carolyn enough. She was sweet, fast and right on with the fabric suggestions she picked.
If you need Carolyn to help you out, HERE is a link to their shop. You can find their email in the contact section. Just drop her an email with pictures of what you need and I’m sure she’ll help you out. The gals are widely known for their batik selection, farm related fabric, wildlife prints and panels. The think they are mostly known for is their great service which they have proved to me time and time again. THANKS ladies….you really helped me out in a pinch.
