I have fabric in…This time around it’s all good…all for projects that we’re finishing.
I’ve told you before and I’ll say it again, and again, and again. I love Whittles Fabrics. Kelli and I needed a backing for our quilt that we’re making with Kim Diehl fabrics. We didn’t want to pay full price if we didn’t have to so I when to Whittles on line. YEP…they had Kim Diehl fabric. The even better news was that it was only $7.50 a yard!!
It’s the bottom piece.
When ordering I ended up writing a note in the comment section saying that I needed a light blue fabric that would look good with my Celtic Solstice. The I put a link to the blog showing a picture of my quilt. Then I asked if they might have anything in the store that would work with it.
I got an email back saying yes..they did have a fabric. Then they sent me a picture of the print. I thought it would work fine for the outside border and binding. Best news yet, that was only $4.50 a yard. SCORE!!
This made me so happy. I didn’t have to leave my home to shop which right now, I have no time for. I didn’t have to go from store to store searching for the right fabric either. It’s exactly what I needed. Don’t get me wrong, check out brick and mortar stores is always fun…sometimes, I just don’t have time though. Whittles has a flat rate $5 shipping charge…sometimes over the holidays they wave that. I sign up for the newsletter so I know when that is and then typically buy a couple backing pieces of fabric.
All in all…Whittles is a great on line buying option for fabric. They combine quality fabric, great prices and good customer service.
