I have a friend who has been searching for a fabric for several years ... once long ago, she had made a quilted item using this certain red poinsettia cloth, and would like to replicate it but cannot match her remnant to a new fabric.
Often, quilters will buy only as much as they need for a designated project, because we all have to live within our means ... You know the old saying borrowed from woodworkers: Measure Twice Cut Once ... Rick once made a plaque of that for quilters, and added the line Or Buy Extra Just In Case!
I've been able to buy dozens of bolts of Quilting Treasures' former lines of fabric at a reduced wholesale price, and you now that means you will have a reduced retail price ... because when I get a sale you get a sale. I don't really worry about whether a fabric print is this years, last years or from a decade ago, which is why warehouse shopping works for Quilters' Quarters.
I'll post photos of those gorgeous 'curiously left behind' bolts when they arrive later this week ,.. until then, come on in and see some of the fabrics that I'll soon have to be moving into my own storage areas to make room for the new ones ... my fabrics are ALL on sale at 20% off while they last ~ unless you are using them for a charity project ... then, they are 50% off!
Quilters' Quarters has also just acquired several bolts of Ann Lainhart's beautiful fabrics that lend themselves so well to her fussy-cut patterns, and though I can't discount her bolts, I can tell you that I'm not taking a commission for selling them, so they are also priced reasonably. That's another old saying that's worth remembering: For those who have been shared with much, ' paying it forward ' is expected (well, I paraphrased that, because I don't know who originally began that similar saying and don't want to plagiarize ... or, because I can't remember the exact words. 😉 Here are some photos of Ann's lovelies ... all are 44" wide bolts of quilt quality cotton fabrics:
|Prints, solids, florals, abstracts ...|
and they all work together beautifully!
|Uniquely blended solids and prints, |
some with metallics, and some without
|Silver and Gold metallic medallions|
|Three different colorways of medallion prints |
|hummingbirds and favored blossoms in ten inch blocks|
|Large and small butterflies and florals|
|cardinals and beautiful backgrounds|
|Cats and dogs galore~|
