Look what the postal person brought today! It is fabrics to finish the long-neglected BOM set from 2009!
When I subscribed to the BOM, I didn't order the finishing kit. I figured once I had the blocks done, I'd figure out how I wanted to set them and order yardage. Well, was I in for a surprise! I knew exactly how I wanted to set them, and then dear Pam sent me the photograph of her finished quilt and the setting instructions -- and the set was precisely what I had in my brain!
Different fabrics, but the same design.
This is Pam's quilt -- isn't it gorgeous? I'll be using browns where she red and green lattice and border; I'm after a slightly less Christmasy look.
Well, the fabric isn't as readily available as some, and I spent some time Googling around and ended up at Piecework Fabrics. They had a huge selection of Peace on Earth. When I phoned to place my order, the lovely lady there put me down on the counter very gently while she checked each bolt to be sure there was still enough. I was impressed.
And I was impressed again today when the package of fabrics came. Look how nicely they've done them up. Squint a little, the photo glare won't be so obvious. I'll surely shop with these folks again. And perhaps you will want to pay them a visit. No affiliation, yadda yadda, just a super satisfied customer!
This particular post may strike you as a bit disorganized. It does me, too. Oh, well.
