I'm a quilter , with one daughter, and two granddaughters. I'm so proud of all three beautiful young women! I married my High School Sweetheart five years ago! My life is now authentic and lived to the fullest. My passion is quilting, quilting and more quilting. I am active in charity quilting. Did I say, I LOVE quilting?? I have eight amazing brothers and sisters and life is good!!!
I order fabric on line, have done for years. I can honestly say, I've never really had any problems! This time though ...oh boy, Did I screw up?????? I spent a week in Lancaster Pa at the beginning of last month and could have found the fabric there...but NO! Not me!!! I had to wait till I got home and order it online!!!!! It's the background fabric for my Pies and Tarts......since the quilt is scrappy polka dots...I thought I would get a white background with some kind of quiet dot on it! Good Plan eh??? Went to my favorite On Line shop....Over the Rainbow and Laura had Riley Blake fabric on special that week.....so I ordered Alpine Fabrics and Riley Blake Designs Rainy Days and Mondays 9100 Spots/white $7.99 /yard so I ordered 4 yards! Well I received it Friday and the fabric is wonderful, it is white and it does have dots and it has amazing large swirls allover, the only thing.....it looks way too "Muddy" with my crisp polka dots!!!! Now this is totally my fault because many times I've checked with Laura at OTR first if I wasn't sure of a fabric, but NO, NOT ME!!! Geez!!!! Now what to do?? I have lots of kona cottoon white but I think it is a little too heavy for handpiecing a lot of little curves!!! I guess I'll have to head into my little town and get another 4 yards of something that will work!!! See, I want to print some of these Babies off, and have them all ready to go on a little Florida trip we're taking at the end of the week!!!
