Fat quarters & wide fabric sale NAYY

Howdy!
Once again Keepsake Quilting is offering 100 fat quarters for $99.99.
That's a dollar each, comes out to $4 a yard.
So of course I had to have some. Top quality fabric, all of it
from current or recent collections. It's "potluck", you get what they
choose. And they choose very well.
I've ordered these before & have always been very pleased. FedEx
dropped them on the front porch about 8:00 this morning. ;-)

Deal #2-- KQ's wide backing fabrics are on sale, good price;
good variety, going fast. I got the pink peacock, 104",
that 2.36 times as wide as regular (44" wide) fabric,
just a little over $4 per yard if it were 44" wide.
The 110" wide, divided by 44", comes to a little less than $4 per yd.
It's a good deal. And a relief to not piece the back.

I don't have any other connection to KQ, just a satisfied customer
who likes a good deal on good fabric.
R/Sandy-- with a big pile of freshly-laundered fat quarters
and a cool-ish breeze blowing outside

I love Keepsake Quilting. Sometimes when you order off the internet, you will see the message that it is backordered. I always call them, and see if that is correct. Several times they have told me there was plenty in stock, they took my order, and then all I had to do was wait!

Same here, Sherry. My packing slip says "backorder" on the fq pack, and there are the fqs looking right at me! Still says "backorder" on the online site where I check order status, and the package has been delivered; only one item is actually on backorder. Call or email and ask if they're in stock if you want this fq pack. Sometimes they don't sent that "order confirmation via email" but the order status shows it's being shipped.

thanks Sandy -- you got be off my duff to start on a Y2K triple irish chain made of the 2-1/2 inch squares (25 per person) and sig squares that we all swapped back in 1997 thru 2000. I was the only one on internet in Maine at the time so I did a LOT of swapping. I put the top together 4 or 5 years ago and now am just finishing up 2 sets of bunk bed quilts.
I just ordered the blue paisley wide backing fabric

I'm sort of around -- working very long hours - 45 > 60 hrs a week as a caregiver and doing some handquilting on the job during naptimes or when relatives take them out for a treat. It is really a great job as I work for an agency that likes to keep me happy so I get long term - not sick people -- just those who have hip problems and need a lot of PT daily.
This year I have fimished 2 pairs of bunk bed quilts - one set for my summer place and one set for ex-boyfriends' victorian fishing camp. also went to Aruba, and a cruise around the bottom of South America -- those were treats from current BF.
I renovated my summer place last year and now have to put in a road and septic system. So as I told the agency, I will be working forever to pay for it all. Fortunately, I am blessed with good health so I can do it -- when I retired in 2000 to backpack, I never thought I would be back at work this much. -- Life is surprising sometimes, but I find it exciting and fun.
I still do swaps, but not as many. Actually, I think I will sign up for a paper piecing swap with some French quilters.
I just started back reading the list and hope to keep up once a week.

Whether on the BBS group or here, I'm glad to see you anytime, Mim. And to read of your adventures, at home & abroad. ;-) Of course, it's a pleasure to aid & abet, especially in stash acquisition!
Cheers! R/Sandy

One vendor at PIQF had 108" wide backing, precut into 2 yard lengths. BBSwapper Bethe and I were scratching our heads -- are there really that many people who want a backing that's 72x108? Why not some 2.5 and 3 yard pieces to get 90x108 and 108x108? I'm still puzzled.

yes, I'm still very able to do almost everything I want to do -- I bought an electric chain saw on a 6 ft pole so I can cut branches and trim trees at the cottage -- now that I don't have the ex-BF who used to love to cut trees and mow the field. We argued over what he thought I should do with my place and stormed off in a hissy fit. It was a relief, really. I don't dare to use a 18" blade gasoline engine chainsaw with no one to call the rescue if something happens so I got the lighter, smaller one.
In Aruba and SA I can say with a smile that I was "too busy" for chocolate -- the beaches were wonderful -- but I did find a gorgeous piece of sheer silk that was blended stripes of blues, yellow/tans and greens that reflected the colors of the island. I made a shower curtain for the cottage so whenever I'm there it brings back memories. Ed was so funny -- he couldn't figure out why I wanted to go fabric shopping when I was on holiday

Welcome back. You sound like one busy lady, but that doesn't surprise me. I hope you can stick around for a while. Gen

Just a guess here. Buyer sees 108" backing in a precut length at a great price. (since it is so short it probably seems a good price) SHe doesn't pay attention and buys one or two. Her lady friend outdoes her by buying maybe one more than she did. The good price for an assumable good length starts it out and it goes from there. That is just a guess though from a not so average quilter. Taria

In article ,
Mim, are you on QuiltenFrance? I am! I didn't sign up for the paper piecing sister group, though, and don't plan to do the swap you mention, since I'm about to be a bit swamped with projects.

The thing is, it still seems a bit narrow. By the time you have the back 3" bigger than the front all the way around, you've only got 66" wide. Around here, most people make twins that are 72 - 75" wide. Mind you, I'm not saying that 72 x 108 isn't a nice option to have, but it's very silly to have that as the *only* size available. Someone wasn't thinking at that booth.

A UK single or twin bed is usually 36" across the mattress so 66" wide would be OK. I can never get the hang of US bed sizes as we use the same descriptions to mean different sizes over here. Must admit it does seem odd to have no choice at all.
