Geez! I wouldn't have had to pick all my own fabrics.....I could have just
ordered this! Hummm now that I look at the collection...I think I already
had a few of them. Maybe I actually saved some money and used up stash.
What a concept!
Great idea! It might catch on >g<
We'd have magazines queuing up for our services!

Oh you're nasty, nasty, nasty! DH was looking at it yesterday and was
wondering the same thing. He really likes it and would like to hang it.
Hummm I wonder how it would hang if I just spray starched it really well????
I actually thought that was a pretty shrewd move by equilter to grab a pic
from a magazine and put together a fabric packet! They must have had a lot
of requests. ORRRRRRRR! Do you think maybe Paul was watchng you all help
me and he thought they might have a good promotion item there?? Probably
Hi Kathy -
Your post was brought to my attention by a regular list member, so I
thought I should respond.
Whenever a quilt is run in a magazine, the editor often is required by
the publisher to have a source for a kit to run with the article. In
this case we were requested by the editor staff to provide this for
readers - it is not normally something that we do to be frank. They
sent us the photo a few months in advance so we could try to put
together a FQ packet with a similar feel.
If a magazine does not provide a source for fabrics, kit or something
similar they will receive lots of requests for a source. Listing a
source is considered a service to the readers. We couldn't possibly
duplicate the exact collection of batik scraps used, but we can put
together a similar group of fabrics to pump up someone's stash who
wants to recreate this beautiful quilt.
If you have any questions about this please do contact the editor
directly. You are also welcome to email me directly if you have any
