I found (what I thought was) a great deal on some old fabric that I've desired to own for a long time.
Side note: You see on my Quilt Bucket List is "Quilting the Garden" by Blackbird Designs. If you've never seen it done... You really should. My friend Debbie Wick made it and taught it years before I was quilting. I'm hoping she is going to teach it again this fall. I LOVE this quilt. Debbie's quilt wins BlueRibbons by the way....
Continuing with the surprise... I happen to visit Miss Rosie's Quilt Co blog earlier this week and stumbled upon a "Stash Sale" ( something I've never, ever considered ;) Guess what? there it is... Carrie is letting go of a Fat Quarter Bundle of Chelsea Boutique by Blackbird Designs.... of which many pieces were used in the original "Quilting the Garden".... so i'm in right? I want that FQB.
I order it and within 3 days its on my door step...
Oh the joy!
But wait... Look what else is in the package.... There must be a mistake!
And that's not all... Even more in the package... Yardage of Chelsea boutique too!
I write Carrie and ask her if there has been a mistake....wanting to pay for the extra pieces...
The crazy lady writes back and said no mistake... She loves to surprise... Can you imagine?
So here is a shout out for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co... Carrie is a Gem!
Thanks Carrie for making my week.
