Fabric ordered

I ordered the fabric for the Cherry House Quilts Quilt Along. With the weather though, it is going to take a while to get from Ohio to Iowa. That's OK, because all I have to do is cut before next Monday. Still don't have my Kona colour card, but a kind participant listed all the golds for me on the Flickr discussion board. Quilters are so nice!

I ordered Cheddar, Corn Yellow, Daffodil, Ochre and Sunflower. I wonder if they will come labeled. One lady in the Flickr group suggested making one's own colour card. Just snipping a bit and accumulating colours along the way. The one thing that I loved the most was the price. For the quilt top and binding, it was only $11.69. Got to love Kona Cotton.

Continuing on about Kona Cottons, there was a fabric swap last month. You sent in 12 Kona Cotton fat quarters and you were sent back 12 Kona Cotton fat quarters. The kicker though was you had to pay a handling fee of $6. I was a bit appalled. That was in addition to including a postage paid envelope to have your 12 fat quarters mailed to you. I know it is work to sort through everything, get things mailed out, etc., but I still thought it was a bit much.

This has been a bit of a rambling post. I apologize. It has been a long day already and my thoughts are scattered.

  1. I ordered mine last week, end of the week, and am still waiting on it as well. I'm hoping the weather doesn't delay it too much, I'm anxious to get started!
