I <3 Wholesale!

24 Oct

Yesterday Lizze and I went to the wholesale fabric show in Renton. You know how she likes to back all of her quilts in Minkee? Well, maybe you don’t know that. Minkee is the softest, most comforting fabric on this planet. This show could not have come at a better time, because she was nearly out.  A lot of the vendors that are normally there were not because of it being so close to quilt market. I can’t wait for the spring show when everyone will be there!

Lizze ordered 5 bolts of Minkee yesterday. That should be enough to back many, many quilts. We also stopped by and said hello to the ladies at the Clothworks booth. We were amazed because at their booth they had little bags set out on the table. We asked what they were. Quilt kits! They also had fat quarter bundles! With no minimum purchase! It was so exciting.

We both bought a quilt kit and I got two fat quarter bundles. Now, about 3 years ago our family bought a camper. Ever since then I have been wanting to make a quilt for it. I had a difficult time finding just the right “camping” themed fabric. The little bundles I found are perfect. And I got enough to make a quilt that will cover our entire bed.

Adorable camping themed fabrics

So, I’d have to say that yesterday was a pretty fantastic day. As if I didn’t have enough projects already… But I’m finally going to spend some time making a few things for myself. I can’t wait until next summer when our family gets to go camping again with our lovely new quilt.
