Moda Sale at Fat Quarter Shop

Kimberley at Fat Quarter Shop tweeted the other day that she had a huge Moda sale going on so I hopped on over there last night post haste.  I placed my order quickly whilst serving the kids their tea and, by the time tea had been cleared up, I had a shipping notification.  You cannot beat Fat Quarter Shop for their wonderful, speedy service.  I treated myself to one of these (French General Panier de Fleurs Wovens).



And some Basic Grey Curio yardage ( I confess I can't show you pictures of the Curio yardage as Kimberley had some bolt ends of my two favourite Curio prints and I cleared them out of both so the pictures have gone from the Fat Quarter Shop site).  But there are some other wonderful treats still waiting.  Like this Fat Quarter bundle of Etchings, one of my all time favourite lines with some beautiful Paris map and architecture prints.


This wonderful Fig Tree Butterscotch and Roses FQ bundle.  I am a big Fig Treet fan and have a wonderful union jack Fig Tree quilt to show you in the upcoming issue of Fat Quarterly...


Plus lots of great yardage including some wonderful grey and cream blenders from Bunny and Hill's Puttin' on the Ritz line which was used in the background of the Windmills and Trees quilt I finished at the weekend.  Sales like this are also great opportunities to stash affordable quilt backings. Pick 4-6 yards of a big bold print in the kinds of colours you like to make quilts in and, next time you finish a quilt, you'll have a wonderful backing ready and waiting.

  7. I admit that I do shop for the best prices. That being said, I absolutely love receiving fabric from Fat Quarter Shop. They really do ship super fast AND the packaging is the absolute best. It makes me so happy when I find what I'm looking for at Fat Quarter Shop!

  8. I have a question. When you order fabric from abroad do you have to pay any extra custom/tax charges on it? Fabric always looks a lot cheaper on U.S. sites certainly, but I was wondering if it really works out a lot cheapoer with high postage etc. I am quite new to sewing, thank you for your help. Love the blog, btw.
