I have been obsessed with Marimekko fabric for years. Months ago, Zack and I were at Crate and Barrel and I noticed Marimekko fabric draped from the ceiling. I asked what they did with it when they were done. They send it to the Crate and Barrel Outlets and sell it from there. Since we don’t have an outlet here I kind of dismissed it. Then came Christmas morning when I opened a present from my husband. Inside were 4 different Marimekko prints, 5 yards of each! He had called around to some outlet stores and found it! I was so shocked and surprised he had even remembered that trip to Crate and Barrel and the fabric! Now what to do with the coveted fabric?!
Yesterday was the big day we could finally register for QuiltCon workshops! It’s going to be a busy trip with three workshops. I’ll be taking Getting Your Curve On, Modern Improv and Textile Printing. Austin here I come! Now, if it wasn’t so far away….
One of my quilt blocks was on The Modern Quilt Guild Blog yesterday! It’s so fun seeing your work on other blogs. 🙂
