I'm leaving for Kansas City on Wednesday to attend Spring Quilt Market. I'm going to look for new notions and fabric. I'm hoping to make available a variety of wonderful dots on the Piece O' Cake website.
My question to you is, if I were to find a few wonderful large prints, prints that I myself want and will use, who of you might be interested in them? For example, this amazing print by Brandon Mably for Rowan…
Or this luscious print by Heather Bailey for Free Spirit…
Both of these are pieces that I bought at a quilt show recently and they are waiting, in my stash, to be used. I will either use them in applique or on the back of a quilt but they would also be fun in a pieced quilt.
I know that when I poll the quilters in my lectures, most say that they don't buy this sort of print. But surely there are some of you who would if you could just find them. Or who would happily let someone else find a few cool prints for you.
I've considered starting a yard of the month club – although knowing me it might be the yard every-other-month club. If you think you'd sign up for something like that, let me know in a comment. If I get enough 'yeses' I'll buy some big prints along with the dots.
FYI – did you notice the twitter links on the blog, over there in the column on the right? Christopher taught me (again) how to tweet and use Instagram. Im planning to send fun photos from market.
If you sign up to follow me on Twitter, know that I am not going to bombard you with tweets. If I manage more than 2-3 a week, I'll be doing good. That said, there will be more from market.
