Quilting away…

on my No Prints Allowed challenge.

I really shouldn’t say this out loud, but I think I might get the quilting finished today.  If so, that should avoid the last minute Wednesday binding scenario!

I bought the binding fabric yesterday.  I already had some that I planned to use, but wasn’t excited about.  Even though part of my brain said it was the right binding, the other part was telling me it wasn’t.  As I was quilting, I had an idea to go in a different direction so I went and got the fabric.  I am SO happy that one of my LQS’s, Ann Arbor Sewing Center, recently started carrying the full line of Kona cotton solids.  I have a color card, so it was just wonderful to make a decision about which color I wanted and then go and get it.  I was home with the fabric in less than an hour.  Of course, sometimes they are out of a certain color, but it is better than having to deal with the mail when you are working toward a deadline.

I also heard recently that the shop where the Brighton Modern Quilters meet, Creative Quilt Kits, is adding all the Kona cotton solids too!  Even better!  Brighton isn’t as close to me, but it is so great to know they are there.  The Brighton Modern Quilters are meeting tomorrow so I’ll get to see how they are displaying the solids.

Do any of your LQS’s carry solids or do you order online?

    Kathy at pink chalk carries all the Konas, so I order from her.

    I use to live in Ann Arbor and am glad you have more shops now. I'll have to visit your guild when I come through to see my parents.

    unfortunately, I have to order on line … but fortunately where I order from (Pink Chalk Fabrics) is only a ferry ride away, which usually means if I order in the morning, I can have it by the next day. This is lovely … very soft colors!

    I'm very jealous that your LQS carries a large selection (all!) the Kona solids. I think that JoAnn's carries more than my LQS. :s
