Just How Does 17 Yards Of Fabric Get Stuffed Into a Mailer?

I had ordered some fabric from Hawthorn Threads last week because I contacted my so now totally famous sister in law for some of her fabrics that might work in a One Block Wonder quilt.  She actually had to locate someone that still had this line in their inventory!  Fortunately, Hawthorn Threads had the two prints I wanted to work with…DSCF4229

I ordered 5 fabrics, 2 of the fabrics were lengths of 5 and 3/4 yards and then 2 yards of the coordinates.  So something like 17 yards of fabric!  I’m looking at this envelope and thinking there’s no way this could be the entire order?DSCF4230

And there it is, I guess it is deceiving, all yardage accounted for.  Of course I’ve never made a one block wonder quilt so I have no idea if these will work or not but I’m going to experiment.  I stopped off at Quilt In Joy last Saturday and signed up for a class in June.  I’m heading off to their annual quilting retreat this weekend and decided to opt out of the One Block Wonder class they were offering during the retreat…

I have to keep reminding myself that this is a year of FINISHES!!!  I bought Bari’s fabrics NOW because I KNOW I’ll never find them if I don’t get them while stores still have them!  So hopefully during the June class these will come out to play!

But aren’t these pretty?DSCF4231

And in case you are wondering, Hawthorn Threads was a breeze to order from!  I just love their site…go check them out (and I’m not even being paid to say that!)

Happy Sewing!
