Because I decided to make my Judy Niemeyer Desert Sky quilt larger than the pattern I used at the NQA class, I needed more batiks. DUH, right?
I really wanted to go to a LQS and pet some batiks to make sure I liked them. Quilt shops are not local here. So I had to order online. The pattern is written to use fat quarters. Shops didn't sell fat quarters of chosen fabrics, only packets they had made up. I needed high contrast, 6 of lights and 6 darks. I was running into difficulty.
I saw beautiful batiks at Canton Village Quiltworks, so I sent an email asking if they could accommodate me. Jackie responded that they did not cut fat quarters to order, because they would have an odd packet left. However she worked with me, and they picked out beautifully contrasting batiks for me and sent them off.
Such fast--lightning-fast, service. Here in two days! I'm so impressed!
Aren't they awesome?? Now I can't wait to get working with them. And to praise Canton Village Quiltworks.
