Yesterday was possibly the best Monday I've ever had.  I met with a couple of wonderful ladies at Fabri-Quilt in North Kansas City, Missouri.  They contacted me a while back and wanted to "pick my brain".  I got to chat with them about projects, blogs, the KC Modern Quilt Guild, and their business.  I was also given a tour of their huge space and got to see a LOT of awesome fabric.  If any shop owners are out there reading my blog, I think you should check out some of the new stuff Fabri-Quilt has coming out.  I'm in love with a lot of the fabric they sell. 

Sadly, only 2 shops (as far as I can tell) in my area carry Fabri-Quilt fabrics:
  • Cornerstone Fabric in Smithville, MO
  • Missouri River Quilt Company in Weston, MO
If you don't live in the Kansas City area, go here to see if there is a retailer in your area. 

They sent me home with some goodies to play with.  How cool is that?  I love goodies!  2 fat quarter packs, a tote bag, and a big chunk of some white sateen quilt backing (not pictured).

Tote Bag
Isn't this tote bag adorable?  It's super sturdy, too!  Want your own?  Go here.

Fat Quarter 01
This is the Antique Treasures fat quarter pack they gave me.  It's available from Fabri-Quilt here.

Fat Quarter 02
This is the Spice of Life fat quarter pack available here from Fabri-Quilt.

I'm not sure how much I can tell you about what we discussed, but I think there is a Quilt Market for me in the near future.  :)

Also, be on the lookout for some of my patterns here.  I'm not exactly sure what kind of time frame we're talking, but be watching.... there will surely be some good stuff!

In other news:
Jason and I also had our offer on a house accepted.  If all goes well, we should close in the middle of next month.  Yippee!  I can't wait to make the change.  I'm so ready to move from our current place.

Wow! Lots of excitement in this post! Can't wait to hear more.

I am loving those fabrics... I wish I had a line to hang clothes on. Might have to get on that! I have room in my back yard, but live on a corner and I'm not sure what the neighbors would think. :) Must put up a higher fence!

Can't wait to see what you have in store for those fabrics. They're yummy.

I actually don't have a clothesline either. I live in an apartment (for at least the next month!), thus I just tie kite string between two trees. It is kind of a pain to do everytime I want to photograph something on a clothesline, but it does the trick.

The house we put an offer in on has the two posts to put up a permanent line. I'm psyched!
