Stash Report be damned!

Yesterday, I had more than one package in the mail!

Earlier in the year, the Paris in the Fall by This and That was revealed and Amy and I fell in love! We chatted about this quilt almost everyday and searched the web to see how much it would cost to buy the kit. We decided that while we would love to do the BOM through the Fat Quarter Shop, it would just end up being way too expensive. If we couldn't find it for less, then we would just let it go and watch blogland while other bloggers made the blocks and the quilt.

One day, I just to be searching for the quilt BOM and I found Craft Town Fabrics where they had several options for purchasing the BOM. One was to order the entire kit - patterns, blocks and finishing kit - with just one shipping cost. WOW!!! I sent the link to Amy and asked her to look at it and make sure that I was reading the site correctly and she agreed that it looked like we would save at least $100 ordering the BOM as a group. WOO HOO!! We both signed up immediately!

Well, it wasn't supposed to ship until November! Amy and I got emails on Tuesday that the kit was shipped and it was in my mailbox on Wednesday. Talk about service!!!

Here's the picture of the whole kit.

And here is all of the fabric that I am going to have to add to my stash report this week.

At least it is gorgeous! So much prettier in person! I'm going to have to start cutting the fabric and putting the blocks in a new BOM binder! :)

Ooh, thanks for sharing! I have been searching for the perfect BOM kit to start my very first quilt and this just might do it. I also saw it on the Fat Quarter Shop and passed because of the price. It is sooo pretty. Congrats!

I don't want to know how much the kit was if you managed to save $100 by ordering it all at one time:) It looks luscious though. Have fun getting it all bindered up and ready to sew.

When you are done can I have the pattern? Just kidding, mostly, but those are beautiful blocks. I can see why you couldn't resist!
