Extra Kona Solids Snuck into my Shopping Cart

Sunday Stash: Happy Mistake

When I placed the fabric order for the front of the Diamonds in the Deep baby quilt, I went ahead and filled up my shopping cart with more Kona solids until I got free shipping. I don’t see a point in ordering and paying twice as much for an order due to shipping, and I am always going to find uses for Kona solids. I ordered a yard each of 6 additional colors:

Holy Yardage, Batman!

One of these things is NOT like the others… I was really surprised by the size of the box that the fabric order arrived in. When I opened it up, it was quickly obvious why: instead of a 1 yard cut of Kona Snow, I was sent a 5.5 yard cut. WHAT?!?! Thank you, fabric gods, I will use this gift wisely.

    I love it when the fabric gods smile down on you like that!

  16. That is too funny. I did that when ordering from spoonflower once . It was an expensive mistake on my part… One that I somehow didn’t notice during checkout (I blame the screaming children in the background). But I did enjoy those extra panels to practice my quilting on. It was nice to not have that pang of fear when using fabric that I really love. Because I knew there were 3 more just like it on the shelf. :)))

  17. That is awesome! You can never have enough white :)

  18. Woohoo fabric Gods… they can bless us when we least expect it! Congrats!
