May is for Makers is all about supporting independent makers. I am probably stretching things a bit but I’m calling this fabric acquisition from Bernie of Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics a part of my May is for Makers acquisitions.
The Freefall QAL is moving right along (I do still have 6 blocks to piece but have made a small amount of progress on that… more later this week), and I found options for backing and binding the quilt from Bernie. I am currently thinking that the Hip to be Square will be the backing and the Rainbow on White will be the binding.
I really love the Rainbow on White print, and I contacted Bernie to see if she had more than just fat quarters in stock. She let me know that she only had 2 FQs remaining, so I bought what I could. To my delight, I actually received the fabric as a full 1/2 yard cut because Bernie knew I had been looking for yardage. Taking the time to talk with small shop owners is so beneficial for everyone in the end. Thanks for the fabulous customer service, Bernie!
