Our newest “Rainy Day” fabrics have shipped to a Quilt Store near you!
This past Summer we were able to visit Moda and got some behind the scenes photos of the warehouse process. I thought this might be a nice change from all the standard photos of fabric bundles …
But we have to have at least one of those!!
When the fabric arrives in the warehouse, it’s on giant rolls …
That have to be folded, measured …
And rolled onto the cardboard bolts …
It’s a fascinating process to watch!
A specified amount of yardage is saved for the designers to their make sample quilts …
And for the salespersons to show their customers …
The precuts are an entirely different story that we won’t get into today!
Ever hear of that old saying “It takes a village”? Well that truly describes the process of getting fabrics out the door and to your local Quilt Shop.
Our visit wasn’t all work! We happened to be at the warehouse during an open house for the shop owners and got to participate in some of the fun. There was a caricature artist and I couldn’t resist having my portrait done.
The hardest part for me was sitting still and I had to make sure the artist included a picture of my dog from my phone.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a different perspective and just a small at part of the process getting “Rainy Day” to you.
So start looking for “Rainy Day” at your favorite local or online Quilt Shop and think about all the steps it takes to build that bolt!
If you need some additional inspiration we have all new patterns that go with the group.
They’re available for download via PayPal on our website.
Enjoy “Rainy Day”!
