This week I received the first quarterly installment of the Fig Tree Club from The Fat Quarter Shop. I fell in love with the Cobble Stones Quilt when I saw it and had to have it! It's going to be a gift for someone special in my life. Woke up this morning wanting to start cutting it right away!
I wasn't going to join this club, but after talking with a friend about it and then seeing this quilt, I could resist no longer. Wow, am I ever glad I did! Fig Tree has always designed awesome fabric, and the Fig Tree Club is an ideal way for me to enjoy their fabric and make four beautiful projects a year!
I have to say here that I am constantly visiting quilt shops both in person and online. Although I buy from many shops, I keep going back to The Fat Quarter Shop for several reasons. They are the most consistent quilt shop with whom I have ever dealt. By that I mean consistently fast shipping, wonderful customer service, incredible packaging, and good prices. Consistent across the board, and have been for all the years I've been a customer. I first found them years ago when I was looking for an older piece of Robyn Pandolph fabric. At that time they had a special button just for that designer. I was so excited to find what I was looking for, and I think I bought out their entire inventory of the older lines! Yep, that was me!
Only one time in all the years of dealing with them did I find a problem - in a kit packaged by a fabric manufacturer. It was short one small piece of fabric. I emailed the Fat Quarter Shop, and within two days an envelope with that piece of fabric was sitting on my doorstep. I was blown away by their prompt attention and quick resolve. Having just had a two-week battle with another online shop over a totally incorrect order and their refusal to correct the matter, this was so refreshing. It was at that point that I decided The Fat Quarter Shop would be my main source for fabric, and I have never wavered from that decision. The Fat Quarter Shop has their finger on the pulse of quilting, and always carry the latest and best there is to offer. One-stop shopping!!
I bought almost all of my Christmas presents last year from The Fat Quarter Shop. They gift wrapped everything and shipped right to my friends! I didn't have to go to the mall, not once!! It was perfect for me, and I will do that again every year from now on!
I'm delighted with my Fig Tree Club package! February is a table topper project, April/May another quilt, and July/August a home decor project. I haven't done home-dec in years, but I'm looking forward to that! (As long as a zipper isn't involved!)
Every single package from The Fat Quarter Shop is like opening a present! And I chuckled out loud when I saw the little note on the envelope! That's what it's all about!
