    Can't stop looking at them!

    Just got my order from Connecting Threads. I got the Botanical Garden and the spring batiks collection fat quarter sets and also a bag kit. The fabric is so gorgeous I cant stop looking and petting them, not only that but they added a little extra of the batiks. I love them so much not sure if I ever want to cut them up! Anyone else ever feel like this?

    Yes, I bought every batik charm square that they had in Connecting Threads last year and then went back and bought some FQ and yardage. The fabric felt wonderful and looked fabulous so I am with you 1000%. They were just lovely.

    Isn't it wonderful that something so simple as beautiful fabric can bring you much pleasure. Image a quilt made with that fabric and the love that is woven in every cut & stitch.

    Being surrounded by quilt shops, I have never bought from Connecting Threads, though I enjoy their catalog and website and plan to when an opportunity arises. However, your pleasure in looking at the fabric is something I really understand. I've done the same thing, and sometimes keep fabrics quite a while before deciding what to do with it. Simple pleasures are the best and the craft of quilting provides us with so many!! We share your joy!

    I sometimes visit the quilt shop just to pet the fabric. I like to wander around and see what it new and what is on sale. I love it when someone is picking fabric for a quilt. Always like to see what someone else chooses! Fabric soothes the soul.

    Agree with QuilterCDN, they need to be "married" together and become "one." Then you'll have twice the joy.

    I was looking at the same line of fabrics. Aren't they beautiful! I love Connecting Threads. They are so easy to order from and delivery is always surprisingly fast. Enjoy your stuff.

    a few weeks ago I ordered from connecting threads for the first time. my DD loves batiks so ordered some fqs for her & some new quilting needles - ( broke my "no buy" rule - lol, but didn't count since it was a gift. The shipping was fast & the fabric was so luscious - she was in fabric heaven. I will buy from them again.
