FQS- Fat Quarter Shop, they had a 40% off International shipping a few weeks ago and I took advantage of the savings and purchased 2 Flat Rate Envelopes of Fabric. Plus as a bonus I used my Gift Certificate that I bought during their Mother's Day promo of 20% off, So I only "spent" $40 for these packages.
Some yardage of American Made Brand Solids:
I got Aqua, Dark Aqua, Dark Turquoise, White, Light Cream, Gray and Light Navy.
Let's talk about these solids, they have a nice hand softer thank Kona, but not as soft as AGF. But here is the thing, I think the color is like painted on, I'm not an expert or anything, but you know when you buy colored paper and if you tear it some products have color all the way through and some papers are white on the inside when you tear them, that is the way AMB is, it is almost textural in the color cause not all of the fibers absorbed the same amount of color this was most apparent in the Dark Aqua, it gives it a nice color and really looks like water. There were a few little white fluffs and after moving them, there wasn't any color underneath. So what do you think this means?
|the best picture I could get, of the white underneath a loose thread.|
I already started playing with some of them, the AMB aqua and dark aqua went into the Aurifil July block of the month.
And Erin's Sew At Home Mummy Classic Meets Modern July Block, I followed her lead on this also, but used Kona Red and Kona Robin Egg.
