I am SO glad Fat Quarter Shop wraps its fabric in plastic before mailing! I had been eagerly awaiting this fabric to be released, and then I had super anxiously awaiting my order once the fabric became available. My heart was in my throat as I opened this package...

All the way through.

Whatever had ruined the outside of the package soaked through to the inside. My heart stopped.


But the jewel tones on the inside were completely safe. Most of the fabric I order comes packaged in tissue paper. I'm so glad Fat Quarter Shop spends a bit extra making sure the fabric will be safe during transport!

  1. Uggg that package looks rather nasty there, my ocd would burn that quick lol but the fabric looks very colorful indeed

    1. I wasn't quite sure how to dispose of the packaging, Pat, because I didn't know what I was disposing!

  2. Eeeewww! Glad your fat quarters weren't ruined!

  3. Oh, oh, oh, what an absolutely gorgeous quilt block!

    And whew! Maybe plastic isn't such a bad thing after all. :)

    1. Thank you, Sue!

      You know, I never gave a second thought to how my fabric is packaged until this happened. Now I wonder if perhaps I should rethink how I package my Etsy stuff... I would hate for this to happen to any of my creations I send out... !!!!!
