Dear Miss Rosie

It all happened so innocently. That really does happen you know. You see, I saw these beautiful fat quarters at my Local Quilt Shop. There were three sitting together. As a matter of fact, if you want to see them together, I posted about them on Saturday.

I thought the fabrics were so beautiful and the ONE bolt that I did look at said "Sunkissed". So I just ASSUMED they ALL were Sunkissed, as all the bolts were displayed together.

So Saturday I write up my post, and send it out into blog land, only to have a very kind soul send me an email stating that the first fabric was NOT Sunkissed.

WHAT!!! Oh no!!! What is it! This GORGEOUS piece of fabric has to have a name! And I MUST find out what it is.

So yesterday, I went back to my Local Quilt Shop, because you see, I wanted MORE of this delicious fabric.

And then I saw it. It was YOU, Miss Rosie. How could I have made such an error. I feel so badly that I did not give YOU (and carrie) the well deserved credit for this GORGEOUS FABRIC. And it does have a name. It's FRESH PALETTE. Oh how appropriate. So fresh, so lovely, so... so.... GORGEOUS!

I am groveling now Miss Rosie. Can you (and carrie) ever forgive me for such a dastardly mistake? Carrie is such a giving, generous Quilt designer and I feel like such a heel not giving her (and you) the proper credit for this amazing fabric.

And one other question. Is it all right with you if I integrate your GORGEOUS fabric with a few of your friends??

One more little note. I went online to see if I could pull up a website, and it looks like this fabric is not readily available. I found it on lilybellsquilts esty and at my local Quilt Shop's online store.

Have a perfectly wonderful Quilting Day!

I loved the rose fabric on sight and went looking for it as "Sunkissed" with no luck. Off to see what I can find now... it's so beautiful!

Cute note to Miss Rosie - I can assure you that she and Carrie will forgive your faux pax. :-) Fresh Palette is a delightful line.

glad you could find it.
i'm looking for a fabric now that has been discontinued and anyone who has yardage of it is charging like 35 a yard~crazy. IMO that is MURDER LOL.
I mean, there's a demand, but that's ridiculous. glad i found your blog!

Carrie said...

Too too funny. Yes. To all of the above.

You're forgiven. You can definitely integrate. (I love Sunkissed too.) In fact, I love the group you've put together -- good job with that! (And just because they were all together at the LQS doesn't mean you don't get all the credit for recognizing how lovely the group was!)

I look forward to seeing what you make with your oh-so-pretty fat quarters. :)

Joslyn you are a doll. We all make mistakes...I make them all the time. I saw some fabric called, The Bees Knees, and thought it was Kaffe or Brandon's work....guess I need to go back to fabric school too :)

Hugs,
Kelly

I thought that was part of the line that I had not seen yet. Oh well, it is delicious.

Hello,

Best greetings, Johanna

GOOD GRIEF...these are all so so pretty.
Well, you've done it. I have been kicking around the idea of making a king size quilt for my bed and these fabrics made the decision much easier for me. :) I would LOVE to have such pretty fabrics. All with all things I attempt to do, I have to do it slowly...living on Social Security limits my buying power BIG TIME.
But, I can buy a little at a time...
I don't know how to make quilts very well so I will probably do a nine patch. I can handle those. I will have to quilt it on my mom's olden Singer and that always hurts. My arms hurt, my fingers hurt, my back hurts and my FEELINGS hurt. :)))
Thanks for the inspiration...

I'm not sure if my comment is going to post twice or not, but I love your fabric.

Love the Carrie Nelson fabric so much that I bought a "Fresh Palette" kit from the Fat Quarter Shop. All the fabrics in this collection are wonderful. The pattern is quite simple and measures 83 3/4 x 95 inches. Not sure if they have anymore kits but you could try. They may have some yardage.
