Spotted: Fabric Stacks and Mailers

>> Friday, January 7, 2011

Every month all over the world fabric is carefully picked out, compared, examined, then chopped up, stuffed in envelopes, and posted to locations from Australia to Canada, Europe to the United States.

It's sent with instructions that were carefully thought out, debated, agonized over, fretted upon,

All for making blocks that will be mailed back, ironed, placed, sewn, quilted and bound, washed,

Just for creating a quilt that will be admired, displayed, possibly hugged and petted, lovingly used and owned for years and years. All from a little stack of fabric.  Sent all over the world.

are those comments in Russian?

anyway, beautiful post. sending the bits of fabric and receiving art from other crafters all over the country and the world is exactly why i love virtual quilting bees. i feel like i should do a profile of my mail delivery person. wouldn't that be a funny theme for a post?
