From Korea

Something great has just arrived.  (The Fed Ex man told me this.  His wife is a quilter, so he should know.)  From Korea.  What could it be? Overnighted!  Really!


I grabbed the nearest thing I could find to get the box open.   
(This tool may be familiar to some of you.) 


Hmmmm.  My new fabrics have arrived!  SORBET GARDEN.  
These are the 5 yard cuts I get before the bolts come out.  

  
I can't seem to get them out fast enough.


Wow, look at all those great colors!  These are just yummy.


Here's a close up. 

I just love the soft grays in this line.  They are so pretty with these vibrant colors--really make them pop.

You are probably tired of hearing about my "Sorbet Garden" line.  But it takes a long time to go from drawings to finished fabric, and I have been keeping  you posted all along the way.  So it may seem like you have seen this fabric before, but this is the first REAL fabric we have seen.  Bolts of this line will start shipping to shops sometime in October.  Lets have a little contest and see who can spot it first in a quilt shop.  The winner gets a fat quarter bundle.  Here are the rules to the first official
Jillily Studio "I SPY"  game:


1.  Check often at your local quilt shop for "Sorbet Garden" by Jill Finley for Henry Glass Fabrics.
2.  Email me (jill@jillilystudio.com) a pic of you and the fabric to prove that it is really true.
3.  Post a comment on my blog (just on the most current post) telling all of us that you found the fabric.

It's that simple. 
And then you will need to check your mail box for the fat quarter bundle I will be sending you!
And of course, you will want to buy more fabric to go with your fat quarter bundle.

Now don't forget--Sorbet Garden.

Great fabric line! I'm not sure if it will make it all the way to Saskatchewan...but I plan on asking today! Maybe they will look into getting it!

Lovely fabric, I love the colours, but not much chance of me getting a picture with it unless you are sending some to France!

Looks absolutely lovely although there isn't much chance of seeing it in Australia for some time yet so I will keep an eye out for it in the on-shops I frequent.
