Have you discovered MassDrop?

I just joined the group purchasing a cones of Superior Thread's King Tut on Massdrop and thought I'd mention it here for those that may not yet have discovered this source.

And then I found what could be the perfect border/backing fabric for the scrappy Briar Patch quilt I blogged about yesterday–a wide black and white backing fabric by Windham covered with color names  ... and decided I needed that, too.


It seems a perfect match for Rainbow Scraps projects.

On Massdrop, you can vote in polls about what you'd like to see offered and join group purchases with prices that drop as more buyers opt in.  In the past, I have purchased fat quarter bundles and Quilter's Dream wool batting (which is now being offered again, if you're interested) and some non-quilty things ... though I confess it is the quilting category items that tend to grab my attention.

I am not associated in any way (except as a happy customer), but do think it's a great concept and an interesting site worth checking out.

That backing will be perfect! I like Massdrop too.

Thanks! I had never heard of Massdrop. I need some wool batting and wasn't sure were to get it - so this really worked for me. I just ordered some from them. :-) I do think the color name fabric is really the perfect fabric for your quilt.

Thanks for the heads up, Sophie.

I used Massdrop to get a great deal on Aurifil thread and an embroidery kit. A satisfied customer.

Patty the Quilt Lady's Jimmy Buffett quilt hung in the Massdrop booth at QuiltCon. I had never heard of it before.

You reminded me I want to sign up!

I've been waiting for them to do Aurifil again - 322 people are asking for it, so I hope they will do it soon. I missed the holder last time it was sold alone, though, so I'm tempted to do this one, too.
