Inside look!

Would you like an inside peek?
Check out Quilter's Paradise - the leader in  
laser-cut appliqué and pre-cut pieced kits. 
 
There are stacks & stacks of fabric. Some is already cut to size & ready to have shapes precisely cut.


Some is just waiting for its turn.
 
This amazing machine is larger than a king size bed. The computer tells it what shapes to cut, the fabric is loaded (up to 100 layers of fabric) with a thin plastic sheet on top & bottom, then it cuts. You can see Richard holding the blade that cuts through all those layers.


After cutting, the fabric moves aside & then next stack is ready to be cut. Watch the action!

Here you see 6 layers cut into Wedding Ring pieces.

Quick!

We even ran into a friend lending a hand, assembling kits.





 
Quilter's Paradise cuts squares, strips, triangles, & all kinds of pre cut fabric pieces to save us time & energy!



Our next stop is Hoffman Fabrics of California.
It was a heavenly visit to their incredible warehouse.


 Have you ever wondered how the fabric gets onto those bolts? There are about 6 wrapping machines going all day long, wrapping fabric from tubes onto bolts just for us!
