Today’s Kona Bay newsletter trumpeted “The First Lady Wears Kona Bay!!" Kona Bay is a fabric manufacturer that sells exclusively to quilt stores, not chain fabric stores. The newsletter had a photo of Mrs. Obama wearing a full-skirted dress (designed by Tracy Feith) at a prayer breakfast. The fabric was from Kona Bay’s Emperor’s Collection. Perhaps the First Lady and designer Feith are just following my lead. I used some lovely quilt fabric called Imperial Garden by Michael Miller for a long skirt last year.
