Look at what Libby sent!!!! She already has her nine patches done...and they arrived at my door yesterday. They are just so pretty, and make me so excited about getting everyone's blocks here and sorted and sent out to everyone! Libby...also sent chocolate! I have already sampled this yummy chocolate...it is so good! I have never seen it before...the packaging says it is from New England...it is delicious. Friendship is sweet! I am counting it in my weight watchers points...which makes it totally legal.
I am sending these fat quarters from my local quilt shop or some just like them to Libby...she is the first of the 3 inch nine patches to make it here. There are many more prizes to come however for you nine patchers....

I received the most wonderful winnings from Nola...she is generously sharing her stash from the 1980's...and these fabrics are just beautiful! And packaged so prettily...I just hate to open them up and use them! They are in the category of "oh too pretty to use!" Thank you, Nola!


I will be out of pocket for a few days...work, work, work! I hope each of you has a wonderful weekend!!

Hugs, Julie

Hi Julie
I thought we were only using 2 fabrics for the nine patches. Can you verify please. Libby blocks look lovely. Debbie
