Amazing mail!!!

 Oh MY!!!  I received the most wonderful box in the mail!!  Inside?  Was this quilt top!!  Perfectly pieced and amazing!!
 A close up...
 And this quilt top!!  All of reproduction fabrics, it is wonderful!!
 and a close up of it!
 And this quilt top too!!!
 And ONE HUNDRED log cabin blocks!!!  Gorgeous, and so timely for Log Cabin Loonies!!!
 And applique pieces, all prepped and ready to stitch!  At this point, I just sat down and had a happy cry.  Can you even imagine?  Also, there were pre-cut square's and a pattern and lovely fabrics...just the pick-up I needed to get my creative juices flowing again!!  Thank you, Linda O.!!  Thank you!!!




 Do you have some forever projects?  this is one of mine...these are four inch basket blocks, and I make one every once in a while.    I have a zillion of these cut out...just give me time and patience, and I will someday have a basket quilt made of them!
 These are another forever project...these are all two inch bow tie blocks.  I make a dozen or so, then put them away, and then make another dozen some time later.  About 200 are in this pile.
Teeny!!!





I have had some problems with my e-mail! I would try and answer an e-mail, and it would just disappear!!  I think it is fixed now, but if you have commented and I have not replied?  That is why, and I apologize...please know I love your comments and friendship!!


So there you have it, folks!!  and I hope you have a wonderful day!!

WOW!!! Can we say JACKPOT! All so beautiful! Just curious..the 2nd quilt down, what size are those strips in the blocks? I THINK I'd like to do one like that! And I thought every quilter had forever projects (AKA UFO, right? LOL).

What an amazing box of goodies! A very generous gift which I am sure you will love completing and moving forward as quilty hugs. Love the little baskets and bow ties. I always have 4" crumb blocks and Bonnie Hunter Wonky Wishes stars on the go. Every now and then I make a quilt with them.

Wow! Best mail ever!
As for 'forever projects' - I sometimes suspect that ALL my projects are forever projects... 8)

That is the kind of mail you never expect and just sit in disbelief as it unfolds. Quilters are so generous, and you are one of the best examples of that!
Enjoy!! : )
