Do you remember a bit ago I wrote a blog post about “the best package ever”? Well fast forward a few days…package #2 came. I don’t know for positive because the packages came anonymously, but I think the same blog reader sent them.
They were addressed the same… both have projects and leftovers that are similar. Everything about this package reminded me of the other package. Whoever it is that sent them, please know, that I really appreciate it so much and you’ve sparked a renewed a new excitement in me and I love it!!
Here are the goodies all laid out on the table.
Check out this UFO. Does anyone know what the pattern might be? I don’t know if I’d finish it exactly like the original but I might. I’m super curious to know.
I’ve always wanted to make a house quilt. This might be as close as I get. HA!
There were a few scraps in the mix. I have a project perfect for these.
There were some nine-patch blocks. I have a stack of nine patches upstairs in my orphan pile. I’m hoping these might be the same size. We’ll see. So fun. I love nine patches.
There were…some miscellaneous half-square triangles.
I told you in Monday’s post that there were some square in a square blocks with the label “S’mores”.
As I told you on Monday I looked it up and found this…It’s a Jo Morton pattern called S’mores. HERE is a link to the pattern.
In the process of looking around for the pattern, I discovered there was a ruler to make the block easier and more precise.
I ended up going on Amazon and ordering the Square in a Square Ruler. It looks like this…
They have a ruler that makes blocks that are 4″ and 8″. They have another that has 3″ and 6″. I got the 4″ and 8″. You can find it HERE.
I plan to pick this project up and finish it at some point. Join me if you want!!
There were these four pieces that I tristed and turned into this star design. I am curious wondering if they are possibly corners to the outer border of a quilt or if they are intended to be sewn together like this.
Getting packages like this always have me curious.
Check this project out. It was in the package. Oh my, BEAUTIFUL!!
There is sashing there to sew it all together…again, does anyone know if this is a pattern. I’m so curious because there were also the pieced borders you see in the picture below. They have me wondering if they go to this quilt.
There was a stack of bow tie blocks, some sewn together, with a notation on them.
I believe it’s the measurements to cut out more blocks.
There was a stack of half-square triangles sewn together in blocks. How fun! There were extra half-square triangles that needed to be sewn together too.
I’m hoping some of the half-square triangles I have laying around are the same size. I think I am going to set this by my machine and work on this when I don’t have something else immediate that I’m working on. I have no idea how I’ll set the blocks or what I’ll do with them. I do know that I have a couple of events in the next eight months or so that need a donation quilt so this will likely work for one of them. We’ll see how much time I get as I really have a stack of family quilts that need to get done too.
I’m so incredibly thrilled to have gotten this package. I appreciate all the mail that comes my way. Most of it I pass on and share. This package, I’ve hung on to most of it as it is all my style. I don’t sew with them often but reproduction fabrics are my favorite. As I said, it’s really sparked some life into my quilting and I’m so thankful for that. Whoever you are that sent this my way…THANKS SO MUCH!!
If anyone can help with some info on what pattern a couple of those UFOs might be, please leave a comment in the comment section and help me out.
