I did get as much mail as usual in the last week. I’m not complaining…just saying that this post will be shorter than some of my typical mail posts.
Blog reader Elaine sent some beautiful tops. I found a finisher and these are already at her house. That was QUICK!
These are all great and closer to large lap-sized.
Rosie was doing her thing and really wanted to be involved it the taking of these pictures. I’m wondering if Elaine had a dog and the quilts had dog smells. Whatever it was, I couldn’t keep Rosie off of them.
Isn’t this one fun and BRIGHT??
I liked this batik one too. I never think to make elongated nine-patches like these.
I loved this colorful baby quilt. So cute.
Three boxes all came from the same blog reader. They all came anonymously but the writing on the address label was the same so I’m going out on a limb and saying they were from the same person.
This was the first box…lots of scraps…these will be pasted on to area quilters. I’m guessing lots of string quilts will get make with these.
Here is the second box…There was postage money included. I’ve sent out a lot of packages lately including the tops from the previous donation so postage money is a big blessing.
Here’s what was in the box…More wonderful scraps. I picked out six slivers of fabric to throw in my collection. The rest I am passing on.
People often write and say it must be like Christmas to me to get all the packages. In a way, it is but I keep very, very little. I am collecting 30s prints so I occasionally keep a few of them…same with calicos.
Check out these printed foundation fabrics. I haven’t seen these before… Continue reading
I wanted to share with you the goodies that have been coming to my mailbox. The first actually came to my email.
You might remember Eve as the lady in France that was working on teaching others to quilt.
Eve writes: “Thank you for relaying my request for our Charity quilts. I received a very generous donation from Jeanne. The fabrics are beautiful and they make my heart sing. We will start with 2 quilts: one queen size and one for kids.”
Wasn’t that a nice package to sent to Eve and her fellow quilters? THANKS, Jeanne for supporting them.
Ray got goodies too. He writes:
“Wanted to share a pic with you of the contents of a BIG USPS box that came in the mail today from Colleen M. In Falcon Heights, MN. All of the fabrics will come in handy for backs. Some of them have enough yardage that the same cut can be pieced for a large quilt. My continued gratitude to you and your readers for their never-ending support in creating beautiful community quilts.”
WOW. Thanks, Colleen.
I got two large boxes of things from Gloria. She was so sweet.
That was box #1. Filled with goodies including treats for Rosie. She LOVED it!! There was a present…I opened it!
Licorice. I’m sure it was meant for the childcare kids and I promise to share. But…did you know licorice is likely my favorite candy. I can’t eat just one though. I had two and then tucked them away before I ate three..and four. I love licorice.
The box had LOTS of quilt tops. Many were large so I’ll likely be passing them on to Cheryl or Lori.
Aren’t they pretty??
This one was extra long. I love the sashing. I’ll have to remember to try that in a quilt.
I love the colors that Gloria picked. They aren’t my typical picks as I’m pretty plain…but I really like them.
I was thrilled to see these next ones. I immediately called dibs on them. The local animal shelter groups always ask for quilt donations and I don’t always have time to complete tops and donate them. I am saving this top and will finish it for that benefit.
See? Continue reading
