Out of the blue today, I received a box in the mail from Joann C. in CA. What a surprise!! Inside was a really nice cut of puppy footprint fabric. over 4 yards worth. I need to look to be sure, but I think I have a top with puppies and dogs on it. Wouldn’t that be cute together! She also sent 5 beautiful quarantine tops that she made.

The first one is a 9 patch with rich, dark red fabric with various other prints to set it off. Love the pattern in the quilt. It is a nice size at 43 x 64.

The next one is a churn dash pattern, I think. The bright, cheery country prints in the top are stunning. It makes me want to get out the picnic basket and go for a picnic. It is 56 x 68.

The next quilt has tons of lovely prints in it. It makes you feel like spring and summer all rolled up into one. The red daisy border really sets it off. It is 64 x 77 and will make a wonderful Gaudian Ad Litem quilt for a foster child.

OMG!! The colors in this quilt a totally mind-blowing! The floral prints are eye-catching to say the least and I love the pattern she used to show off the fabrics. It is 48 x 67.

The last one is a sawtooth star quilt. It is so understated compared to the colors in the other tops. Love the colors and how the blue border brings out the blue in the blue pin dot background fabric. What a wonderful lap quilt at 51 x 61,

Thank you Joann for your creativity and generosity. Each is ever so very precious.”

Jo now writing.  WOW.  I LOVE that “picnic churn dash top”.  I think it’s fab…no onto my mail.

My mail was fun mail…I got this package from Valerie.

It was a mix of goodies…

This was fun.  It was a kit to make a mask from Hexies.  I would have kept it for myself but I’m hoping mask-wearing is going to ease.  It might be false hope but I passed the mask on.  I took a detour when writing this post to check out OneCommonThread.org.  They look to be a WONDERFUL organization that is working to empower women.  Please check them out HERE.

There were fabric goodies in the mix…

…as well as a cute gnome kit.

There were so many goodies…

…including this kit.  So fun!

…and this kit.  I’ve not seen anything like this before.

Tucked in the bottom was a pattern along with a nice note.  THANKS!!


It’s so nice to get mail that is happy mail.  Thanks so much.  Some of this will be going on a postage auction in the future.

Ray and I both feel so blessed!!

    I’m with Jo – that picnic churndash is a winner. It’s unusual with that skinnier bar of fabric. Most churn dash I’ve seen have the bar rectangle cut to half the half square triangle. And the extra block in the center is new add too. I’m inspired! All the quilts had a little something special. Great job!

    I’ve heard of the Uncommon Threads group. They do an amazing job teaching sewing skills in their communities. Well worth reading about them. Thanks for sharing that.

    Very pretty quilts. I especially like the bright fabric one with the stars. It is so fun and interesting to see oh many different patterns of quilts. Each one is so unique in its own way.

    Oh my, so many goodies. The quilts are delightful and will be bringing comfort to those who receive them. I have never seen the table top Fishers Seam Ripper before. That is a great product. Any chance you can post an Amazon link so those who want one can help support you? I have one waiting on my Amazon shopping list and would prefer to purchase it via your blog.
    Have a safe and wonderful week.
