The mail man came and so did an awesome box of fabric and goodies.
MJ in Michigan was thinking of me as she was cutting up fabric for a quilt. I had said I have a new love of neutral (or light colored) fabric. I really do. Often the lights are the unsung heroes in a scrappy quilt. I have been stepping back and appreciating neutrals in a whole new light. MJ seems to think they are dated fabrics but I love them….they don’t seem dated at all to me.
I believe it was Bonnie Hunter who said-fabric doesn’t have an expiration date. It’s a statement I have truly learned to adhere to. My Garden Party quilt even has some of those old 80’s country blue prints…and mixed in, no one would notice.
MJ also threw two rotating rotary cutting mats. I squealed over those. I had just been telling Kelli that I wanted a small cutting mat downstairs in the laundry room for when I am trimming blocks. This will be perfect. I took the green one and my daughter Kayla who was home for a visit squealed over the tan one. Kelli already has one….
I LOVE the mats and LOVE the fabric. I’ve already been using the mat. I have to say I sure am happy to have a mat…and the fabric, I can’t wait to start cutting in and making a project.
