"A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER"

When my niece sent me the care package she also sent these wonderful fabrics.......and they are oooooooooo so nice.....you can find them here



and these fabrics!!!



She is too good to me!!
I can't help but open the fabrics up....look, feel.....and yes...smell....oh....sooo nice!!


I think I am going to become a fabric snob.....


Yes, she has learned that she must send goodies in my package.....she doesn't want me bad mouthing her on my blog (I wouldn't do that.....hummm).


Now....all of you took a vote on what border I should use and so the majority rules in this house (of course, I am the majority here) but most of you voted for #4 and #4 is it....turned out pretty nice.

I was sandwiching it (hummmm I would love a sandwich right now)....and my husband loves it....he could not believe that I will be giving this away....you heard it here....yep....in a few weeks...as soon as my niece gives the word....it will go to some lucky winner....well....I suppose I had better quit blogging and get sewing...

I love that ginger jar quilt and hope I might be the lucky one when the giveaway is done!!! GREAT fabrics from your niece, too. Sorry I couldn't fit "goodies" in the package this time.....was barely able to fit the items I DID send, as you saw when you opened the box. LOL

Oh, oh , oh!!!! I love it and 4 was my second choice. Seeing it on there I think the majority made a great decision. I love the Ginger Jar quilt. I hope I win that beauty!

What a lovely quilt, (BTW, the border looks terrific). And you're giving it away? 8-) I'll have to try for it!

I just love the yellow striped fabric with the blue pansies. Pansies are my favorite "quilt" flower. I just finished a quilt top where the focus fabric is masses of pansies. Enjoy the additions to your stash!

All the best,
Susan

If you would like to send your neice my address, that would be fine. She really knows how to pick out fabric! and I think we all just, look, touch, unfold, refold and love our fabric. Hey great candy!! Also #4 does look wonderful!!

Gorgeous fabric! It's funny how we all smell the new fabric. Even my son (10) pets the fabric then smells it lol.

You are going to be able to make so many pretty things with all of that fabric! And your finished quilt is gorgeous. I know I voted for 4, but it looks even better than I thought.

Susan said...

I think your niece needs to have a talk with my niece! ;o) Your quilt is looking great!
