I had boxes arrive while I was gone and this one arrived this morning from Cheryl. She wrote and asked about donating tops to HeartStrings and this box arrived packed with beautiful tops.
I had to pull them out to look….
I also got a box from Nancy and the Peace by Piece quilters at St. Mary’s in CT. They sent 300+ Happy Blocks and a quilt top for me to finish. We’ll be assembling blocks at our April sew-in so these will go with me for us to work on there.
And finally, another blow for my stashbusting efforts…I’ve been running short on fabrics to use for borders so I ordered a bunch of 2 yard cuts from Thousands of Bolts. They have the best prices! I don’t feel too guilty about this purchase or the fat quarters at the quilt show last week because I’m getting a lot of piecing done so I’m happy as long as I’m using more than what’s coming in.
Today’s a catch up day before we leave tomorrow for Chicago. I’ve been unpacking, doing laundry, catching up on email, going through my other mail, and I did get a top loaded on the longarm. I’m aiming for 10 tops in March but will be getting a late start due to my travels. Wish me luck!
