6 mail day.


Sorry for the silence this week, I've been out of town for work and wasn't organized enough to plan posts ahead of time.  One of the only good things about work trips (outside of being able to get sushi for dinner and getting some necessary face to face time with my coworkers) is coming home to a pile of fun mail to open!  
Inside package #1, the first of the herringbone blocks from Inspire circle member Ly+Alan for our April do. Good Stitches quilt!  I'll share more details on these blocks once the rest of them arrive, but they are being made using my herringbone quilt block tutorial.
Next up, a couple fun fabrics from the lovely Jeni of In Color Order!  It's my little sister's birthday next week and I think I can make some cute little surprises with these to go with her gift.
Last but certainly not least, I received a fabulous package from Tammy (aka Karamat) for the Make Mine Modern Swap!
As soon as I opened the box there were beautiful handmade cards right on top... I'm not sure I can bear to send them out to anyone, they are so pretty!  
They're made with Sugar Pop, which is such a cute line!  I love the colors.
Here's a closeup so you can see how perfect they are!  Just look at that stitching!
Also in the package...the latest issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  
And the first book by the creative genius that is Anna Maria Horner, Seams to Me!  I can't wait to read through this and the magazine.
Yellow and gray fabrics including Lotus from Amy Butler!  I love this whole stack!
And the most gorgeous item of the bunch, a notebook covered in my favorite color (gray of course) and the most beautiful Innocent Crush Dresden!  It's even got grid paper in it so I can use it for sketching out quilt designs!  
Thank you so much for this wonderful package Tammy!  It is absolutely perfect and I can tell just how much thought you put into making it for me.  I love it so much!!

Hope you're all having a happy mail day and/or Friday :)


  1. Wow, what a fantastic package. I really want to join that swap next time around!

  2. Wow wow wow! Need to get me a copy of Seams to Me!

  3. You should go out of town more often if this is what you get to come home to! Beautiful fabrics. I can't wait to see what you make for your sister :)

  4. Goodness - that swap package is heaven. Makes me want to go whip up some cards pronto.
