My Surprise Package!


Look at what audreypawdrey sent me today! A package with 50 (!) 3 1/2 inch squares already cut (and SO precisely, I might add!) for my I Spy quilt for my granddaughter! Thank you, thank you, thank you SO much Audrey. What a great gift and generous gift of your precious time. I have looked through them over and over and my granddaughter will just love these. You must have better fabric stores in your area than we do here. There's everything from airplanes, to trains to rocketships with a little Sesame St. and the Flintstones and even Scooby Doo thrown in. I saw tennis balls, butterflies, horses, flip flops, dresses, skates, even money! You name it - it's just wonderful. I have cut around 40 and now with these 50, I should be able to start arranging in my color groups and seeing how I'm going to start sewing this together. This will be so much fun. I just can't thank you enough Audrey. You're the greatest and I hope you don't mind that I shared this with everyone. Much love to you.

I am glad that you can use them! i have to admit that I did not purchase all of them but swapped with another girl who worked in a fabric store to increase my novelty fabric stash. Therefore, I had plenty of scraps to share with you! Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Awesome, to you and AudreyPawdrey! Those are excellent squares of fun characters and playthings to combine with what you already have.
What a total blast this quilt will be!
