We did it.
It finally happened.
We are OUT of Essential Triangle Tools until more arrive.
There are only a FEW books left, but more will be arriving via Yellow Freight on a pallet and will be picked up at the Yellow Freight depot on Monday evening.
I’ve gone as far as I can go until more stock arrives.
It’s a great feeling, but also one that left me a bit panicky because there are so many orders that are having to wait for more copies of the Addicted to Scraps book and the Essential Triangle Tool.
I didn’t sleep well last night worrying about all of this! But when things are out of our hands, what good does unnecessary worrying do? We are talking quilts here. It’s a book. It’s a triangle tool. It’s not a life or death situation, and yet it just knots me all up that we have blown through more than 2,000 copies of the Addicted to Scraps book, and 1,500 Essential Triangle tools.
The amount of stuff flying out of here has been a landslide of success and happiness. And more on on their way, so I thank you for your patience.
Filling the LAST bundle order last night!

I’m taking a long weekend off. I need it. I will be running to the mountains as soon as this post goes live. I don’t want to miss the autumn leaves turning, the breezes from the front porch, and seeing friends Rick & Mona, as well as Caitlin and baby Carmen – it’s been far too long and we have weekend plans including burgers on the grill and a round of Farkle tonight.
Get me OUT OF HERE!
And this is where some funny stuff comes together in what I am calling the “Shift Happens!” GIFT-AWAY!
Notice anything weird about this copy??
Something happened in the cover application process and the spine has shifted onto the front of the book!
Oops! The back is weird too! See that margin?
When I emailed to report it and get credit for it on my account, we laughed and laughed because I titled the email “Shift Happens”, which has become my buzz phrase for things that go awry with seams and quilt piecing. I told them that I was going to offer this copy up as a Gift-Away.
You see, it’s perfect in every other way, just that the cover is well, UNIQUE.
And then the joke came that “You might be on to something here! Just put your signature in it and I bet it would be worth a one-of-a-kind fortune on Ebay!” HA!
Other things are not perfect either!
This ONE Essential Triangle Tool has a broken Bonus Buddy ruler in it. But the triangle itself, and the directions are perfectly fine. I think I’ll throw this in for good “measure!”
And I’m going to sweeten the deal!
The winner of this “Gift-Away!” will receive not only the “Shift Happens” Addicted to Scraps book and Essential Triangle Tool less-than-perfect bundle, but I’ll throw in a copy of the May/June 2016 issue of Quiltmaker magazine – My quilt Razzle Dazzle is inside! And I’ll finish it off with a lovely quilt journal by Edyta Sitar, and a Fabric Acquisition Expert fridge magnet.
Our drawing will be Wednesday evening because I leave for Quilt Market on Thursday!
Thanks for keeping things fun for me! And don’t forget YESTERDAY’s Quilty Box Giveaway, either! You can enter that one on that post HERE.
Today’s quote inspiration quilt!
Love that row of half blocks!
And the borders are ODD!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Fabulous observations from a Quiltville reader left in the comments section of yesterday's Quiltville Quote of the day. I think she sums it up just perfectly, don't you!
Thank you, Delores!
