iPhone-o-Gram! Fat Quarter Windfall!

The post man just made a drop on my doorstep – a box addressed to me!

I haven't ordered anything from Amazon lately, so I was curious as to what was in the box – I tore it open right away!

Oh goodness – it's a whole collection of very fun fat quarters for me to play with!

The note inside is from Marti –

She was in my mystery quilt class at fabric fanatics last New Year's and just finished that quilt as a wall hanging –and sent   along a batch of fat quarters – just because :-)

Just because is a very good reason!

Thank you Marti – this really brought a smile to my face today, and I can't wait to play with them :-)

There is more desk work to get done, however – but the weekend is almost upon us, and I am hoping for lots of sewing time!

Love from the basement


  1. I just learned how to make pillowcases using that 'rolling method' and those would be so cute for charity ones. I have made 5 this week alone!

    I am sure you already have a fun plan for them - enjoy your surprise.

    Adding extra novelty prints to any scrap quilt it always fun. Adds a little I SPY type game.

    Have fun with those !

  3. What fun! Fun to get a surprise in the mail, and fun novelty prints! Have a great weekend! Any chance of a quilt cam? I have missed the last few, unfortunately

  4. What a great surprise. You have obviously spent a lot of time at your desk and have backorders on the brain. LOL. I think play time is in order.

  5. well, well, well--see just how special you are? I cant think of one person that doesnt like a surprise..enjoy!!!!

  6. Love surprises. Know you will make a special quilt with all the cute prints. Have a great week-end. Hope you get to go the Quilt Villa and relax with your hubby. You are due for some time just having fun and not being on a schedule.

  7. What a great surprise. Good for you Bonnie.

  8. Have fun with all those Theme prints. Can't wait to see what you make with them all. I figured the Aito correct was working overtime when I first read this post. I knew what you meant anyway. Picture told it all!

    Had a chance to get acquainted with Fabric Fanatics today at a Shop Hop organized here in the town where I live. B-U-tiful batiks. I name-dropped and asked for directions to their shop since I am often visiting family in their area. Maybe I can get there for real this year at New Years. Been a fan forever. Stephani in N. TX (Tomazec@aol.com)

  10. Such a beautiful box of goodies!!! It's almost the same as receiving a box of chocolates... LOL
    Have fun!
    Love from the Netherlands, Ria

  11. It is almost as good as a box of chocolates, The plus is that the fat quarters are calorie free! Enjoy, you deserve it.

  12. That reminds me, did we ever see the box you shipped home from Arizona?

  13. I love the generosity of quilters :0) What a great group we are.

    Happy Sewing with your gift :0)

  14. Lucky You. What a sweet surprise.
    Looks to be some really cute FQ's in there.
    Have fun
