Somedays I just love it when the mailman comes to the door!
Today I got two packages that I knew were coming but didn't have a firm date on so they were sort of a surprise. First is a quilt I purchased on Ebay...I love the spiderweb design and I've started one a couple times but they are languishing in the UFO pile.
This quilt is circa 1930 and has a great collection of fabrics in it. A very happy quilt. And yes...more yellow! (I have an appointment with my eye doctor next week and I'm going to ask him if my Optic Neuritis may have something to do with my new love of yellow?!)
This was a good ebay purchase...it is so much nicer in person than the photos the seller had on her posting. Sometimes it works the other way....
Also my new Material Obsession Book arrived! I love these. The original deliver date was in August but had been moved up two times...thus the surprise arrival!
As for quilting...I've put the donation quilt aside for a few days. Need to look at it with fresh eyes. Tomorrow I'm bringing it to a small quilting group to make a final decision. In the meantime I've sewn together some of the 2-inch squares that were left over from the applique and from the 2-inch bin to make a dancing/jumping 9-patch using Bonnie Hunter's directions. I used a variety of gray scraps to make the sashing pieces..It is making up into a fun quilt.
