Thank You!


I need to say thank you...first, thank you to those who swapped or sent pieces of Flea Market Fancy from your stash for my Flea Market Fancy hexagon project.  I'm so grateful...fabric arrived from the U.S. and Canada.  One piece arrived in an envelope with no return address...so thank you so  much. I never thought I'd be able to collect this many hexagons.  Unbelievably, I'm now only missing four pieces--the small posies on orange, the other green bubble dots, the small seeds on grey, and the blue medallions. I'm definitely going to figure out my arrangement, choose a background fabric and frame this project when I'm finished.



Another big thanks to Thelma...for enabling me to finished my Shangri La jelly roll sampler quilt along quilt.  I have a "rule" that when I join a quilt-along I have to use fabrics from my stash ( except for borders, backing, and binding).  When I decided to use this Shangri La jelly roll I was sure I knew of a quilt shop where I could find border and binding pieces...of course when I went to pick some up the fabric had all sold. Then just a few days later I saw a Shangri-La quilt on Thelma's blog--she went back to the shop, picked up border and binding fabrics and sent them right away.  Quilter's are an amazing group...thank you Thelma!


And then, yesterday, I had another surprise in the mail...a beautiful scissor fob made and sent by Darlene. I had seen some of these on her blog but had no idea I would be a recipient...thank you so much Darlene!  It's gorgeous--wish I could have gotten a better picture.

I'm definitely going to be working on some "thank you" gifts in the near future!

You've gotta stop tempting me with those hexagons. :-) As if I don't have enough projects.

Your sampler quilt is gorgeous. The border looks really nice. Darlene is always doing something really nice.

Mary Lou Casada said...

The hexies are just as sweet as they can be, aren't they!? And I love the Shangri-La quilt -- I have some of that fabric stuck back for a particular quilt; hope I have enough, for I'm sure it's really getting scarce!
Isn't it great to have quilting friends!
Blessings,
Mary Lou

You know, quilters just renew my faith in humanity. I cannot believe all the nice things they do for other people, with no other motivation than to do something nice. Love it.

Sherri:

Those hexagons look great - I may just have to try making some myself!

Darlene said...

Love your hexies! I'm glad you were able to finish your Shangri-La jelly roll quilt - it's beautiful.

I'm pleased you like the scissor fob - it's to thank you for participating in the hug quilt I received from so many last Fall.

The jelly roll quilt is beautiful. I love the way everyone has followed the same pattern, but have quilts that are so different.

Terriaw said...

Your hexies look fabulous all layed out by print like that. Sure is a fun project! Love your sampler quilt along project too. How nice to get a little help from a fellow blogger to finish your own!

Sherri, I love the colors in your hexi's, they are so bright and cheerful. They make me want to stop what I'm doing and get some made, LOL. Your Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt is just beautiful...and the adorable scissor fob from Darlene...your absolutely right, 'Quilters' are a very special group of people. Their kindness and generosity never ceases to amaze me! Hugs...

Hi there! I got most of my FMF from swaps and friends as well. It looks like you might be covered now from the comments. I'd be happy to pass along the love if you still need your final prints - email me what you still need!
