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!
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!
