Happy Mail Day!!!

Don't you love it when you get fun stuff in the mail? Even if you sent it to yourself... hehe.
Well today was THAT day for me.  I love shopping at Fat Quarter Shop. Such great turn around time and great products!  I was floating around the web drooling at some other quilts blogs and when I was poking around Camilles blog she was raving about Little House pins. So I went on a search and FQS had them! So I decided a little retail therapy was in order! Let me first say I did call my local Quilt shops and neither of the two had any, so I turned to the web.  I support local when I can because these people are our neighbors so try to support local when you can!

Anyway... I will just leave you with some eye candy.  Here is what I purchased

Little House Pins

Moda Tin Boxes

I absolutely love those Moda tin boxes...I have many of them and they are so handy!  The pins are so very sharp and go in like Butta, and that fabric....sigh...Lori Holt knows how to design what I like
Right from inside my head! LOL. I will be back soon with more to show you, because I had another day of happy Mail.....until then....

Quilt Along May 2017

Hi everyone!  Hope your all well and still with me.  Had to take a bit of a break to deal with some pretty serious stuff.  Now things have settled down a bit and we are finding our new normal.  So the last Quilt along was not well received which kind of surprised me but only Robin, Mandy and I participated.  Nonetheless I am still going to showcase our quilts and issue the new Challenge for the June Quiltalong.  So we left off with The Disappearing Four Patch.

Here is Robins, beautiful job as always with her quilting!  Nice job Robin

Mandy used lovely soft colors of white and lavender

And now mine
I decided to double the width just because no real 
 I love the way it showcases my candle holder, gives it a kind of Little house on the prairie feel. 

So that was the big show.  Now onto next month.....Due on or before May 31st for the June first show.

I do hope you participate, now we are getting back on track!

Okay so hop on into your book

and open to page 21

This is a really fun project!  Hope to see what different fabrics you all come up with!!! See you all soon~~ Until then, enjoy the sunshine!
