ALQS and a great mail day

Such a lovely day on Wednesday! The weather was great -- almost 80°F and when I got home from work there was not one but two packages waiting for me.

One of the packages contained an assortment of fabrics from eQuilter. They all have spots and/or dots and some of them may end up in the little quilt I am making for Another Little Quilt Swap. For now, they have been added to the black and white fabric stew to see who plays well with the others. I'm in the design phase of the quilt.

The other package contained the Four Seasons Quilt Swap - Spring from Karrin at Karrin's Crazy World.

O, I had forgotten that I had ordered this book and had it delivered to work.

What a really great mail day!


  1. Hmmmm - can't wait to see what comes from that new book *s*

  2. I love your black and white purchases!

  3. I have a collection of B&W fabric too, but I haven't used it yet. I look forward to seeing what you do with your lovely purchase.

  4. Loves those blacks & whites! I just bought a few this weekend, will have to post them tomorrow.

    I have a friend who just used that book to make a dynamite landscape quilt. Have fun with it -- can't wait to see what you do!

  5. I would sure like a lot of wednesdays! I am curious to see what you make out of the black and white fabrics. Take care.

  6. I love it when I get goodies in the mail.

  7. awesome day! My daughter and I have been collecting black and white fabrics too! She is doing a black and white with a touch of deep red quilt, and I am working toward a black and white and gray quilt. I'm aiming for something like a really good black and white photo. Make sure you post pictures of your progress!

  8. Wonderful B&W fabrics. The book looks interesting. I wonder what you will make from it.

  9. ohhh.love black and whites...I am cutting up blacks and whites for 2 quilts at the moment!
