Look What I Got!

A few weeks before we went on vacation in August I joined a fabric squares swap...vintage sheet or whatever else you had. I had a little of both so i got to cutting. I packaged up 10 little fabric bundles like the one above full of sheet squares and other fabrics i love. I thought the wait would kill me. I was very excited to see what was going to come back to me.
And I was not disappointed. In the mail this week all 200 squares arrived!!! I stacked and sorted them and checked them all out as soon as they came. Now what right? Well, i am in love with this quilt and hope i can make something like it with my squares.

I checked out the link for the quilt. I like it. The squares are all vintage? Very nice prints. Who send it and from where?

unfortunately they were not all vintage but...neither were mine. So, i sorted out the nice vintage ones of a certain color palate and will be working with those and what i have here in the stash

How fun...I was sorry to have missed a sheet swap myself...but then I'm not much of a quilter lately. I can't wait to see your next project.

I found the quilt you gave us a link to-- I have complete confidence in you, dear friend.... AND WAIT A MINUTE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my DEAR FRIEND!!! I was afraid I would forget and then tomorrow it would be Marie's b-day... but here we are-- I remembered! I hope your day is sweet and... crafty? delicious? Romantic? I hope your day is everything.
