Happy day.

It's so fun to get mail.
I had a lovely surprise in the mail when my hubby came out to our house yesterday...
in the mail was a box from Toni.
Inside the box was this lovely turq/red/white fabric
that I was drooling over, (several of us were)
and several of us bought the Yellow version of it, because Toni
was lucky enough to have gotten the last of the bolt...

EEEEK! I screeched in PURE DELIGHT.
Then I proceeded to do a little happy dance...
The fabric is by Jennifer Paganelli,
and you know how much I love her fabrics!!!

I cut into it IMMEDIATELY with the package all laying on my cutting mat...
And added it to one of my star blocks...(above)

thanks Toni.
I love it.

I have a question for all of you.

Can any of you spare
ONE Orphan Block?
(orphan block = any pieced block that has not found a home in a quilt)

I'm working on a project
(not a charity quilt)

and I need a some

extra Random squares...
Any size,
any colors
any block design

I don't need 10 of the same block.
And I don't need TONS of blocks...

So if you have ONE block you want to contribute...

Please send to:

Bumble Beans Inc.
335 W 38th St, 8th fl
New York, NY 10018


It's not all BASICS quilts over here...
I took a break on this triangle commission quilt...
now am back at it...

My go cutter from accuquilt has been so helpful with this project...
Once get the borders on, I am gearing up for the applique portion...
Horses, girl, house, from the design on the pink fabric..

And lastly. But most importantly.

11 years ago, I said " I DO"

And I'd say "I do" a million times over to him again...

Happy Anniversary, Hubby!

  26. Aww... happy anniversary!

    You're going to be inundated with blocks you know, even if everyone does only send one. I know I will be!

  27. I have a block I am going to send you - it may take awhile since it is coming from Panama via the local mail. We have a special delivery that's a bit faster maybe two weeks is that OK?


  28. Awww, happy anniversary. Great photo.

  29. OMG - Victoria - I'm just now seeing this and you're cracking me up! Just excited you like it and it was really fun to send it! Of course HAPPY ANNIVERSARY very late but I still think it's important! Have a wonderful rest of your week - I'm off to Alaska Sat - I know - gotta get a blog up and running! :-)
    Love Toni
