Mail Call time, old and new.

During the crazy GO! week I got two packages.  And I have been meaning to post and of course haven't.

This first one was very exciting.

Now I can do free motion quilting.  My evenfeed foot went to pieces on me thinking I was replacing her.  So now I need a new even feed foot.

And I won this bag of notion and fabrics from Pat.  I was so excited.  It was my first win.  She included some cotton too.  I made some wonky log cabin squares with some of it and didn't take a picture so they will be up later when I get my squares back.

Then Friday I got this package from a little island. 

Inside were these beautiful purple fabrics. 

I laid out this quilt. 

I was short one light purple tumbler for my layout and didn't really want to reaarrange rows to try to fit the two left over tumblers in. Then I remembered the fabric from Pat and wouldn't you know they matched!  So I made a patched tumbler that matched.

Can you spy it in my tumblers now?  You can if you look real hard but I wanted the pattern to flow instead of having a color out of place. 

Thanks Barb, can't wait to Snuggle under a quilt just for me.  It has been way too long since I made something just for me.  I got a Friday night sew in!  Yeah.  Last friday I tried and failed.  My blocks didn't turn out and well it not a good night.  Yesterday though it went great.  My boys let me sew, and I only had to tear out two seams that went on crazy.  So now my tumblers are all together and I just need to finish the top with some boarders.  Then I get to use my new foot and try some free motion quilting.
