Blocks (Or Pieces Of Blocks) and Mail

Today I got together with a couple of my quiting friends. We worked on a quilt called Gallantly Streaming. The pattern is put out by Cozy Quilt Designs. It is from their Cozy Strip Club Pattern series. The quilt is made from 2 1/2" fabric strips. I forgot to get my camera out before my friends left so I don't have photos of their blocks. They are much farther along then I am. As you can see I have one block out of 12 made and the little unit sections to make the rest of the blocks. The next time I get together with my friends maybe I will remember to take photos. I hope so!


Look what arrived in the mail today! Let me tell you, I just love it! Debi over at Quilting With Debi
was celebrating her 300th post and this is how she celebrated - with this generous giveaway. I was so thrilled when she sent me an email telling me I had won. While I was looking through the book "Tea In The Garden" I found myself thinking ohhhhh I like that quilt quite a few times. I love this book! The little Schnibbles pattern "Plan C" is just adorable. There are two charm packs, Hemming House and Tranquility. The panel that you see coordinates with the Tranquility line. I am going to have some fun with these fabrics! Now to decide what to make...I am thinking of using the Hemming House charm pack to make Plan C. Hmmmmm what can I do with the panel and charms that go with it? I will think of something! Thank you soooo much Debi!

I'm making the Tea in the Garden quilt and have enlarged it to make a queen size quilt. There is a lot of applique, but it is coming along so nicely. Have fun making yours.
