fun mail*

Last month I won a give away on Kate's Arty Bits blog. Kate has been re-organising, using or clearing out her scraps.

On Tuesday, I received a package in the mail. Because we have had rainy weather, it arrived a bit worse for wear - the envelope was started to disintegrate. Can you see what's peeking through?

The contents were all intact.

Two blocks like this:

Six blocks like this:

and a pile of half square triangle units - many with Christmas themed fabric.

Debbie, from Esch House Quilts, asked recently about challenges. As those who read this blog regularly know, I have been playing with half square triangles. I am looking forward to the challenge of what to do with these.

Thanks so much, Kate; one woman's scraps are another woman's source material!

PS I "borrowed" the title of this post from Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts who also recently received "fun mail".


  1. Can't wait to see what you do with these blocks! I love the quilter you are becoming!

  2. Ooh - that would be fun! Those reds will certainly work together to make a dramatic quilt.

  3. As soon as I saw the peek photo and that beautiful burgundy/red material, my thoughts instantly went to Christmas. Day-dreaming about my own Christmas Quilt. Nope, don't have space or skills to do it myself, but if I ever see it ....... its mine!!!


Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
