An absolutely gorgeous flood of red 1.5″ squares is arriving at my home each day, as I try to grapple with needing over 3000 of those little suckers for my red postage stamp quilt.
While I was in Austin for work, Cindy’s baggie of goodies arrived (wait! maybe I shouldn’t say “bag of goodies” and “Austin” in the same sentence???) Oh, well. It was, indeed, a baggie and it was, indeed, filled with goodies of the fabric kind.
Then, this afternoon another baggie arrived from Minnesota courtesy of Pieceful Wendy Do you think that the number of 1.5″ squares in each bag is a measure of how much the gifters love me? Yeah, me neither, but Wendy, just between you and me, I know who loves me the most 😉
Tonight I received a message from UPS that some more scraps are headed my way from the Rocky Mountains and the home studio of Tierney Creates.
Then Roseanne from Homesewn By Us blogged about my project and she’s sending squares too.
I’m overwhelmed and I cannot wait to see how quickly I can get all these pieces sewn together. Thank you, thank you everyone!
P.S. I found out today that I’ll be traveling to London in January for work. I’m googling fabric shops in London right now….

Like I said on Roseanne’s blog: I love this!!! I’m with you guys in spirit if not on the cutting board!!!!
Enjoy the happy!
Hi Sandy! So glad those baggies are starting to arrive. Soon that 3,000+ will be down to a more manageable number. I so excited to see this red beauty when you’ve got it all pieced. Those fabrics from Wendy are so pretty! I love red! Merry Christmas to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne
The ones from me got mailed out today but I was not nice enough to cut them into 1.5 inch squares – sorry! But lots of variety coming your way! (and I am going to do a blog post about it and share the link to your post in case more people can reach to you and see if you need more red scraps 🙂
Oh, I’m so glad they arrived and are joining all the others. How fun! London in January! Liberty of London is on your list, I hope?!
Wendy — I have been wanting to get my hands on some Liberty fabric for a long time. Do you own some?
I do. A friend of mine brought me back 4 half meters. They are pet fabrics. 😊
As in you can never cut them because they are so pretty?
Hope you enjoyed Austin!
Chela — I got to go to the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar for the first time in 20 years. It was so wonderful! And I got to see the Zilker tree too (from a distance, whew — that traffic was crazy). So much fun (and work too, of course).
Austin and traffic are synonymous! Always fun, though!
London! That is so awesome you are going there for work!
T — Your scraps came today! I am doing the happy dance! Thank you, thank you!!!
You are so welcome 😀
