and I could not wait to open it!

can you say, "WOW!"???

wanna know what all that is???

some hope valley by Denyse Schmidt...

  a double hourglass quilt started.
for me to finish...

 aviary by 3 sisters for moda
jelly roll and layer cake

 gypsy rose by fig tree quilts for moda 
jelly roll and layer cake...

 some yardage of (mostly moda) reds...

 a fig tree quilts jelly stars quilt kit 
(dandelion girl fabric)...

 and that's all!
not that it's not a lot.
just that there is no more to show you.

for now.

a bit more will be coming.

this all from Cathy of Quilting On Turtle Hill!

remember her?

if you don't, check this out.


Cathy was having a destash sale a week ago.
i, of course, wanted it all.
i, of course, did not get it all.
but, for what i received...
we wheeled and dealed.

she drives an awful hard bargain!

actually, she made an offer 
that i absolutely could not refuse.
part of the offer was that she asked me to
put together a quilt top for her.
i am so excited!
and honored!

her payment to me for doing it?
some of the above fabric!
what could possibly be better than that??
i mean, really.

 i am so blessed!
thank you, Cathy!

with this added to my stash,
i have plenty to keep me busy in 2011.
wouldn't you say?
please shoot me if i mention
that i need to buy fabric!
other than specific fabric
to finish something, that is.
