yay for mail!

After a long, boring day at work, this was in my mailbox when I got home:


(*happy dance*)
(ooh...look at those selvages Lisa...)

I ordered these late last week for borders and binding on this:


That word print is not the easiest thing to find and I wanted red for the other border and binding and that was even hardrer to find at one shop...

My sis-in-law is coming for a quilty day Saturday, so I'll probably have this to show soon...as a top at least!

Progress report on my one thing, one week challenge tomorrow.

Happy quilting,
Katie

Hurry, hurry! I can't wait to see what you do with those fabrics. That quilt is so neat. I've never seen one quite like it; could it maybe be considered a different style of string quilt? Whatever, I like it! ---"Love"
