I'VE GOT MAIL

The packages are starting to arrive! It's fun getting mail these days. I've mentioned I am part of a scrappy block swap, and September is my month to get blocks made for me. I asked for scrappy x and + blocks, with an emphasis on orange and teal.


So far I've received 5 blocks (one is mine) The blocks have come from Sweden, the UK and the states.

 I also won some fat quarters from Dhia. These will come in handy for sure : )



A little peek at my "ticker tape" quilt.



I have to show you my latest treasure. I found this on Friday at our local thrift shop. My other change table was ok, but I couldn't leave this there. $39 ----------- love it.


Have a great week-end everyone.

So many exciting things going on! Love those blocks. How cool is that to have them come from all over the world.....literally! Love the nursery addition!

great blocks and awesome table. did you sew a cover for the changing mat? mine is just plain white, thinking about making a cover, or I may just buy it. hmm
or maybe buy some special fabric from Connecting threads as they have some that's plastic coated or whatever it's called.

The blocks look great together! Maybe I'll find time tomorrow to make yours. I would have picked up that piece of furniture, too ;-) Love it!

I loved viewing all your beautiful moda quilts on the previous post. There were lots of terrific pieces to view- I particularly liked the attic window quilt with the photos. It was really well done.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards,

Those swap blocks are coming out beautiful. The ticker tape quilt is on my list and that was a great deal on the changing table!

Of course you couldn't leave that great table at the thrift store. What a score! Those blocks are great! Have fun with the new FQ's you won. They look like they'll go with those great blocks.

That is a sweet changing table. Lots of character and charm. :) And your blocks are so gorgeous. I love getting blocks in the mail!

We are making those x and t blocks this month in one of my bees. They look great. I like the look of your ticker tape quilt. I've always wanted to make one of those.

love those X and + blocks!

Orange and teal - a brilliant combo. And that ticker tape quilt - what a great way to use scraps - is there a pattern? What a perfect table for almost anything, but especially for changing babies and storing all the necessities - great buy!

Megan said...

It's such a treat to get the blocks back when it's your bee month, isn't it? Your bee mates did a great job with the fabric you chose!

Fabraholic said...

More blocks coming :-) The ones you have look great already! That ticker tape quilt is sooo cute. Is there a pattern somewhere?

Sarah said...

The orange and teal look great together. Do you have a plan for putting the blocks together yet?

Nicky said...

Looking lovely together!

Love those blocks and need to make more!
