    I'm doing my own design. I got 17 yards of fabric so I should have enough to do another small quilt.

    I remember people having a wood or metal box on their porch for packages. All the mailman had to do was close it and it was locked. My mailman leaves packages on my front porch just an overhang for protection. There is a closed porch on the side. You should see the ones they cram in the rural box. :roll: :roll: :wink: So glad you got your fabric, I love it :D

    No wonder you were upset the fabric is beautiful. Thank goodness for your neighbor. I used to have stuff delivered to me at work, when I was still working. Sometimes they still take out there, so hubby brings it home. Being in a fairly small town all the UPS drivers know who we are because we were in business for so long they know if no one is at the shop to try the house.
    I'm so glad you got your order after all. :D :D

    K... if I have them delivered to you will they get returned to me eventually? You could just sew them together (in some fabulous way) and return as one big piece for your convenience. :D

    That would have to be one big box on the porch to fit a delivery like 4 queen sized batts. :wink:

    I did work on the Dahlia last week. I got more of the small flowers sewn on and more of the vine done. Still wondering what I'm going to do for a border on it. I have to take it off the bed this week as my daugher, SIL, and 3 kids will be here on Friday.

    About this design... do you think the teddy bear is too "cutesy"? I saw some really nice house blocks, like mansions, that I liked but then I would probably have to revise the small houses. Or make them look more definitively like schools, or maybe churches.

    It's by Windham fabrics... taken from individual pattern motifs of hand-woven coverlets in the collection of The National Museum of the American Coverlet. The pattern motifs chosen for THE COVERLET COLLECTION II were taken from coverlets (bedcovers) woven in approximately 1830 to 1850.

    http://www.coverletmuseum.org/printedcotton.htm

    I got it at Whittle's fabrics online for $3.50 per yard. This entire order was $52.50 plus shipping. I realized that I didn't get 2 yards of one of the fabrics I ordered because they were out of it. When I notified Whittle's that the delivery was found they emailed back "Whew!" and that they had started pulling the fabrics to try and re-create my order but some of them they didn't have enough of.

    Pam,

    So glad the fabric mystery has been solved. I can't wait to see it all sewn up into your design. Depending on who the quilt is being made for, the Teddy Bear in the center could be just fine. For a young boy or girl, it's perfect. For most guys, maybe a bit childish. But for me, it would be perfect, since my nickname is Terry Bear.

    Terry Bear, it's not being made for anyone specifically, at least not yet, I just wanted to do a red, white and blue one. If I gave it to my son rather than another one I was planning on he might not appreciate the bear. I'll be thinking about it and looking around for something that grabs me. I looked at some eagle blocks but they didn't really appeal to me.

    My oldest daughter loves patriotic things. She even has a tattoo of a motif in the center with US flags as swags on the sides all the way across her lower back and is thinking about extending it around her sides. She doesn't like the old looking beige though, she likes bright white.

    I have had one package stolen off my porch and two other times the woman across the street saw kids messing with a box on my porch. One of them she caught them opening it, it was half opened.

    She started getting my deliveries but I haven't heard from her so I don't suppose she picked up that one but I will check with her.

    I am so angry!!!
    Was it UPS or PO? When that happened to me, I called the co that sent it, told them I never received the pkg, and also called the co that said they left it on my front porch. The co that sent the product (as I remember, it was a clock, not fabric) sent a new product. It SHOULD have had the automatic $100 insurance that goes with either USPS or UPS.

    How about crossed flags? Or another star? Or the Betsy Ross Flag?

    It was sent USPS, flat rate box.

    I did get it eventually but now I know that it's just not my loss if I don't receive something.

    I'm a little concerned about the Go! Cutter that will soon be delivered. I haven't received the email they said would be sent when it is shipped yet. I am probably taking Friday off work and it would be a good thing if it gets delivered then.
