    'kelmscott',

    'tudor rose'
    'morris magic'
    'minature sampler'

    Jacquie, I have been looking for the book on-line and haven't ordered it yet. Do you think the cost of mailing it would be worth it? I would be happy to send some fabric your way. Anything in mind you would like??

    well, i would be quite happy to post it over to you, no problem. i would have to pay postage wherever i sent it.
    i think it would be quite special also if i were using fq's from my good friends in the usa! lovely happy thought

    i think anything 'sensible' in Burgundy's, sage greens, something with blue flowers/gold flowers... nice fabrics large/small prints... whatever you think i'll like

    if you're happy, i will go ahead and post this off to you.
    love jacquie xxx

    Jacquie, how do you do it????
    I know!! I found out a few years ago while in Europe how much they pay for cotton fabric! I only allowed myself one meter and it was medium priced at $38.00 american a meter. And this wasn't in a tourist area, it was just a small fabric store. The only place it was more reasonable ( but still high ) was at the local outdoor markets. What we would call a flee market or weekly farmers market.

    just beautiful!
    thank you patti
    i can't wait to start on this one!!

    the wait will def' be worth it though!!

    thank you ladies, you're both very kind and helpful!

    Jacquie,
    These are what I've pulled from my stash. A couple aren't full fat quarters, but enough to use for applique projects. I would like to add a couple more FQ's but won't be able to get them for a few days. ( I have some in mind. ) Do you mind waiting a little longer so I can add them, or should I just send what I have here?

    joan, my goodness! these are lovely! very pretty choices of fabrics!
    my thoughts were to use your 'fq's' for the 'william morris' quilt...
    so, there is no problem with waiting a bit longer.
    thank you for being so kind and generous, i appreciate it

    I'm glad you like them. And I glad you don't mind waiting a bit because I think you will be happy with he ones I want to add. Hopefully, I can get them and send them out to you next week.

    thank you joan, i do look forwards to getting them and having a play! lol... but like i said, "there's no rush"!

    i got the box today with dayle's & patti's rows.
    my goodness joan!!!! the postage!!! i nearly died!!!
    infact i'm still in shock!!! $58!!!!!!!!!! joan!!!!!!
    would it maybe have been a little bit cheaper to for you to send them seperately in their own jiffy bags? just a thought...
    i still can't get over that!!!

    well, these 2 lots will have me sewing for a wee while any way! i just need to wash some fabrics i have put aside for patti's row, and i just wanted to see dayle's in front of me before i started planning her stars. . you can't always trust the pc for colour matching... i've found a few nice patterns forstars, i just need to chose my couple of favorites
    sometimes that's harder to do than making the blocks, as there are 'sew' many lovely patterns to pick from!

    ho hum! off to the sewing room!!

    love jacquie xxxxx

    I did nearly have a stroke when the guy told me how much postage was. I could have gone back home and packaged them seperately, but he said it still would have been about 47 dollars, so I just went ahead with it. Live and learn!! It would have taken me 15 minutes back home then repackage, then 15 minutes back to stand in line for another 1/2 hour to get waited on. Not to mention the gas for the car. Ten or eleven bucks didn't seem worth it at the time.
