    I knew it was coming but I didn't realize how much. A wonderful quilter asked if she could bless me after reading my wish list. She said she wanted to send me some fabric's for Christmas. Well I didn't expect to see such a big box. When I opened the door my jaw just about hit the ground and my eyes almost popped out.
    I had already gotten several envelopes today in the mail of notions fabric and all were so pretty.
    Here are many pictures of what I got in the big box.
    Thank you my wonderful quilting angel. You some how knew exactly what I love.
    It will take me a little while to down laod all the pic's so please be patient.
    :-D

    This is what I did with the Cars fabric for grandson's in 2008. Pattern was in a Fons and Porter magazine. I need to do some checking, possible a 2006 issue in the fall. I am in the middle of moving and most of my quilting/sewing stuff is all packed in the trailer and waiting to be unloaded at new house. So if you are patience or if someone has it at there fingertips, I will pm you when I setup my new quilting/sewing room.
    My grandson's are now 6 and 5. Also made matching pillowcases.

    Such a great early christmas present you received.
