Mail Rarely Makes Me So Happy

I came home from the other day and what did I find?  A little unexpected envelope-packet with my name on it.  Hummm....was I internet shopping at night and forgot?  Oh, no. It's better than that.  This little envelope is filled to the brim with FABRIC! 

I met a lovely woman, named Mary, at a recent guild meeting.  She was showing a spectacular scrappy quilt at show-and-tell that was a white background and a gazillion little 2 inch squares in a sprawling geometric pattern.  I loved it!  She used the Confetti pattern from http://www.teaquilts.com/.  You can view a gallery of finished quilts here

Anyway, as part of the pattern you will need (are you ready?) 1,328 little 2 inch squares.  WHAT!?!?  Not to worry!  Mary was kind enough to start me off.  She must have sent a hundred to me in the mail today.  What a fantastic surprise!  Quilters are such nice people, aren't they?

I would be grateful if anyone else was willing to donate a few 2 inch squares to my quilt project. I have been quilting for just over a year now and just do not have a big enough stash...and I am sure you have a stash you want to be rid of. I am looking for brightly colored fabric. Nothing white/beige as it would blend into the background.  If you have a few squares to spare, would you leave a comment below?  I will get in touch with you.

Cindy, if you email me your address, I'll start saving 2" squares for you. My email is fdowell@mindspring.com

Can't wait to see what you do with them!
