Anticipated Arrival!

My FABRIC has arrived! The selections from Shabby Fabrics arrived last Thursday. My lovelies from The Old Country Store got here Saturday. The Old Country Store e-mailed a tracking number - both a blessing and an aggravation. I KNEW the FABRIC was in Panama City early Saturday. I spent an entire day watching out the front window ... sort of pacing, trying to pretend I was not anxious - looking, looking, looking! I must have taken a bathroom break at the exact arrival time because I missed seeing the mail truck. Drat! Finally, unable to stand the suspense, I walked to my mailbox. My FABRIC had arrived.
Beautiful! Absolutely Beautiful. This is Grace by Three Sisters for Moda. It is their 2011 Christmas release; however, my plans are for this Beautiful Fabric to become my winter bed quilt. I find the graceful design not limited to Christmas!

The wonderful cat tote in the pictures was made by Lucky-1, Stitch Selection. This tote will become the home of zip lock bags containing 630 cuts of fabric waiting to become a quilt. My selected pattern is Lucky Stars by Atkinson Designs. Now I am off to iron, iron and iron some more. Have I mentioned ironing is my least favorite part of quilting? Oh, well one must do what one must do.

Those fabric colours are just gorgeous. I agree, they're not just for Christmas. I'm looking forward to watching your stars come out!
