The only thing better than the first issue of a new quilting magazine is receiving free fabric in the mail at the same time! This month, I’m the “Queen” in a fat quarter swap. There are 12 members, myself included, and each month we send a fat quarter to that month’s ‘Queen’. Going to the mailbox to check the mail has never been as exciting as it has been this past week, for the odds are quite good that there’ll be a bit of fabric in the box for me.
This is my first two fat quarters–in one of my favorite colors–teal! I’ll receive another nine fat quarters over the next week. I have my shopping all done for the other members of the swap, and the envelopes are all addressed and ready to be mailed out each month. I hope the other members are as happy with what I’ve chosen for them as I am with what I’m receiving.
Meanwhile, I’m still working at pressing and trimming up the scraps I received from a woman here in town. These are very usable scraps, and I’m grateful to receive them.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
