Surprise package

This enormous box was waiting on my doorstep last week. HMMM...... what could be inside??

Mr. B is my homeland security, checking for anything suspicious. Once he was done with his inspection, I opened it up to find what Amy (Calico Cat) calls UFOs. If only my UFOs were this complete!!! One is a beautiful flimsy in pinks and greens, the other is already sandwiched and partly tied with cute little white buttons. I absolutely love the fabrics and the design. They remind me of several Amy has made from " The Modern Quilt". I have the book and have yet to make one. I've already told Calico Cat that these are in the queue to be finished. In fact, they have bumped several of my own to the back of the line. In addition, Amy sent me a pile of books to peruse for more inspiration. Thanks so much, Dandylion~~

Once the box was empty, Mr. B spent a good amount of time IN the box. He loves a good box and apparently, according to Amy, this had been RB's box. I think they both knew that as much sniffing and smelling was done.
I saw this little group of fabric on a fellow quilter's blog and immediately knew I had to make a quilt for my new little great-niece, Isabella. I emailed Dawn and she told me the name of the fabric line., Baby Bella by Marcus (how perfect!!!). I was lucky to find some online and ordered it. I have already got the blocks done and the rows together. I ran short (what else is new!??) on the brown dot for the borders so I have to reorder. But once that arrives, it will be done and quilted. I'll share photos of the flimsy later this week.I was very productive this weekend, despite the 90 degree weather, but short of time right now~Photos of this weekend's projects tomorrow~ HAPPY MONDAY!!!!

You hit the jackpot! And how nice that the package went from one cat-friendly household to another.

I love the Baby Bella fabric. How cute. I had a new granddaughter born on May 19th. They named her Izabella Peyton. I love her name. Congrats on becoming a great aunt.

Is the idea to pass along UFOs for someone else to finish?

Latest finish and a preview

I am taking this one with me to Florida for Cayden who is now ON THE MOVE. Just started walking! Not sure why the pictures are so pinky! I ...
