Bloggers are Such Lovely People

Do you remember me doing a little show and tell about my friend Robyn's gorgeous "Spool" quilt..
Well I decided I would love the book so I can make this quilt a little later down the track but I was dismayed to discover it was out of print and there was a waiting pre-order list for the new print run. In a conversation with the very lovely Sunny from Quilting Dreams she said she had a copy of the book and would be very happy to send it to me. Sooo! We did a little bartering and look what the postie dropped outside my door.
With the sweetest little card. I have already had a big drool over the quilts within it's covers but the "spool" still remains a favourite...
I am going to start saving all my 1 inch scraps for the spools but I am going to take the advice of my clever friend Robyn and I am going to have several shades of the one colour on each spool rather than all scrappy.

Having seen Robyn's in the flesh so to speak, I like her arrangement much better.
Thank you so much Sunny you lovely girl for your kindness, I am very excited to have received it and to start planning. Your envelope is on it's way to you as I type :)
Now I thought I would end my post with a bit of a giggle. My Daughter shared this with me and I am sure many of you will relate....
Mr R. will never be in this predicament because he can suss out a bakery in a 30km radius. Hee hee!
Ok enough from me. I apparently have not gotten rid of my bronchitis so a bit of rest and more pills are my orders from the Doctor....yuk! I fancy that my Lucy Boston blocks won't tire me too much. LOL!
Enjoy your day,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  5. Bloggers are lovely and generous. I think we all understand how it feels when an idea takes hold and won't let go. I'm looking forward to seeing your version of the spools. I think my hubby needs to hone his bakery finding skills so he doesn't end up in that predicament. We are going away next week and I'm trying to broach the subject of how romantic quilting shops are!

    Very funny hubby pic - we have found plenty of quilt shops with a waiting chair outside, and G always takes advantage of a little rest.

  15. I can see why you bartered for the book. The spool quilt is so lovely -Im thinking now I might make one for myself !

    Mr. P just disappears when he spies a quilt shop in the distance- he knows he's going to have to amuse himself for hours...
