I have had the fun chance to pattern test Bandbox for Emily of Aunt Em's Quilts and am quite pleased with the way it turned out. I have been wanting to use some of the reproduction feedsack fabrics and decided this was the perfect pattern for them.
The quilt is crib size - 42x54 inches.
I used a white flannel on the back which will make the quilt very soft and comforting.
While we were away on vacation several delightful packages arrived in my mailbox. It's always fun to come home to such fun surprises.
First off was a box filled with goodies from Ida at My Sis Made Me Do It. There were wonderful fall kitchen towels, an adorable hankie doll card and amazing pincushions that she made. I fell in love with her cactus pincushion when she had her Pincushion Parade and she mailed it to me. Thank you so much, Ida.
Then there was a book from Linds at Rocking Chair Reflections. Her review of it sounded wonderful so I am looking forward to digging into this one. Thanks, Linds.
I received three patterns from a giveaway that Carol of Just Let Me Quilt had. I think I need to make the hanging bat one for my next Halloween project. That is so cute and the grandchildren would love it. Thanks, Carol.
Lastly, I received a box with a fat quarter bundle of Frosty Forest from My Fabric Relish. I was the winner from Lisa's Christmas in July Hop. I posted about the patterns that I also received from Cherry here. I think the tree skirt is in my future!
I'm looking forward to getting back to the sewing machine on a more regular basis once I finish emptying boxes and cleaning up from the remodel. I was spoiled when I had an excuse for not cleaning house!!!
