You’ve Got Mail


Or I guess, I got mail . . . .  Friday I got a package.  Something I have known about, but frankly, forgotten about.  It was a book published by House of White Birches called Patchwork Comforters, Throws, & Quilts.  One of my quilt patterns is in it.  My pattern is called “Purple Pandemonium.”  The books is really well done.  I love the cover quilt. 

I sent them the information a year ago, so I had almost given up on it.  I guess that’s just how long it takes.  Fun surprise!

    It’s always nice to get a surprise in the mail. Sometimes I order something and then forget about it by the time it gets here.

    How wonderful! Love the quilt on the cover, and I love the name of your quilt, too. I’m collecting purple and wonder if your quilt in the book would be the perfect pattern for my fabric!

    I just recently received my copy also and love your quilt. I really like the bed warmer idea also as I have a guest room with a white bedspread. What a great idea to add some seasonal color to the room. Can’t wait to get started on some of the projects.
