Guess what came in the mail!

Just now we got our mail... I got this...

 Two, count them, two full BIG bags of strips from my Buddy Terri Bohling (who blogs over at Quilting Nonnie - Nonnie means Grandma, but you knew that.)   I sent her some I Spy snippets and now she has upped the ante. There must be hundreds of 2 inch X WoF strips!!! Wow! I gotta say it again... WOW!
Now some close-up shots of about 1/4 of one of the bags...
and again another 1/4 of one of the bags. (You know, I don't see any repeats!!!!!)
How generous, Terri. You did it now. I'll have to get you back somehow. (Heart) I'm going to watch TV tonight and fondle these. I've got a big night ahead.
Thank you soooooo much. You made my week, maybe month even! I've gotta figure out something special to make out of  these.


  1. Wow! I see String Quilts in your future!

  2. You are just plumb crazy! I did not send a hundred're leading your readership astray! I just went through my strips and took out ones that looked good. I didn't count and, apparently you didn't either! I'm glad you like them. It was fun to put together, plus I got to fondle my fabrics too!

    1. I did get the number wrong - it's 164, sorry.

  3. Oh me oh my MOTHERLODE!!!!!!! I'm so excited for you. I instantly thought of strips in a colour way teamed with random squares in a solid of the same colour. Oh what fun! Have a wonderful time stroking those beauties.

  4. hmmmm I can hear the wheels turning from here! have fun!

  5. Oh.MY. Goodness! What an amazing gift - Those strings are making my heart sing. Cant wait to see what you do with them. Have you rolled around amongst your new fabric yet?

  6. I see a Christmas quilt in your future. Need any more Christmas fabrics???

  7. I guess you are going to have fun Terri.
