WIP Wednesday and Happy Mail

The OIB, Old Italian Block top made it to the porch for a picture just as the wind picked up.
I'm the only one who will know there's a right side up for this quilt with the light-bright shades on the top and dull shades on the bottom.
The underside of quilts always make me smile with the seams ironed open flat.  I'm wanting to try more patterns from the book Rotary Cutting Revolution once this is done.

Happy Mail

Not sure how she did it but the amazing Julie of Intrepid Thread filled and shipped my order of AMH Field Study before I could even blink.  It's catch up time for the Sew Intertwined QAL with no excuses.
In other amazing news... my wonderfully generous prize for participating in the Zakka Style Sew Along arrived with a cute little note from Sukie - how'd she know I love Tina Givens stationary? Check out the SAL at LRStitched. Get a load of all that Lecien Cosmo - yikes, I'm lucky. Thanks you Lindsey and Amy.
