Box # 1 - Elaine's Dotty!

Hi There!

These are the fabrics that STARTED
this whole thing!

Last week, Elaine had seen a picture
of my polka dot quilt and during
a telephone conversation,
she asked if I'd like to have more
polka dot fabrics.
Apparently, she had collected some
polka dot fabrics and she didn't think
she'd ever get a chance to use them.

Well, seriously.... who can refuse fabric, eh?!??


Well, I really can't remember if it was in the same conversation or if we spoke again, but she offered to mail me some more fabric!

Did I want it?!?!?!?

Hey YES!!!


Gilbert and I went to Calais, Maine yesterday and
picked up FIVE boxes of fabric.

Here's what I call Box #1 -
it was the polka dot fabrics.

Here's a side view of these gorgeous fabrics.


My "new" polka dot fabrics are now
intermixed with my other ones and
may perhaps, some day soon,
be used up for yet another
Dear Jane lap quilt....


Tks a bunch, my friend!

The dotty ones are fabulous- I have been drooling over some Kaffe Fassett fat quarters that include some dotty fabrics but so far have resisted. I do like dotty fabrics too- not sure why I haven't got around to collecting many but perhaps one day.
In the meantime, enjoy all those beautiful fabrics. I checked out the photos of the other boxes- you are going to make some fabulous quilts with these fabrics.
Thanks for sharing your photos of the lovely pieces that Elaine sent.
