catch ups

Catch ups and thankyous.  Firstly a lovely texty fabric swap with Cindy of Live a Colorful Life.  A great little stack of wordy black white and cream prints.  Thankyou Cindy!
I won an Amy Butler giveaway at Sewmama sew recently and the good people at Amy Butler sent me a big stack of half yard cuts and a pile of patterns.  The top three are organic quilting cottons with a lovely smooth texture- my favourite is top far right.  The bottom three are a new Voile fabric, similar to Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks voiles, really silky.   They would make great dress fabric. These three (bottom of photo) are going into the pile of Little Folks voiles that will magic themselves into a quilt one day.  
And finally, a block- a great big block- around 19-20 inches square, I haven't measured exactly for Angela in a new bee, Stash Trad.  This is a bee where we use our own fabrics and create traditional style blocks, still a relatively new thing for me.  This is her own design too, Cracker Scraps  and lovely and straightforward to do, plus at this size you could swiftly assemble a very large quilt.
I am still catching up with my Ringo Pie blocks, a Christmas one is a-coming for Amber...
