It came!

Finally! It got delivered to my town at 4:30pm, but didn't make it's way to my mailbox until noon today.

I'm happy with everything! I already flipped through the Nine-Patch book (good job Judy!) and peeked at the Prairie Children and Their Quilts (I'll give it a deep read later).

More thread! I had to order their newest collection, "Garden Thread Set", along with 3 spools of silver for piecing, and 2 white spools for quilting. I'll have to remember to update my Excel list with the new threads. :)

Then there's the "yo-yo" makers. One makes flowers, the other makes circle yo-yo's. The circle one looks like it'll be a good portable quilting activity, like in the car or when I visit the in-laws.

Last of all, the fabric! 15 FQs (Fat Quarters) and a 1 yard dark green piece. The yellow/gold fabric is going to be the triangles in the Pineapple Blossom, and the other FQs will be for strips. The dark green piece will be for the binding. If I did my math correctly, I'll be able to get 30 blocks from the FQs. I'm *not* prewashing the fabric this time, I can't afford to let it shrink and I'd like to give myself a chance to quilt with unwashed fabrics. Of course I'll wash it afterwards. :)

And there you have it, my goodies. ;) I'm gonna eat lunch and then start to make the Pineapple Blossom quilt.

WOW!!! That's some haul!!
Secondly, I missed your bday :(
I hope it was a happy one- I'd sing but...well late or not that wouldn't be fair to you or blogland, roflmbo. I too ordered the Prarie Children quilt book. You know it never dawned on me to order thread last week when hubby was ordering strips- maybe all this gray is really white blond hair. Look at all those brown/ gold fabrics....yummmmmm. Enjoy your loot, gotta go iron more corners for my pineapple quilt *VBG*

ooh I'm jealous!! Been coveting Prairie Children and their Quilts. And I love 9patch quilts so I'll have to covet that book now too. :)

Love all that fabric. Nothing like a good package, is there?

I love the combination of colors! Beautiful! Those books look wonderful - and one written by Sunshine Quilts - Great! Thanks for stopping by. I've been having trouble posting on my blog, but I wanted to thank you for the suggestion of using red on the Christmas quilts - Perfect!!!
God bless you!

What fun goodies -- I love my yoyo makers! They are a good on the go project (the flower ones too, though not as much as the circles!)
