New Toys and Packing

A very generous blogfriend offered me a chance to purchase some Accuquilt GO! dies she was selling.  I jumped at the chance and chose a few from her listing.  Since we live on opposite sides of the country and the dies needed to be mailed, she said she would add some odds and ends as packing around the dies.  The mailman was eagerly anticipated and the package not only did not disappoint, it was quilter fun with a cherry on top!

The dies I bought included Winding Ways, squares in 3.5 and 5", and 3.5 x 6.5 rectangle.  Looking forward to playing with those in the future. Stuffed around the dies were several lovely Fall panels with extra matching fabric, an adorable pile of completed basket blocks with many more cut and ready to assemble, bias cut handles and all...

 ...AND more fabric, 3 spools of thread, stitching papers, a stack of batik precut strips and MORE finished blocks.

These bullseye blocks have some of my favorite reds and greens and lots of repro prints.  Many thanks to Mary of Quilt Hollow for the best package filler I ever received!  All will be well used and loved :)

Looks like you're in for a lot of fun time soon. I wonder how you like the whole die cutting thing? Has it been worth the investment do you think, you obviously want to use it since you're buying more template tningies.

You are going to have F*U*N !! Great packing by Mary. I can't think of any better way to keep those dies protected for the cross-country journey. Lucky Annie -- generous Mary.
