What's in The Box?

Well, I searched and searched and found fabric in the box! I brought a total of 10 bolts, mostly blenders as you can see from the picture. A black and white to make DS's quilt and Uncle M's quilt. The checkerboard will also go into Uncle M's quilt. Browns, tans and creams for the 4 patches I make to go with the ISPY squares. A medium tan for a movie quilt for the downstairs living room. The green swirls for my niece's birthday quilt, stars for QOV borders and the plaid is for backing on kids' quilts I like to donate. I also brought one spool of rye beige Permacore thread for Valerie and some note cards. All in all, purchases I plan to use in the next few months. I did cut about a yard off the black Moda Marble Mate to wash to go into a quilt I'm working on! Another friend recently upgraded her Gammill Classic with a Statler Stitcher so she gifted me a ton of pantographs that are in her computer now and she wanted to share her hard copies with me! How great is that?! I might even use a different panto than Popcorn. :) I also was gifted the Trip Around the World pattern by my very good friend, who lives in Colleyville...Thank You! This pattern is pretty trick as you construct it using 9 patches and I am all about squares and rectangles when I sew :) very few triangles :)
