A Wonderful Addition to the Stash!

Friday, I came home to find that the mailman had left me a box from Connecting threads!  Oh YUM!!!

A few weeks ago, I was completely thrilled to learn that I had won a fabulous giveaway from Connie at Quilting by the River for a Light & Bright Batiks Sampler collection from Connecting Threads!  I waited on pins and needles, anxious for it to arrive, and much to my surprise and delight, it didn't take very long at all!!! =^..^=

There are 24 batik fat quarters in the Sampler, in some of the most gorgeous colors you have ever seen!  I'll just share the eye candy today and let the fabric do the talking :*)

I want to THANK Connie so much for hosting this amazing giveaway for Connecting Threads!  I couldn't be more delighted!!!  I haven't yet decided how these beauties are going to be used in a quilt, but you'll be the first to know when I do! =^..^=

And for the Stash Report this week.... * Drum Roll * .... I have a finish!!!!  By the end of the day I will have Raney Days & Mondays completely pieced and ready to quilt - yoohoo!!!  I'll post a final picture on the Display Wall Monday post tomorrow.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out :*)  

Thanks to all of you who have commented and encouraged me on this project!

  1. Wow Teresa, what a great prize - looks just like you. I've been keeping a private stash report after reading yours earlier in the year and I'm happy to see you keep enhancing like I do. My husband says I'm just preparing for an increase in fabric prices - love the way he thinks!
