Package of Scraps that I Won!

Only quilters get excited about a package of someone else's scraps that are sent to them in the mail.  Lori of Humble Quilts (here) send me some, and 
it made me so happy.  I felt like this:

There were three "shirtings" fabrics in the lot, and I am working on an Indigo and shirting Dear Jane.  Here they are in new blocks:

Isn't this one a pretty fabric?

I'm in a group of ladies from Williamsburg that are all beginning the Dear Jane quilt and we meet together once a month.  I'm so happy to be sharing this journey with all of them. Below are the blocks I have made this month:

There are lots of other beautiful fabrics in Lori's gift, and I am closing with a picture of the whole lot, spread out together.  Thank you, thank you, thank you Lori!

I'm linking up today with Esther Aliu's linkup of Works in Progress on Wednesdays.  She is working on a beautiful red and white piece (here)

What a wonderful bag of treasures! I find lots of freedom in using other people's scraps--more so than my own. I wonder why that is?

I love others scraps! Luckily I have two friends that share theirs but now that I've moved I'm afraid they will share with others and not only me! Selfish of me, I know!
