A happy week with a surprise

It is finally spring! at least that is what the calendar says, but as for our weather, still winter, but they keep saying that is going to get warmer, temps are supposed to get to plus 4 *C this week , we will see.

I had a good week , busy but good, At work a sewing sister decided to clear out some of her stash of fabric and asked me if I would like some, I said ok....Yes I know I am on a fabric fast, and do not need any more fabric, but could not help myself and said yes,, This was last week and did not think anymore of it, well Monday comes and she says she has a small box for me, she mostly quilts  but has not been sewing much and knows that I have started to quilt, I say thank you and start work. the workday ends and I meet her at her car, ,,, She has a huge box, full of quilting fabric, good thing I had a ride home, no way I could have gotten this home on a city bus!

The box is full of flat quarters most with the tags still on! and a few scraps from her projects, One project was a panel with cats playing, with the binding all ready to go, all as I have to do is find a fabric in my stash for backing and quilt it, I was so happy and touched by her gift to me I have  made her a thank you present, a mug rug using some scraps that were in the box, all brown tones,, made it Monday night and gave it to her Tuesday at work, she loved it!!!

As for what else I have been up too, I made another mug rug, and played with making a few test blocks

Test blocks(can you spot my mistake)

Cat panel that I love
Well that it all for this week happy sewing to all

What a great box of fabric! Fabric fast rules are meant to be broken for a box like this...lucky you...J

Oh my what lovely quilting you do! :) I am going to get ideas, but probably won't do such a nice job on whatever I do with the ideas!
