Look What Came in the Mail!

I talk about my best friend, Terry, quite a bit. In fact, she is probably in just about every post that I write. Let's just say that Terry is to me what Pam and Elizabeth are to each other. The only difference is that Terry has no computer and she has no blog. That's okay! She is a fantastic quilter, decorator, painter, best friend, and she has a long arm machine quilting business. Who could ask for more? She also used to own a quilt shop, which means her studio is fabric heaven!

Thursday was Terry's birthday. I didn't get to see her because I can't drive, and we had an ice storm. However, I was able to do some shopping at The Fat Quarter Shop, and it came yesterday. I just had to share! The Fat Quarter Shop does some quick shipping! I love that!

Terry's favorite colors are greens, purples, golds, browns, and orangy reds. She also likes polka dots, paisley's, and anything a little on the whimsical side. I thought the "Za Za" group from Moda would be perfect for her. I was going to buy her a quilt book that uses Jelly Rolls, but without being able to see what's inside, I bought her this pattern. Of course I had to buy me that pattern, too! Both Jelly Rolls will go to Terry so that she can have enough strips to make this quilt. I'm sure she'll have it whipped up in no time!

Take care!



  1. Its the greatest thing to have a friend you can be yourself with completely (other than family). I have a friend, Laura, like that. She and I can do anything together and have a good time.

  2. That's going to make a beautiful quilt! Isn't it fun shopping for friends who also love to quilt?

  3. What a terrific gift! There's nothing better than Jelly Rolls...except great friendships!

  4. Gotta agree there, friends and quilts all go together!
