Rainbow Scrappy Saturday

A few more blocks--


The last of the reds mixed with some blacks and gray.  A few light monkey wrenches for variety.  Please see what everyone has been working on at SoScrappy.

Thursday a priority mail box was waiting for me.




You can see I opened it immediately!  Inside was a LOT of fabric!



Look at all of it!  A wonderful variety, lots of fondling and petting of fabric!  I was as happy as a cat in a bed of catnip!  How much was in the box?  I weighed it--9#--or close to 30 yards.  Why did I get it?  A challenge with a few friends.  We sent one person three fabrics to be used in a quilt.  The three I received are these--


Oranges and browns and golds and greens!  Some of my FAVORITE colors.   I especially love paisley.  The challenge is to use the three fabrics in a project.  It has to be at least 40" square.  That's it.  Isn't it a great challenge??!!   And since I didn't pay anything for this fabric I won't put it on my stash report.  Don't worry, I bought plenty of fabric last week.

I get the part about the challenge, but I missed how you ended up with a BOX FULL of fabric. Whatever the case, congrats on your influx of scrappy goodness!!
