Rescued from the dust

Look who I found under a pile of dust bunnies!

It's my 365 Challenge, the ultimate sampler.
The basket with all the fabric I used so far also came out of its hiding place.

In this drawer, the smaller pieces of fabric are waiting their turn to shine in a block.

Yep, sometimes, I use this old home-made tall dresser as a cutting table. The height of it helps my posture. But I digress.

While searching in my blog the last post mentioning the 365 Challenge quilt, I noticed that some blocks were never properly presented to you. Let's start with them, shall we.

June 29 - Contrary Wife - 41 pieces

June 30 - Beggar's Block - 57 pieces

The total of pieces for June's blocks (the biggest month of the year)  - 1455
Bringing the grand total to 4997 pieces. And only half of the quilt is done!

Now for the newest blocks.

Maple Leaf - 15 pieces and
Clown's Choice - 24 pieces for July first and second. These are only 3.5 inches

July 3 - Temple Court - 45 pieces

July 4 - July Fourth - 17 pieces

Oops! Not done yet. :^D

A little while back, I won a bag of scraps from Julie at Julie K Quilts. Yeah me! I received it this week and hold me down somebody ... WOW!!!

 It was no small package! Look at the shipping price on this box.  Yep, it's a big box.

 And it was filled to the brim with scraps! Heaven!

So full of gorgeous scraps. AHHHHhhhhhh! It's so exciting!

Some lovely flannel, (I found more at the bottom of the box), and 5, (yes, 5) lovely fat quarters. Ah! Pinch me!  Notice the lighthouse piece please, you will see it again soon.
Thank you soooooo much Julie. You know I will use every single piece there is in this box. You have made my week! ♥ ♥ ♥

That's all for now.
But I'll be back. ;^)
