Fun For Friday - 1st Class Mail - Basket Challenge

Happy HOT Friday from NJ!

I received this fun Birthday package from Diane.  A beautiful book, wonderful patriotic blue toile' fabric and a post card hand made by Libby - Thank you so much Diane!

The book is lovely and has so many wonderful traditional quilts.  The toile' I will use for something special and here is the back of the post card - too cute!

I won last month's drawing from Libby.  It reminded me of the ad "if is says Libby, Libby, Libby on the Label, Label, Label I will love it, love it, love it on my sewing table, table, table...."

What a pretty little bundle!

A special kerchief for my favorite puppy - and other unexpected surprises along with her incredible photo note cards.  Thank you so much, Libby!

Look at this pretty girl.

As promised; here are the basket challenge quilts.  I've grouped them by month - enjoy!

here is the challenge fabric -

My friend, Susan H., won viewers choice!

What a great group of talent!  It is so fun to see how everyone interpreted the month and basket theme.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!
