Valori Wells Fabric Frenzy


Saturday was a great mail day! Last week, I think it was Tuesday, I visited the blog of Valori Wells when I saw it updated on my Bloglines subscription list. I started to get excited when I read that she had 18 packs of 8 fat quarters of her new fabric line, Olive Rose, to give away to the first 18 people to email her their snail mail address. I looked at the comments - only 13. I had a chance! But wait, what about the people who just emailed her and didn't leave a comment? And what about the fact that her post was done at 9.44 in the morning and it was now almost 4 in the afternoon here on the east coast? I had to give it a try anyway....and I was victorious! Woo Hoo!!

So here are the goodies I received - bundled up, and then spread out for your viewing pleasure :)
I have already used one of the fabrics, and have grand plans for the rest. It's lovely to work with - such a nice feel to it, obviously good quality quilting cotton. And best of all, the fabric is just perfectly suited to me - if you have looked at my blog then you know I'm not afraid of color - and that my kitchen is orange - so if anyone would be grateful to get orange fabric, it would be moi!

Thank you Valori!!!
