Mail box happiness

Look what I found in my mail box this morning:

It’s the siggie blocks from the swap Aussie-Quilter Cynthia hosted! I’m going to have so much fun playing with them :o) They are all so wonderful and pretty, and no one have picked the same fabrics, so these will be pieced into a great scrappy quilt. There are a lot of fabrics I can't remember having seen before, and then there are a few I have had in my stash at some point, either the exact same or in another colour, and then there are fabrics I remember having admired in the LQS or online :o) Thank you Cynthia for doing the swap! -and thank you to all you ladies who participated!

I do have a couple extras of my own siggie, so if anyone who didn’t join in the swap wants to swap one-on-one, please let me know :o)

Now I’m going to go play!!!

Oh such lovely siggies. If yours are there, mine are not far behind....

I am really looking forward to making this quilt. I want to add a few other friends to it as well to increase the size a bit..........

I received mine yesterday (17.04)as well. I am so happy that it went so well. I will try to get some more siggi blocks as well so that the quilt gets a bit bigger. Have fun and take care.

Dear Anne,
Hope you are doing fine:) I was just reading your lovely interesting blog and my eyes were locked into your siggie collection... yeap, I found my siggie there in, cool!
So wonderful to see all the siggies together w/in this New-style form, perhaps someday I could give it a try as well.
Enjoy & Lovie,
