Garden Party!

Eeek!  Look what I discovered in my mailbox!!!
Garden Party from Splendor Falls

Can you believe it?  That's 12 quarter cuts that Mary of Splendor Falls sent me in exchange for those milkglass dishes I cleared out of my new fabric buffet.  How appropriate right?  Less dishes/more GORGEOUS fabric!!!  Thank-you, Mary - I am so very blessed!

Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party collection was discontinued awhile before I began sewing.  I've admired it a swatch at a time on screen, but never seen it like this in good company.  Honestly, it blows me away.  No wonder it's Ruth's all time favorite collection.  Now, the question is, should I keep collecting?

I know for sure that I'll be sewing with this soon.  I'm thinking of a fabric cube for my sewing shelf, a pin cushion and either a purse or sewing machine cover.  I think I can do all that with what I have....

P.S.  I've never won a fabric giveaway, though I've entered a gazillion.  This totally makes up for it!


  1. Ooooh! What a lucky lady you are. Garden party is one of my favorites. I have backed several of my quilts with one of my favorite prints but sadly my stash is dwindling... :(

  2. I am so happy you are happy! Hooray! I just love my new/old little white dishes; thank you!!

  3. How awesome! That's why bloggers are so amazing. My husband is continually surprised at the generousity of fellow crafters and is almost jealous of the fun mail I get. I really love the saturated colors that AMH uses in her fabrics. I have *yet* to get any of her latest collection.

  4. That is my kind of mail !!! You must have been hootin & hollerin for quite some time after opening that. Carolina

  5. Yes, exactly! Oh, I love that you all UNDERSTAND.

  6. lucky!!! i love garden party!
