Suprise In The Mail!

One of the nice things about carvers and quilters, is their sharing and swapping. I am involved in several swapping events in both carving and quilting. This means that I am always either sending or receiving something carving and quilting related in the mail. A few days ago I received a package in the mail, that was not part of a swap. I opened the package and found some real nice fabric, along with a card that said "for your stash". The "present" was from Lani, who follows this blog. The fabric is of a style that I really like, and will most certainly use in a small quilt. I do however, have a confession to make. I was going to refer to the fabric as "fat quarters", but it occurred to me that I wouldn't know a fat quarter from a chicken quarter. In any event, thank you Lani.

Fat Quarter: 18" x the width of the fabric cut in half...usually 18 x 22.

You get 4 fat quarters out of a yard of fabric.

Thanks Holee, I won't promise I'll remember that, but at least I know where I have it....I think we are born with a certain amount of space in our brains to remember things. Judging by the number of new things that I don't remember...mines full up..
