oh happy day...

box of delights!
leaning tower of summersville
today was the day i've been waiting for...after sending one box of handprinted samples across the ocean to moda headquarters approximately one year ago, to frantic emailing back and forth, to having samples sent directly to me from the mill then add in a month of frantic stitching with said samples and throw in one exciting trip to houston quilt market plus a LOT of waiting, SUMMERSVILLE HAS LANDED! this delicious box of 5 yard pieces and precuts arrived just as i was leaving to help out at a school function. talk about timing!

 i haven't had a chance to process everything yet, but when i do, i think we'd better have a giveaway, don't you? give me the weekend, and i'll see you back here on monday, okay? i've got some serious stroking to do.

This is some gorgeous fabric! Thanks so much sharing! If I ever had a fabric line, I would probably suffer over the name, but the first thing that popped into my head was Summit Valley, based on where I live. Thanks again!
