I was playing around on the Fresh Modern Quilts Flickr group the other day and came across a post written by Sara. She mentioned how she was interested in making this "Metro Link" quilt.
Any quilter knows that when you are making such a scrappy quilt like this, you'll rarely if ever have enough variety if you use only fabrics from you stash. So she put out a call, asking if anyone would be willing to swap some fabric scraps.
I thought what the hell, I'll give it a go. So I contacted her and we exchanged information. I packaged up my sandwich bag of scraps and sent it away. Yesterday I got a package in the mail and let me tell you, I feel kind of bad.
Sara sent me all of this wonderful fabric.
There is so much here...and yet I only sent her a sandwich bag. That's all we agreed upon.
I immediately contacted her and told her that there must be some sort of mistake and that I would mail her out another package this weekend with more scraps; but she insisted that she wasn't sure how much was enough so she over-packed.
Sara, Thank you soooo much. I hope you like the scraps that I sent you; but I'm sorry it couldn't compare to what you sent me :-(
