Nifty shirtings

Boy, oh boy, am I a happy quilter today.  I received one of the best gifts that a fabriholic could ever receive.  Lee Ann most generously offered to share some of her shirtings with me for use in reproducing my great-grandmother's quilt.   It appears that she studied the pictures of the quilt and chose exactly the perfect fabrics.  And I might add, fabrics that I have been searching for and have yet to find.  It was a project that I had intended to begin after Christmas, but now , the temptation to begin ASAP it going to be really difficult to ignore. 

Is this not the coolest ever?  Thank you so much Lee Ann.
Just goes to show that quilters are the best.

She's a generous lovely person! She shared her goodies with me too!
have fun putting your fabulous quilt together!

Will you strip it the same or will you "make 15 minute fabric"?
