Mail Call Monday (on a Tuesday) - PQ Winner & (Egyptian) Eye LOVE

Welcome to another edition of Mail Call Monday!!  Yes, it's Tuesday.  I have NO IDEA where Monday went!  There's no excuse for missing the post (again), but look what I got...

An email from Kim...

@ Project QUILTING, regarding the winners from PQ13.4 (two episodes ago).  The final challenge is going on now if YOU want a chance to get in on the prize action for this season.

Here's what she had to say...

Congratulations! I'm thrilled to let you know that out of the 190 entries you were chosen to win the EZ-Print Lite Heat n Bond Sheets & Heat N Bond Extra Firm Fusible Interfacing from ThermoWeb.

You can see the post here if you're interested - https://kimlapacek.com/2022/02/winners.html

Please send me your address so I can get your prize in the mail to you.

Thank you for joining in the PQ fun and supporting my challenge.

My response:

Thanks SEW much, Kim!!

Sorry it's taken this long to get around to posting...

Here's the package that arrived:

My prize package is from Thermoweb:

Kim also included her business card and a fun sticker:

Thanks, Kim! and thank you to ThermoWeb for sponsoring Project QUILTING!  The EZ-Print Lite Heat n Bond Sheets & Heat N Bond Extra Firm Fusible Interfacing is not something I've used before.  I look forward to trying both of these products on future project.

A few days later...

I got the following package from my friend Kathy @ Kathy's Quilting Blog:

She was working on her Gobble, Gobble quilt when I sent her the following email:

While you have Egyptian Eye on the frame, could I get you to take a piece of wax paper and a sharpie and trace the design for me? It looks like it might be easy enough to use as a panto. What do you say, Kathy?

Thanks in advance for considering it? I would really appreciate it and could either reimburse you for the postage or make something for you in exchange. 
Your choice...

Kathy is SEW sweet that she refused to charge me for the postage.  Instead of tracing the design, which would have worked perfectly for me, she decided that it would be easier if she copied the Circlelord template board.

Here is the Egyptian Eye template board:

I wanted to buy this template board, but didn't feel comfortable spending the money at the time that I first became aware of it.  Unfortunately, the owner retired and his template boards are no longer available.  I didn't find out until I was (finally) ready to make my purchase that I was too late!  The business was already closed.  :o((

Kathy has since finished her Stay Centered quilt with the same design and as a bonus, she included copies of this loopy design, as well:

It should be a fun art project when I get around to lining up the "panto" pieces.  Thank you again, Kathy!  I haven't forgotten your gift.

Until next time...
What's in YOUR mail???


  1. Congratulations on your win! I haven't used that product before either, but it will be fun to try something new - maybe for applique? And the package from Kathy was a nice surprise, too! I also don't know a thing about pants, but I'm guessing you're hoping to use it on your long arm. Those both look like they'll make great quilting designs.

  2. Well you certainly got some nice happy mail, Joy. I am sure you will put both of your gifts to great use. Happy quilting.

  3. Have fun putting the new items to good use!

  4. Congrats on the win and have fun with the new panto's. 41 blocks of 56 completed for the memory quilt.... progress.
