the Wall Quilt from Debbie Mumm!!:-)










Today, I've received a package from Debbie Mumm, the famous artist whose line of fabrics are wellknown around the world! What a Cheerful Beautiful quilt!! Amazing!! I've been her fan since early 90s', cuz I make cloth dolls, and her fabrics are just right for my "country" dolls. I also like patchwork, using her fabrics to make things, incld. small coasters. For last 20 years, I've collected her mug cups, plates, tea pots, tin cans, rubber stamps, buttons, etc., etc., and I even cross stiched 2 wall hangings of her design! I've sewn her christmas tree skirt, using her panel fabric. I have her notebooks, used her calendar, pocket planner, wallpaper on my computer, bought her art clip CD ... the list goes on. Now you all know that I've been a BIG fan! What I love about her designs are that they give me Warm Cozy feeling inside, even I lived in tropical islands where it never gets cold. lol :-) Anyways, so, because me being her big fan, she is on my facebook (meaning, I "like" her and I get her posts time to time). She used to have a blog, but she closed it, and later, she opened her facebook. I was very happy to see her there again. About 6 weeks ago, I saw her post, asking us to participate the survey, so I did. I usually take survey of the companies I like, hoping that would help the companies. I don't recall that she/her company mentioned about Giveaway for the participant of this survey, which was even short in my opinion, and her having over 2,000 fans on her facebook, I totally forgot about I even took that survey. Two days ago, I read her post saying that her staff was looking for ME, cuz I WON her signed wall quilt from taking that survey!!! I posted on her post that it was ME! Anyways, we had a couple of postings and I received an e-mail from the customer service rep. of her company that he was mailing it next day, and I received it today (9/2) from the westcoast (WA)!! I was amazed how quick they processed it, and how quick it was delivered, and inside of the box, as you can see, a REAL PRESENT!! When I opened the box, I saw the envelope, sitting on this PRESENT. I opened it, and it was a message from Debbie, as you can see. Yes, I AM EVIE BUNNY, on facebook :-) They wrapped her quilt in her fabric, and tied around it with her another pretty yellow fabric! I unwrapped the fabric, and inside, I found the Beautiful & cheerful flower wall quilt!! The size of this quilt is 30" x 30", larger than I thought! The details are Amazing!! You can see the back of this Amazing quilt on one of the pictures too. And she wrote my name, and signed on the corner!!! I will treasure this Beautiful quilt forever!! ... my recent project using her fabrics are a coster (luv making coasters!), and the background for my card, instead of using the paper, with the Coffee theme design! I love to buy her fabrics at my fav. Joann! :-) I still feel like I'm Dreaming... lol! :-) ps. I wanted to take better pictures with better background/wall. Some of you know that I live here temporary, and unfortunately I don't have nice open space for better picture shots. lol...
