Little Pink Peonies

Saturday, February 16, 2019

So, I've had this post written since November. But I haven't published it because when I mailed the quilt to my friend, USPS LOST it!! Fast forward three months. I've remade the quilt, mailed it, and my friend received the new one (phew!), so now I can share the saga with you here.

In early November, Hawthorne Supply Co. sent their weekly newsletter just to me. I mean, I'm sure it went to other people too, but really, it was meant just for me.

A friend of mine had a baby in October, and I just couldn't decide what kind of quilt to make her new little girl. However, when the Hawthorne newsletter featured a few of their own fall themed fabrics, I knew it was exactly what my friend would love!

This trendy floral whole cloth quilt with soft minky back is the perfect baby quilt for a girl!

The first challenge for the 2019 Island Batik ambassadors is to make a mini quilt. And it just so happens that the third challenge for Project Quilting is to make something bigger than 9" x 16". So it was the perfect time for a two-fer!

I am so excited to share with you that I'm an Island Batik ambassador again this year!

This is my third year as an ambassador, and I already know this year's going to be the best one yet!

The first box of the year (we will get a second box of goodies in the summer) arrived a couple weeks ago, but this time there was a BIG surprise - an equally as large box from Accuquilt!

When the box showed up on my porch, I seriously had no idea it was coming or what was in it!
