What I got in the mail!!

Before I show any quilt show/fabric shopping pictures I must post about what I found in my mail box yesterday!

This quilt was sent by San - Gypsy Quilter - for little Hunter. I just love the yellow and blue and it is such a lovely quilt! How sweet of San to send it for Hunter. It missed getting here before they left by just a few day - that is Canada Post for you. I had no idea she was sending it for him. I remember seeing it posted on her blog. It has just the softest and prettiest yellow heart flannel on the back.

And it has a label -- something that I always forget to do. San sent the label separate so I could give the quilt a wash and fluff before the label went on the quilt -- that is such a great idea for a baby quilt - after spending time all shut up in a box and shipped across the country.

It really made my day yesterday to open her box. She also sent a bunch of flannel bits and pieces for me to make some more little quilts for the NICU. I will make some more this fall -- after September comes and goes.

I had a great 3 days of quilting related activities this past weekend. I shopped too much, ate too much and hopefully walked just enough to wear off what I ate! The quilt show in Seattle was great - wonderful new venue!!
