Day one of thankful week!

Today i am thankful for conspirators..

remember these blocks?  


well they, with blocks from jacey and sara, became this...

Collaboration Quilt
sara emailed us wonky girls a few months ago while the wonky bee was winding down asking us if we were interested in making something awesome for our pregnant members...  of course we said yes.  
we decided we would all make a few 8 inch blocks and would send them all to sara to put it together.
she did an amazing job on this quilt!  and she made faux piping on the binding...  brilliant!  such a great addition to an already perfect quilt. 

it went to melissa.

do you see that piping... so cute...

isn't melissa's daughter adorable snuggling under it?  
seriously, adorable!

the back of the quilt is just as cute as the front.

and my favorite part of the whole thing... 
the label.  
she traced our names from the notes we had sent to her and embroidered it to the label.  
aaaaawwwwweeeee.  i love it.
it makes me happy!

  9. It's such a fun quilt and somehow looks so warm with the bright colours against the brown. And I love the contrasting piping, too.
