A Special Very Gift

On Friday I received a very special gift for Baby girl. It is from a group of ladies I swap FQ's with every couple of months. Each lady supplied a FQ(fat quarter) and our group leader Marilyn sewed them all into this lovely quilt.

I was so thrilled to receive something so very lovely and handmade.
I rarely receive handmade gifts, so this was extra special.
Plus Marilyn made it shabby chic with roses because she knows how much I love them:)

A Close up.
Click on the pictures so you can get a better look at the detail, she hand quilted it!

The other cool thing is these ladies and I have become friends through our swapping but have never met in person. Two of the ladies live about 30 minutes from our old home town of Napa, CA. When we get back, I plan to meet up with them for a quilt store trip!

A rose close up, love this technique, and think it would be adorable to make these roses for accenting onesies or other clothes.

In a day or two I will be posting photos of other gifts I have received for baby girl.
