I never blogged about it, but totally meant to! But my dear, dear friend Melissa (who's the one responsible for getting me into this whole quilt world) sent a quilt for Tucker that is just absolutely beautiful! I was so surprised when I received this, because she had already sent about a bajillion receiving blankets and burp cloths for him, so I wasn't expecting anything else from her. I think she even mentioned a quilt to me in an email, but I brushed it off, because I thought she was just saying she wanted to make a quilt for him, not that she was currently working on a quilt for him. Did I mention, she just had baby #3 also? Yeah, I was so not expecting this!
If you would like to read about Melissa's story behind this quilt, you can do that here.
I love everything about this quilt - the colors, the linen, the design, the quilting, the binding! It's pretty perfect.
After I got that quilt I was thinking, "Man, Tucker is one lucky baby! He has a quilt from me, from my Bee, and from Melissa. Amazing!"
So imagine my surprise when he received yet another quilt! I saw this box on my doorstep the other day, and realized it was from Jenn, who I know from the LAMQG. A while back, she had sent some clothes for my kids that her kids had outgrown (tons of Hello Kitty clothes means my girls are very happy). So I was thinking she was probably sending more clothes. But I wondered, could there be a quilt in there?
I was right on both accounts - more clothes for the kids AND a quilt! It was a collaborative quilt from some of my LAMQG buds. I think when I received both of these quilts I had tears in my eyes. To receive a quilt, knowing how much time and effort goes into them, and just that someone thought to even put that much time and effort into a quilt for one of my kids - I was overwhelmed!
