The quilt pieces are flying in

Literally, they are.

I am truly amazed at how the timing is always bang on when I get these pieces. We've been pretty lucky this winter, but today, we got our first blast. It's been cold, snowy and worst of all icy. Nothing is worse than ice on the sidewalks and roads, makes for a very treacherous commute. Well, I got home and wouldn't you know it, I got two more pieces for the quilt from my October 2006 DTC group.

This piece is from Lisa and Craig in Ohio, it has little ladybugs and little white flowers on it. It's very cute!

This piece is from Mary Beth and Joost all the way in Holland! This is our first cross Atlantic piece. It has a windmill, tulips, a little Dutch boy and girl and a little cow. Very sweet.

Yesterday we also received two more pieces from Shawn's friends and their daughter. It's Strawberry Shortcake, talk about a blast from the past! The pink one is from Tara and the green one is from Khal and Sarah.

Thank you so much! We love all the pieces, they will make a beautiful addition to the quilt.
