    You make me smile. :D Lucky you with the 5 boxes of fabric. Have fun!

    This would be a good time to start a quilt diary.

    I've heard of quilts "talking" to their creators, there's a few ladies here who have written of it happening, and it seems the quilts sure knew what they were talking about! (I'm just a wee bit jealous, since I've not had any such luck.)

    Cheer up! With all of that lovely fabric and the stuff you inherited, you've got MORE quilts anxious to speak to you!

    What a sweet and endearing gift for the new little one. Don't forget to attach a label on the back , so that she will always now who it came from and when.

    In the fabrics my Aunt sent over there was some Ice Cream Cones with PINK Icecream. Not enough to do anything with BUT an idea popped in my head...... Use it for a label. After I get it done, I'll show you what I did
