Fab Little Quilt Indeed

First off, the winners from the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Giveaway are: Julie C, the momma, and Blue.Ridge.Girl. You three should already have an email from me in your inbox. Congratulations! And a big Thanks to all who entered and left me such nice comments!
 
 Now onto other things...
I have been impatiently waiting for my FLiQS quilt to arrive for a few weeks now.  Seems I got the mail date a bit wrong, which means I was the first to send out my quilt and one of the last to receive one.  That was a hard wait. Thankfully my wait is over!

FLiQS Quilt Received from Donna

This beauty was made for me by Donna.  I was so blown away when I opened up my package that I might have even let out an audible gasp. She incorporated so many of the things I said I loved: orange peels, pluses, low volume, tiny piecing, Denyse Schmidt, and Heather Ross.

  Upclose of FLiQS Received

Each square is a mere 1" finished with the whole quilt measuring 24" square.
I love it SO much!
Even the back is cool.

FLiQS + Extras Received!!

She sent along some fab little extras as well.
I'm telling you she stalked me very well.  See those fabrics?  They are perfect for my new bee.

  Chicken Buttons

And chicken buttons!
She definitely did her homework.

Again, Thanks to Donna!  It is a treasure, for sure.
Next week I'll show my new additions hanging with their friends.
