Quilt Adoration and Auntie Appreciation

My husband's auntie is just the sweetest soul!  Just completely out of the blue she sent our little family a gorgeous quilt.  For no reason!  Maybe just because she loves us!  

(Or maybe she just wants to soften up  my husband so he takes it easy on her in their Fantasy Football League.)

This is one of my favorite squares....

And these are really cute too.....

And who could resist these......

Okay, this is my favorite.....

Ooooooh!  Look at the border.  Two kinds of polka dots and even checks at this corner....

The cuteness continues......

And how about this personalized label....

I can't just stop there.  

Auntie Quilting Bee also made a beautiful quilt when Baby Bee was born.

I'm getting all teary-eyed thinking about our little itsty-bitsy Baby Bee laying and snuggling with this quilt.


I hope you can see the vintage inspired fabric for this quilt.

Auntie Quilting Bee sure knows what I love!

And I can't leave you with just that....

Auntie Quilting Bee made this vintage inspired quilt too.  
It hangs in our entry.  What a warm welcome it gives to our little bee family.

Don't you wish you had an Auntie Quilting Bee?

If I could, I'd give you all an Auntie Quilting Bee!

I feel very blessed to have her in my life!

And guess what?  
My mother in law (Auntie Quilting Bee's sister) used to quilt too.  
One of these days I'll share the great quilts she made for me.  
I have the cutest school one from her!

I'm sharing my quilts today over at Cindy's 

Thanks for buzzin' in.  I'll see what I can do about finding each and every one of you an Auntie Quilting Bee!  Well, I WISH I could - do my intentions count?

I hope you have a marvelous weekend.  It's my birthday Friday so I'm looking forward to a fun, productive, relaxing, catch up on all the chores weekend.  Oh dear, I'm not sure even my birthday fairy could pull all that off!

  6. I love quilts. I have a few my Mom made and they are really special to me.

  7. I'm laughing because that's what I always want for my birthday, too - a clean house! Maybe we should opt for a weekend AWAY in someone else's clean place! =]

    These quilts are GORGEOUS!!! What a generous Auntie. May I borrow her? and, how perfect is that quilt for you??? A ME lovers delight! Thank you for sharing. You know, I've got my fabric "fix" for the week, now, and feel MUCH much better!
