It just happened that this accident happened right before my month for the Sunday Morning Quilt bee. I used the opportunity to request high five blocks from the Sunday Morning Quilts book in boy colors. One of the ladies suggested fussy cutting boy type things for the centers.
I have to say this quilt turned out to one of the most unique quilts I have ever put together. All the dinosaurs, trains, superman, cats, fish, rockets, and you name it made this quilt amazing. The ladies all did such a great job and I couldn't have put this quilt together with out their help and there is no way it would have been so varied and scrappy if I had just used my own stash.
However, the best feeling was giving the quilt to Amber. I have known/worked with Amber since my first year teaching (her second year). We both started same school site and years later ended up at a different site together again. She is a great person and I am so glad that I could give this special gift to her and her family. I know Jaden will enjoy this quilt and I am glad I was able to get it to him before Christmas.
