Thanks for the chance, Maureen! These fabrics would be amazing for a VERY overdue baby quilt I should be working on right now. I've been working on some bee blocks this week and put together a baby quilt top yesterday. I feel like I've been productive lately, which is a good thing. 

Congratulations!!! I will be in touch shortly!
