The early bird catches the .....quilt top?

You all know that my Dad spoils me rotten right?
Well, a month or two ago when I went to visit him and my Mum he handed me a yellow envelope.
Guess what was inside???



A heap of charm packs. Not just any charm packs, these were Cosmo Cricket charm packs! They were a mix of Early Bird and Tailor Made.
How awesome is that for a pressie!?!
Yep, my Dad not only thought to get me fabric as a surprise gift but searched for one of my fav designers!!! Isn't he the bestest!!!
Why am I talking about these charms in the past tense?
They have now become a quilt top. A HUGE quilt top that I can't wait to quilt and cuddle.



Now I'll add Nick to the pic for a size reference.






( Nick is 44" tall)
I can't wait to get this one finished!!!
Thank you Dad!!!

I love your "measuring tape" there! Quilt top looks awesome, and hurray for a dad that buys you fabric!!

Um, you have a super cool dad. I'm trying to imagine my dad buying fabric for me. No, can't picture it. Even cooler that those fabrics came from my little Etsy shop and that I get to see what was made with them:)

I haven't heard anything about the adoption, is there a problem with the paperwork?

Great quilt top.....how are you going to quilt it?
You can always use my machine if you like.
