Turtle of the Day - a Random Act of Kindness

Yesterday I came home to find this in my mailbox. An online quilting friend had been hinting to our group that she had sent a mysterious package to someone. As I cannot think of any other reason why I would have received this - since I did not order it - I can only imagine that it is from her.

What a nice surprise!

What I can see of the fabrics are beautiful! I can almost smell the flowers - especially the Plumeria!!!! It would be a shame to cut them into small pieces -- I think they beg to be used someway as big blocks. We were in Hawaii almost 3 years ago when I was just beginning to get started quilting. I bought a few fat quarters and some patterns for Hawaiian quilting, but haven't used of it yet. And the turtle pattern is perfect for you!

Enjoy!!!

The turtle pattern is just perfect for you. It was fun to be in on Jen's little secret! Random acts of quiltyness are always fun. Someone from our group will be getting a package from me this week.

Yeah!!! I'm so glad you like it!! I don't even know how I got on her site. I clicked from blog to blog and her name sounded familiar and then I realized she wrote two books that I've read. Next thing I knew I was on her stores web site and I saw these turtles. Immediately I had them in my shopping cart and was onto our yahoo group to get your address. I had sent a note asking them to leave the reciept out. Then of course, I just couldn't keep my mouth shut and told Jill and Moneik. When you get a chance (I'm not sure what pictures all came with the pattern) go take a look at her page with that pattern on it, there's so many different ways that she used those turtles. They just seem SOOOOOOO adorable and sooo perfect for you!!
