12w3d - My quilt came!!

I am part of GP Quilters, which is a group of GP girls who make a combined "community quilt". We make a few squares of a pre-determined color or design, then mail them to one person who puts the squares together into a quilt. We decided that the quilts would go to members who got their BFP's. I was the first one to get a BFP after we started the group, so Moo told me I would be getting our first quilt, the red one.

So a few weeks go by and the quilt doesn't come. Moo asked for my address again and got very impatient about me checking the mail. (Love you, Moo!). Well, today was the day and somehow Moo knew exactly when my mail came and told me to go get it. I did, and there was my quilt. Except...not at all the quilt I was expecting. The girls got all sneaky on me and made a Bee Quilt!! It is the cutest thing I've ever seen. I was so shocked - I started crying (you know, blame it on the pregnancy hormones). I am just in awe over the kindness of these women. What an amazing gift. Here are some pics of their handiwork:
