surprise fabric!

A few weeks ago my sister sent me a huge surprise care package of fabric. She was in Santa Cruz visiting a friend and, while she doesn't sew herself, couldn't resist popping into a local quilt shop and choosing tons of fabrics she knew i would love.

She even made a "quilt" out of color photocopies of the fabric for the wrapping paper.

Her birthday was last week, so to show my appreciation I used some of fabric she sent to make her a little quilted coaster set from Rashida Coleman-Hale's I Love Patchwork!. 

I absolutely adore the little elephants. Actually, I love all the fabrics - the Beach Mod by Monaluna prints are just so soft! - but what thrills me the most is discovering different colors and designs that I might not have chosen personally and being inspired to create new projects with them. Thanks sis!
