Whimsical Hexagons

Happy day! Two very close friends of mine were recently blessed with a baby girl; however this story is so beautiful and means so much to me, that I feel the need to share it. 
Four years ago, this couple adopted a beautiful baby boy.  At the time of the adoption, they agreed to be put on a registry to accept babies that have been abandoned or given up after birth at any hospital in the county. 
Years passed and they decided that their family had settled into a comfortable routine and they were happy with only one child.  They decided that they were going to remove themselves from the registry. 
Just before they made the call, they received a call from social services telling them that they had been chosen by a young mother to accept her newborn babygirl! 
She chose them because they could not have children of their own and they both have careers in the education field.  She wanted her little girl to have a better life than she could provide and she knew they would be able to give it her!  *tear*
So, to help them celebrate I asked them to choose some fabric that I could use to make a baby quilt for their preciosa!
They chose Whimsy by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics.  I used a simple little pattern to make these hexagons that went together easily and quickly.
