Due Date

The movie with our quilt in it is now in theaters!  Gina went & saw it and took a picture from the 2nd row!  Someone said you can see the quilt in a trailer, and also a movie clip from the Today Show, but we haven't been able to track it down.  Email us or post the link in a comment on our blog or Facebook page to tell us where it is if you find it online!
