HAPPY DANCE

I am doing the Happy Dance.  I received a surprise package in the mail from Mary of Quilt Hollow.  Look what was inside.
A Schnibble quilt made with Kansas Troubles fabric.  My kind of colors!  Love the scalloped edge on this quilt. The quilting design has butterflies in it.  Mary does such nice longarm quilting.  I think I must have been a very good girl to have received this.  A big thank you to you, Mary.

I have been doing some of the machine stitching on "Land of the Free".  Here are the three blocks I finished last week.
You can see the blocks laid out on this post.  Still lots of stitching to do.

I have more to share with you but lost one of my photos and have to retake it.  And I have a couple projects nearing the finish.  I will be back soon to show you more.
