Double the Pleasure

Today was a great day. I received a double surprise. Kurt sent me his block which is beyond the usual-simple and yet very striking.I love the combination of shapes and colors. My grand-daughter has already claimed it as hers.
But that wasn't all that was in the package. Kurt's terrific wife, Tiffany, sent me a mini-quilt as a thank you for making her husband happy. I am so glad that  he likes the block I made.
I love both my surprises as do my grand-daughter and husband.  My husband says that the quilt is just the right size for a sleep mat for Lil' Sister. I think NOT!!! It is going on my desk top right next to my computer for me to enjoy every day.

I'm so glad you like them! :D

Kurt was worried about the block, because you really did such an amazing job on his. Thanks for being such an awesome swapper for him!! :D

The block from Kurt is wonderful - I love the design. The mini quilt is so cute. How old is Lil' Sister - she looks so tiny.
