Little Quilt

I finished this little quilt Saturday night. I made it for our very good neighbors.

We live in a very big city, but our suburb feels more like a much smaller place. We and our closest neighbors have lived here and been good friends for a long time. I am so thankful for our neighborhood.

It means a lot to have friends who love you and look out for you. And isn't it a good thing that there are still places like that - even in a big city.

The little tumblers portion of the quilt did not grow very big, so I surrounded it with this sweet, homey looking little print.

And I stitched a little extra love into it. Mr. Sweetie Pie and I delivered it Sunday afternoon. They liked it!
It's a beautiful day here, though it will be hot later. Got to get out and get some errands done now. I hope your day is simply wonderful!
Hugs and kisses,

Elaine, the quilt is wonderful and what a sweet gift. I hope you got all your errands done; seems like that's all I do lately. Hugs!

Elaine, all your quilts are so pretty. Is the first one the dissapearing 9 patch? It is a gorgeous gift.
