    She kept apologizing for "dumping" these things on me! I was like NO! It's like Christmas! :) She's a very experienced quilter and does all kinds of things like making bags, quilts etc. etc. I was so tickled to get what she gave me. I have pictures of just ONE of the bags of items. The other things were flannel, clothing material, Little Scottish Doggie material with other matching material to go with it, embroidery stuff etc. These were my exciting bag! :) She said she had done swaps and just didn't ever figure she would use these blocks or anything. She said you wouldn't believe what I have! So, Thanks for looking. ;) A few of the larger pieces will become little doll quilts for Mary-Grace and her little friend Rachel. I have seven pictures.... Oh, and one of my favorites-Fleece Cubs Material! :) I was born in Chicago! :)

    Just noticed the bottom purple one here has a section that is turned wrong. Funny how you see things when you take a picture of it.

    Really I was thinking of taking the cute part out and putting it into something else. I'm not one for vests but I LOVE that little sewing machine she made on there! ;)
