CQI N2G block, AND NICE SURPRISE


I recently joined CQI, (Crazy Quilting International), and am joining in the N2G (New to Group) swap. I finished piecing my block today. It is going to be a garden block. I don't know how it got so dark, these are not colors I normally use. It just seemed to have a mind of its own.













I was recently in the Winter Quilt Swap, and mailed off my quilt to Lea in Japan. She was really happy to get my quilt, and yesterday I received a "Thank you goodie package" in the mail:


A Japanese crazy quilting book that has beautiful pictures
and 4 pieces of beautiful fabric.


















The little primitive cat card was so cute. I think when my granddaughter Kyleigh sees this she will want to paint it!

Thank you so much Lea, you really made my day!

Oh, Karrin, Another beautiful block....very rich colors. I never made a crazy quilt before So, I start noticing and studying how to construct crazy quilts from yours. It's fun and very interesting:-)

It's so nice of you to post my presents. Thank you! :-)

I love this garden crazy quilt block! Very rich it is, a fertile ground for your embellishments.
...Thanks for swinging by my blog and leaving your comment. The sea air at Point Bonita was indeed bracing...and full of rain!
