Hope Valley Twister Blocks

I'm trying to decide what to do with these blocks. I'm not sure if I should just make it small like this and use it as a wall hanging or if I should use the little bit of Hope Valley I have left and mix it with some other prints to make a bigger, more useful quilt. Any thoughts?

Random Acts of Kindness

Thank you all for the congratulations on our new baby! Your comments were very sweet and I appreciate each and every one. I'm sorry I haven't replied to them yet. My inbox is overflowing right now from not checking it regularly and with all this Google Reader ending stuff I am getting a lot of notifications from Bloglovin when someone follows me on it. Thank you for that by the way!!! I am so happy that you want to continue to read my blog.  I'm considering replying to comments in the comments thread for a while until I resolve some e-mail issues I've had.

I also want to take the time to say THANK YOU to a few special ladies. My very dear friend, Heather, restashed me!!! She sent me a beyond wonderful package of my all time favorite fabric Sweet by Urban Chicks. The package included a very thoughtful card that made me ball like a baby.  Not much longer after this package arrived she sent me the nicest package of baby things. Diapers, a sleeper, a Moby blanket and nookies (pacifiers). Thank you, Heather!  Your kindness touched me beyond words, really. Thank you, friend!

Then, my very sweet friend, Heidi sent me this beautiful baby quilt. I love every print she used. Heidi also sent along a card, and it too, made me cry. Thank you so much, Heidi! The quilt is already well loved! The gifts are so special but when someone says that they have been praying for you, well, that is something that means more to me than anything. But I love the gifts too ;) Heidi has some great pictures of this quilt here.

Kylie, my friend and bee mate for the cocorico bee, sent me an adorable baby bib along with her bee block for me. Isn't it sweet? Melinda and Leila also sent some cute fabrics that I can use for a few baby things. These random acts of kindness blow me away and it really reinforces the fact that quilters are the most awesome people ever! 

(melinda's itsy bitsy spider, amy's there was an old woman who lived in a shoe, kylie's hey diddle diddle, muriel's a little mouse with clogs on dutch nursery rhyme, leila's twinkle, twinkle little star)
Speaking of awesome quilters, I got to play with the cocorico bee blocks I've received so far from my bee mates! Boy, do I ever love these blocks!! My theme was Nursery Rhymes. Aren't these the greatest blocks? So much detail and thought went into each and every one.

Thank all of you so very much. Every package was a little piece of sunshine!

She's Here

Our little pumpkin was born Friday morning at home. She is so sweet and calm and has brought such joy to our home. I praise God for a healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery. Thank you all for the comments, e-mails, prayers and gifts. I am so touched by the friends I've made through this little blog of mine. I treasure your friendship.

It was so pretty out this morning I wanted to get a few pictures of my finished scrappy trips quilt. I love it all washed and crinkled. It was really windy and I couldn't get many good shots but it felt great to be outside with the sunshine.

I hope you all are well! Happy Sewing!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday!
