Special Gift

I celebrated (?) a birthday recently, and my sweet friend, Mary, sent me this amazing quilt.


You probably can't tell from the picture above how small this quilt is, so here's a picture on my cutting mat.


I'm a really big fan of Mary's work.  Look how tiny the pieces are!
And her quilting, as always, is so perfect.


Thank you so much, Mary!  It's such a treasure, and so is your friendship!

Another blogmate quilted a special gift for my birthday, but I'm going to share that one with
you later.  It matches something else I'll be showing you. 

Hope you have a great weekend!

Kim
