I love the look of your mini quilt with all those great beach blocks. I think that was the best swap of 3.5" blocks yet.
Dude! You have much to be amped about for sure!
LOVE those bitty blocks - your post 'forced' me over the flickr page for the group :D Looks fun!
That ampersand applique looks great! And what a lovely photo of Maria and her friend. Oh and 'hooray!'for the sports thing!!
