Random Acts Of Kindness

Another day of quilting here in my hollow upstairs. I believe the quilt pattern is a free one off the Moda website. The quilting is an E2E using a design called Deb's Feathers. Can I say it? Love it and want to keep this one too!

Imagine my surprise when I found a package on my porch today from Candace! A simple Random Act of Kindness really made my day. Thank you so much Candace! I want to go fishing with her someday. She post the most awesome pictures of places they go fishing. Click on her name to take yourself on over to Squash House Quilts.

I'd know that line of fabric on the handbag anywhere, LOL. Beautiful handbag. I think Candace got the wrong address.

What a NICE surprise to find that on your doorstep!!! You deserve it, though. You were so quick to offer to donate your quilting service for the quilt top for our quilting blogging buddy (Terry). So I'm happy to see something fun and unexpected happen for you!!!

What a great bag! I love the effect with the dresden plate spokes on it!

The quilt you're working on looks fabulous. Love the fabrics. Would love to see a close-up of the quilting.

I keep coming back to take a look at this quilt. For some reason, it keeps catching my eye - the colors are fabulous.

Did you happen to take a bigger photo of it? Just curious.

How sweet of Candace. Nice gifts too! You're pretty lucky, how fun to get surprises like this. My quilt looks so nice, love the feather design. Thank you for doing the quilting for me.

Such a pretty bag that Candace made for you - the use of the dresden blocks so creative. Thanks for sharing all the fall pictures.

More great quilting at Quilt Hollow.
How very sweet of Candace. I know you must still have a very big smile on your face. I remember seeing the bag on her blog. I want to go fishing with her too. Her state looks like a great place to go fishing too.
