Third Block Maggie's First Dance

This is the third block in the Maggie's First Dance BOM by Jacquelynn Steves. 
I like the way the crayons added color to this block.

I also fixed the mistake I made on the second block.   

I was leery about my choice of using the batiks I had on hand, but I am pleased with how the blocks look together.  There is only one more block to go.

I'm working on Brenna's quilt and have two rows of twirls to go, then the squares.  I think I'll be doing some machine quilting as well.

Hope you are all well.
God Bless.

Pretty Postcards

 Isn't this pretty?  This is the postcard I received from my exchange partner, Jo, from the latest postcard swap organized by Sheila of Sheila's Quilt World
 I'm not sure which orientation is right, but I like this pansy either way.  Thank you, Jo.
I'm always impressed by the artistic abilities used to make the cards I receive.  

This is the card I made and sent to Jo.  I guess we were both in the flower mindset.

I haven't been idle, just quiet.
I have been hand quilting Brenna's quilt with long stitch quilting.
 It's slow going but progress is being made.  I hope she still likes turquoise and pink by the time she gets this quilt:)

I'm going to share a picture of a block that I made for the Maggie's First Dance BOM.  I made this block last month, and just yesterday put up the 1st and 2nd blocks as I prepare to make the 3rd.  Well, don't ask me why I didn't see the obvious mistake I made in putting the pieces together, but see if you can spot it.  I'm not talking about the geese points.  
If you spotted the bottom row and the geese on the wrong sides, that's it.  How could I not see that?  And it went up on facebook.  Geesh!  Anyway, that's something else to fix.  

I hope you all are enjoying life.  
Happy quilting.
God Bless.
