A surprise in the mail!

I love getting fun, unexpected mail. And today I got this cute postcard and bookmark from my mother.
I took the bookmark out so you could see the cute little butterflies on the background. Thanks Mother!
And along the postcard lines. Here is my card the July family swap. The theme is "patriotic".

And I even finished up a little work.

I quilted feathers in the setting triangles, a hibiscus flower with radiating rays in the blocks, and ba-bump feathers in the border.

With the summer thunderstorms, I turn off the longarm in the afternoon when they start, so my quilting slows down a lot in the summer. But the up side is I have more time to work on my own piecing, applique, painting and dyeing! Not a bad trade off.
Have a great night!
