With apologies to Dean Martin, 'How lucky can one girl be? I went to my mailbox and what did I see? A beautiful quilt made just for me. Ain't that a kick in the head?' Okay, not exactly the correct lyric but I have had the tune in my head since yesterday.
Imagine my surprise to find a package from Lucy of Quilting With The Past in the box. I had seen this sweetie little quilt when Lucy shared it on her blog and never dreamed that it might be coming to me. I commented then that those little teeny blocks made me smile. Oh boy, my cheeks are going to ache from all the smiles as I get to enjoy it every day.Here is another look with a penny for perspective. Oh my, the pieces and stitches are just so teeny.
Thank you, Lucy for such a special treat. I'd say one girl can be pretty lucky. That's sure how I have felt this week.

I also saw this on Lucy's blog but I never realized it was that small until you put the penny on it. What is the actual size of this little beauty?
