Spring in my step

On the top of my to-do list is a quilt for my mother’s upcoming birthday, so I have been pulling lots of fabrics for her quilt. It’s not a minute too soon as it has to be finished by the end of the month. I’m planning on a simple, pieced quilt after tossing lots of ideas for artistic and time consuming designs and appliqué.

40 blocks, 40 fabrics, just celebrating spring.

First we have these 30 solids; mother loves blues, I want to work with greens, and then some reds for contrast. Not too spring-ish you say?

But what if I pair them up with these 10?

I can feel the spring in my strep already, and I haven’t even started ironing the 30 solids yet. Now to work; I’m planning to start on the blocks at the guild meeting tonight so I’d better get my ironing board out.

Have a wonderful spring-ish Wednesday!

  3. Happy late birthday. I'm sure this year will be the best!
    Your cabin sounds like a great place to spend time with family. Looking forward to seeing your Mother's Spring quilt too.

  4. Love the luscious colors... my kind of (eye) candy! Can't wait to see what pattern you apply to it all and watch the progress.
