Why I Love Spring

What can I say?  It has just burst forth into glorious bloom and bud around here.  I love it!  You should hear the birds, they love it, too!


I finished this little quilt last night.  It is made of leftovers from the quilt I made earlier as a sofa cover.

This is the backing.  Don't you love it!  This is one of the fabrics my sister-in-law gave me.  I have more of it, so I'm sure you'll be seeing it again.


Here it is again with the plum trees looking over its shoulder.  Look at all those blooms!!


It's rather overcast here this morning, so the pictures are not that great.  The fabrics are not as dull as they appear.


Even inside without a flash it still looks pretty blah.

Now, that's more like it.  Another batch of leftovers out of my way!  I have lots more that I need to use.  Later for that.

I hope your day is absolutely wonderful!

Hugs and kisses,

How cool is that--another quilt to go with the big one. I like to use big prints for backing too this way you get to enjoy them.

What a beautiful quilt. It's amazing what a quilter can do with leftovers. I love the pattern and the big prints.

Thanks for the peek at spring. We are nowhere near that here. It did get to 63 today and warmer tomorrow, but we know it will snow again.
