Spring is in the air.....
We were required to buy one fat quarter, that each shop had specifically chosen. Then, if you so desire to create a quilt using a portion (your choice in amount of the fat quarter to use) but it has to be noticiable. Then when you turn it back in..to one of the shops, they will display it and vote on their favorite and the grand prize is a new Janome 660 Gem sewing machine. I decided to participate and am creating Dresden Plates with each of the fat quarters. The photo above shows how far I progressed today. Not very much completed at all, especially considering I cut the pieces out last night.
The wonderful spring weather has me spending quite a bit of time outdoors. I am in the process of raking up all of the leaves from the fall and moving them into a compost pile. Hubby is working on building some shelves for the Kitchen. Savannah is working on planning the garden area. She moved a huge amount of leaves over to the area so they can be tilled in. Oh it is so glorious to be back in Southern Oregon where we will actually be able to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers.....flowers....flowers. Daffodils are showing the first signs of peeking up. Spring is springing!!!
The lighting in the photo above does not do justice to the fabric colors, but at least I have three almost assembled. I hope that spring does not prevent me from completing this quilt. LOL.
Of course, this project got set aside for the new quilt. I could win a sewing machine. I am so laughing at myself. Especially since, the quilt pictured above is for a paying customer. Good thing she knows I do not have set time limits. It is done at my pace and my pace alone. She is a great lady and I will continue to work on this also. Well, when I am not outside playing in the leaves and dirt.
I hope that you are all getting to enjoy spring weather and your quilting projects!!
