spring fever


The snow is slowly melting outside. Today it's raining, speeding up the process...

I dug out my collection of 6" vintage sheets charms. These dreamy, pastel watercolor, big flower prints are my little treasure - the result of a swap with lovely Evelyn of Use the loot. Just looking through them, sorting by color, is an instant injection of vitamin D.

These pretty fabric asks for a simple design. A checkerboard table top finished at 39"by 39". Now I'll be looking for a pretty backing...




Wishing you all some beautiful sunshine! And happy sewing, too...

We are thinking the same thing, Marit. I, too, have some lovely squares from Evelyn, and I really want to dig them out and do something with them because they just scream spring.

I love a simple charm square! The colors are pretty.

I am in love with the way you've combined those squares! You have an amazing sense of color. I can't believe those are the same squares I sent - somehow they look so much better just because of how you've put them together. Awesome! Can't wait to see the final quilt. And if you ever need some more squares, please let me know!
