may day

a wonderful time of the year
a sunny morning
a holiday celebrating international workers day
a handsome, longarmed husband aka quilt holder available
a sweet kitty
a few tulips surviving the april showers
and the new leaves of the wild rose

what better set up for a quick photoshoot of my finished sweet sixteen quilt?

size: 48" * 72"
vintage linens (cotton / polyester) top, cotton batting and a voile back
hand quilted in perle 16 

the colors of this quilt will match the wild roses hiding in the early buds...
can't wait... we're all set for summer, now

; )

wish all of you a beautiful day!

For noen herlige bilder!! Og ikke minst - det lappeteppet skaper virkelig vårstemning, og akkurat disse fargetonene er jeg så glad i selv :)Rett og slett helt nydelig! Og så en kjempesøt pus som koser seg i vårsola :)

Dette var et utrolig inspirerende innlegg, tror sannelig jeg må bort til stoffhylla mi og plukke noen rosa, gule og oransje lapper!

Ønsker deg ei fin maihelg!

Very pretty quilt and other spring photos. Congratulations on your finish. Your stitches are beautiful. It looks like the perfect quilt for a long summer nap.

It was a beautiful May Day here too! I am working on a very similar baby quilt, and just like a beautiful day in May, it is refreshing to work on a very simple project. Take care, Pam

I always enjoy seeing the colors/fabrics you choose to use together in your quilts. This one is so 'pink lemonade'--LOVE it! Lovely to see the tulips too. I wish I had a few more in my yard.:)
