longing for spring






This spring I keep looking through wip boxes, and one of them contained a fair amount of 2.5" strips in pastell colors from maybe 2 years ago. So I decided to move along and empty out the box.

These 16 patch blocks ends up a square 8", and I was aiming for a 64" by 80" layout. Easy piecing, but still a bit of puzzle to find a good balance and nice contrast in the final top. 
A few pastell marzipan eggs was consumed during constructions, as may be expected of a easter time endevour as this... Appropriate, I would say, as they were an important part of the inspiration regarding the color palette. 

Did you ever make a quilt inspired by a favourite snack or sweets?

A real beauty! I love the mix of soft colors with the pops of daffodil yellow, like in a spring field. I also like the variety of contrast in your blocks and the large prints in a few. My eye wants to roam around and discover all the surprises.

It looks like your marzipan eggs were the perfect inspiration for this one - it's perfect.
