Spring has arrived in our part of the world. Everything is so green and new life is popping up everywhere.
My kids and I discovered this nest of robin eggs the other day. We can't wait to see the little birds once they hatch. We've also had some pretty strong storms come through. I can't say I enjoy the tornado sirens, but I'm thankful for the purpose they serve.
I also built up my courage and finally dug into an entire stack of Denyse Schmidt fabric I've been collecting over the past year. (I threw in 2 fabrics from Juliana Horner since they matched so well with the color scheme.
I have been wanting to make an x-plus quilt for a while now and thought these fabrics would work fabulously. I also pulled several gray-patterned fabrics to work at the background fabric. I cut out all the fabric and piled them up in stacks with all the fabrics combined to make up each block. I'm going for a very scrappy look.
I have almost half of the blocks made to make a twin size quilt and the other half ready to be assembled. Here is what I have so far.
I don't have a deadline for this quilt since I'll be keeping this one. I'll just be working on this one in my spare time.
I'm almost done with my starburst quilt. I just need to bury some threads and take some photos. Can't wait to show it off.
