For my husband spring (starting in late February) is calving.
Spring does not start that early for me. I like to think of Easter as the beginning of spring. I made a table topper to honor the event.
Another sign of spring is the wildlife on the move.
This one passed my window during morning coffee.
My quilting friends found winter a productive time for piecing. Here are many of their protects:
This first one is fun as you let the stripped fabric do all the work for you!
This quilt came from a quilt show where various vendors offered block kits for Quilts of Valor.
Sherry did the below quilt from scraps from another oriental fabric collection quilt. The darks and lights are reversed on this one. It now covers her bed. And her husband said he liked it!
I had given the gals the pattern for Jacob’s Ladder which is a great scrap user. Here is some of their progress:
Linda got out a UFO from a Jo Morton class and finished it up.
Linda also cheered herself up on a dreary winter day by making this very small quilt. She used all vintage fabric.
Carolyn did some beautiful hand embroidery to trim out this quilt.
Our current project together is curved seams. As the leader of our group, I thought I should struggle with the concept first. Mine has moved on to the quilter.
I only captured a few of the beginnings of the groups projects. You will see more later as the leader had them list goals for each month on this project. Everyone reached their goal on month one.
The first one was all made with vintage fabric. Some of which was feed sack fabric. The advantage of the low thread count helped make the seams fit well!
It will be fun to watch these projects progress.
May you enjoy being outside again now that spring is here, while still catching a few moments to sew!
