Spring Fling….

While we move into winter here I have been quilting Julie’s pretty spring  garden quilt.

Spring quilt

An interesting division of colour in this quilt. I quilted the peachy/yellow side with gold thread:

and the mauve side with lilac thread:

I discovered in the process that four of my “seed pods” where perfect for the pinwheel blocks.Who knew? I never cease to be amazed by what the quilt tops I work on teach me!

I had fun quilting the picture blocks.

Julie, thank you for asking me to quilt for you.

Thank you dear readers for stopping by often and making comments.

…….and just because I can, sunset tonight in Taupo:

  1. Those seapod designs look fabulous. I may have to file that in my memory to use at a later time. I find I learn something new with every quilt, ....... and of course, having the internet nearby is a wonderful tool as well.

  2. A serene and beautiful sunset.

    Excellent job of quilting. The color play of the quilt is interesting and attractive.

  3. Wow...the use of colour in that quilt really is amazing and I love the idea of using two distinctly different threads to quilt it.

    That is a gorgeous sunset. Ours last night was covered by rain!

  4. Well I do love the quilt Linda but once again your quilting is amazing, I must get in touch with you when I have a quilt or two ready for quilting!


I love hearing from you - write now!
