Lovely Spring Colors

Don't you love it when the dead of winter ends and new life springs forth?! My yard is showing it's colors.

We planted daffodil bulbs last fall. The soil was so rocky I wondered if any would come up. But they have.

There's lots of new color inside as well. I made this pillow from 2.5" pieces of fabric called mini charms. I love the happy colors from Moda Fabrics:

In 2014 I participated in a "block-of-the-month" quilt-along. It was a very challenging learning experience, but I'm pleased with my completed quilt.

Here's a close-up - I enjoyed hand quilting, outlining some of the designs with a red running stitch. Don't you love the fabric that says "Dishes Men Like." Now that's a very vintage sentiment!

Has spring come to your part of the world yet? Any pretty flowers "springing" up?

Happy Sewing,
