Next up in the hoop is 'Spring Forward', the #1 quilt in my 9-patch series. I wanted a change from the blue and reds I've been working with and this quilt seemed like the obvious choice. Well..., why wouldn't it be? Springtime where art thou? lol
Actually we're seeing wonderful signs of spring around here! Those hardy tulips out by the drive are looking like they're going to bloom again this year which always makes happy. Gotta love that cheery red that comes up every year regardless of their neglect and abuse (really bad place to have planted tulips when you have rowdy kids like I do). And honestly, they look waaay better than the tulip, or whatever kind of flower it is, will ever look in this particular quilt.
The awkward flower
I deliberately made this flower look awkward and clumsy because that's exactly how I feel every year at Daylight Savings time. They (whomever THEY are) arbitrarily jerk an hour out of my Sunday and expect me to carry on like nothing ever happened. Ha. It usually messes up my entire week until I finally fall in with the program.
I included a happy birdy...
But THEN, at Fall Daylight Savings, I totally understand what it's all about. Getting an whole extra hour to sleep in? My. Favorite. Day. Ever. hehe Anyway, It's a fun quilt and one I'm looking forward to trying out my #5 Perle Cotton thread on. I'll keep you posted on how that all works out for me.
