Making Time For Spring Forward

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
Spring Forward
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.


  1. Another wonderful quilt! I am so looking for Spring....where the heck is it!!

  2. cute quilt! love the lettering - so playful!

  3. I so agree, leave the time alone!
    I love your flower, it is not clunky!

  4. What a fun quilt, love the on point 9 patch blocks.

  5. This quilt is so much fun, that flower!!

  6. preciosa colcha !!!
    otro trabajo muy divertido con las letras jugando
    ¿quizá buscan la primavera?

  7. What a fun quilt! The big stitch quilting will fit it perfectly!

  8. Ah yes we are like peas in a pod, losing an hour of sleep is never a happy experience especially when you have parents over the next day x

  9. Such wonderful inspiration. I always love seeing what you are working on. Hugs

  10. What a fun quilt! Daylight savings always spins me out. Why can't they just make it half an hour in the middle and then leave it alone. but still an extra hour for sewing is always handy!

  11. Love this quilt. It's so cute!

    Next week we turn our clocks back an hour and I seriously cant wait . Its still so dark at 7 am at the moment it feels like the middle of the night!

  12. Great quilt! I saw a funny thing this year...whose idea was it to set the clocks forward in the middle of the night on a Saturday? Why not Friday at 4PM?
    Haha, makes sense to me!

  13. this sums it all up about DST and Fall cute! :)

  14. I love your comment about the "awkward flower." Perfect!
