The Love of Spring!

I love when spring rolls around! Everything is so pretty and green! Our property really comes alive and makes you want to take long walks or bike rides in the woods.
  It is really hard to stay inside and sew this time of year. There is so much to do outside and its so nice being out there. I confess we did not rake the leaves this fall so now that its getting pretty out we are working hard to make at least around the house look good (not to mention snakes love to hide in dead leaves).  Is it just me or do even the animals seem happier in spring?

I have managed to get some sewing done I am almost done with what will be the first quilt I have made for myself. I am just not sure how I want to quilt it. Any suggestions?

I got this pattern at one of my favorite blogs to read "Quilt Story"

I am linking up with WIP at Freshly Pieced


  1. I love the colors Sheila! I think a crosshatch would be cool, but FMQ never looks bad!!!

  2. The forest pics are beautiful. :D ANd your quilt is really cue I love the design can't wait to see it finished <3

  3. That's a really lovely pattern. The colours you've chosen are fab too! I also find it hard to stop indoors when Spring and Summer come around - but there's nothing wrong with that, I think we should enjoy it! Plenty of sewing time in Autumn and Winter! :-)
