I used cross hatching on the background and McTavishing inside the stitchery. The yellow lines were from the chaco marker, and they dusted off when I was done. I used #16 Perle Cotton to embroider this and really love the ease of only dealing with one strand instead of having to use multiple strands of traditional floss. I was able to find Finca Fresencia No. 16 at my local quilt shop. A bit pricey, but worth the convenience and ease of handling. It doesn't come in as many colors as traditional embroidery floss, which is a shortcoming, but still has a nice selection, including variegated styles.
So now Spring can come since I have my Happy Spring Quilt on my front door to welcome it in.
