New Look!

How do you like the "New Look" of my blog?  I thought it needed something lighter, and more spring-like to reflect all the great projects I am working on.  I would love your feedback on it.  The best part is that there is now a separate page just for my new Block Of The Month.  Won't that make it easy to find?  And I have lots of other great ideas planned for the blog this spring as I get back in the swing of things after being a way for a few weeks.

I just got back from a wonderful Quilt Retreat and you can see pictures of all the incredible projects that all the girls worked on HERE.  Wow did they ever get a lot done.

I nearly finished work on my next pattern:  March Daffodils!!  I am so excited about it.  Quilt will be publishing it this spring, so look for it on her website in the next month or so.  Here are a few glimpses at the work in progress!

It turned out to be HUGE for a table runner.  About 24" across by nearly 75" long.  It will take a mightly long table to accomodate this beastie.  But I just love the yellow and green.  It is just like the daffodils blooming in my yard today.  These pictures show the completed top.

Here is a closeup of the daffodil block.  It is super easy to piece traditionally or to paper piece.  The daffodil trumpet is appliqued and the ruffled edge is ric-rac.  It was so much fun to make.  And the cool thing about it is. . . .it was super easy to do.!

Most of the quilt is just stitched in the ditch, but I had fun designing and quilting a vine and daffodil border.  Here is a little glimpse.  I quilted in in a wonderful variagated lime green thread.  You can just see the fun daffodil patterned fabric I used for the backing.  I am working on the instructions now and hope to finishe them this weekend! 

And guess what?  I am really excited about this.  One of my quilt patterns will be featured in the Keepsake Quilters Catalog!!  As soon as I get the final word on that I will let you know.  Want a hint?  Look at my April Pattern on my Website. Hehehe.

Much more to come soon!!
