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 Woman.com 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!!
