It's her fault! KT always comes up with an oldie but a goodie for her posts and I sure could use a little Jimmy Buffet right about now!
It's been five days without any sewing. LOL
The machine is out and ready to go...
My walking foot is out, cleaned and ready to go...
Look at all these pins!
This week I was able to go and buy the 2yrds of Kona Maize I needed to finish piecing the back.
About two years I strarted a quilt called Sweet Pea. It was my first paper piecing project and I had no clue what I was doing.
Google truly is your best friend for tutorials.
I made four blocks and then set them aside to make my mom's cancer quilt.
I thought of them when I went to make the back of the Robert Kaufman challenge quilt.
Our theme was Spring and these colors remind me of all the beautiful blossoms right now. Magnolias, tulips, vinca, crocuses, muscari and daffodils.
Here's the inspiration (sorry for the flash spot).
The sashing is really a teal color.
This is a simple quilt, but I really like the way the colors play against each other. It cheers me up when I see it.
I think I'll just straight line quilt it. It's a "modern" quilt and I think any frufrura quilting will only muddy the waters? I don't know.
What do you think?
Bunny hopping on over to Freshly Pieced to get my inspiration on.
Stop on by and be amazed and encouraged by what these ladies are working on!
Decided it would be good to shame myself into a finish.

So glad to be able to say the cabinet where I do my "paperwork" for the "farm" is cleaned out and organized. The younger boys' room got spring cleaned this week as well.
Planted some of our seeds early indoors for planting after Mother's Day.
What have you been up to?
