While the weather this weekend was a big improvement over last week, the memory of the sub-freezing temperatures and wind chill have me longing for Spring. And that got me thinking about having a new Spring-y quilt for my bed when it officially rolls around on March 20 - 66 days from now.
I spent a lot of time yesterday cruising Pinterest and came across this quilt from Lori Holt's book, Quilty Fun.
I really like the look of this one. Tulips are my favorite flower. And the wheels in my head got spinning around and I sewed up these beauties... polka dot tulips!
Now these are exactly like the ones in Lori's book. Mine are a bit more squat and I'm okay with that. They will be Carol's Hybridized Dotty Tulips. I know that my stash has more than enough dotty fabrics for these flowers. I do have to do some math to make this large enough for my bed, but it shouldn't be too hard. (Knowing my math deficiencies, it better not be too hard, LOL!)
I had hoped to stitch up more than 3 of these little darlings yesterday but I got sidelined by a wicked muscle spasm/neck ache. I was all hunched over - a cross between Quasimodo and the Incredible Hulk - but with a pastier complexion. My son brought me a great new heating pad. It is a little shawl with a minky cover that fastens in front with a magnet. Very soothing. He picked it up at Walgreens. I'm still a little achy. I think I'll spend a bit more time with it today.
