The sunshine and my daffodils have definitely perked me up. I worked in my yard a bit today. I pruned or maybe butchered my rose bushes. I have read that you are suppose to cut them back to 18" but I find it very hard to cut back stuff that has some new growth. Perhaps I should have gotten to this sooner but I'm keeping the faith that I'll have lovely roses later. If nothing else I've postponed the luncheon buffet for the deer and that will be okay too, and it made my day when a neighbor stopped their car and told me how pretty my flowers looked. I LOVE my neighborhood!
So before I got sick I was distracted by a squirrel in my sewing room and sewed up these 18 blocks.
The pattern is called Hi Again and I found in in the March/April edition of Fons & Porter's Quilting Quickly. You can see the cover here. The quilts are made with pre-cuts and there are several I'd like to make. This one is super easy. Now my layer cake is from 2013, it is the Boho Chic collection by Urban Chics... you can see the whole line here. I've done other quilts with their fabrics and I like how this pattern really shows off the big prints.
This is my favorite print...yellow tulips!!
I plan on making 36 blocks and adding little taupe cornerstones... simple...and kinda modern looking. I think it will look great draped over the couch in my living room. Hopefully my energy will return and I will attend to this quilt and several others that require my attention. I do know I won't be making any further statements about the status of my health... I think I just jinxed myself.
Hope you are feeling well and that you and I have a productive week!
