Churn Dash (set on point)
Jo's Little Women's Club 2017
Fabric by Fig Tree
The calendar says summer begins June 21 which means there are a few remaining days of spring, the temperature gauge says summer is already here with temps in the high eighties and nearing ninety. Let's don't even speak of the humidity. This churn dash quilt is one I started last year, I wanted to add more spring seasonal. The green color reminds me of new grass and leaves, the yellow is the color of daffodils and forsythia and red are the tulips. Oh those miniatures they are such foolers--their diminutive size is misleading, I allowed my quilting ambitions to overload my quilting skills. I thought the quilt would be much more interesting if set on point. The quilt is approximately 18" x 18."
The blooms on the day lilies this year are huge and vibrant.
Rose Garden Sewing Basket
from the 2017 Nashville Needlework Market
Three of the four panels for Stacy Nash's Rose Garden Sewing Basket are stitched, panel #4 is in my hoop. Another nice addition for my spring seasonal. For me, spring is always a sign of renewal, hope and potential. Pulling weeds, struggling with the mathematics of setting a quilt on point and stabbing away at flower panels for a sewing basket are gentle reminders of the beauty of spring.
