Happy Spring!

Spring arrived yesterday, delivering a beautiful sunny, clear day, as if on cue, but you wouldn't know it today with a light snow falling. Ah well, it's to be expected this time of the year. Regardless, I thought it would be nice to usher in the promise of warmer weather with a little parade of Jane's Danuta's Garden blocks.












She's got all of the star blocks finished and has begun sewing a strip of the 3-block sashing to them, and they are beauties.















The large florals go so beautifully with the swirling yellow print. Can you say Martha Negley? Her prints just make me go weak-kneed.













So hard to pick a favourite.

















She's coordinating the colours in the sashing with the colours in the stars for a little bit of a different feel.














The stars border the 9-patch blocks that make up the quilt's centre. It's a beauty, and a great reminder of the coming warmer weather. It was also incentive for me to find my little bits and pieces and resurrect my version, but I've got a loooong way to go before I sew this much done on it....M

Jane's springtime blocks will be a lovely way to usher in real springtime weather. Can't wait to see the finished top.

Janie's quilt will be so bright and beautiful. Don't worry Marie, I am far behind in getting my piecing together. Jane just races on, but loving it and the quilt pattern. Linda
