A new quilt.

 I have had a very productive week in my sewing room, I finished a few swap gifts and I got my In from the cold quilt together, I love this quilt.
 Yesterday I quilted it at work, the pattern is called Frisky feathers, there was a lot of white space on the quilt so the quilting fills it in perfectly.
 It looks so fresh and pretty,
 Now I just need to bind it and it will be ready to hang at Christmas.
 My garden is finally getting some life into it after such a wet and cold winter. Daffodils are popping up everywhere, they are so bright and cheery don't you think.
 Hyacinths are in full bloom and smell divine.
Today is catch up on the washing day and hopefully I'll  fit in a bit of sewing . I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Love your new Christmas quilt and the quilting on it too. What I wouldn't give to be a fly on your shoulder when you're working that longarm. Fabulous! It's still really weird seeing spring flowers blooming in your garden when mine are dying down ready for winter. Hugs....
