Ready for Spring

 Last week was a busy week, by the end of the day I was too tired to do any sewing that required me to think, so  I got this old quilt down off my "waiting for binding " pile and got to work. It only took 3 nights, makes you wonder doesn't it why I didn't do it earlier. This poor quilt has been sitting  for 2 years just waiting to be finished.
 I actually found it quite relaxing and very cosy on these chilly evenings.
 Now its all done and I love it all over again.
 Yesterday when I was doing my housework I decided to bring a bit of Spring into the house. I put all my winter quilts away and bought out my Fig tree favorites.
 The room looks so much lighter now and very pretty.
 Even the hallway has a new lease of life. I love this quilt, its called Sunshine Frolics by Nat Bird.


I hope you have had a good week and a restful weekend.

I am going to do some sewing this afternoon, I have another quilt just about ready for borders. Can't wait to show you.

Happy sewing. xx

Your latest finish is gorgeous Leanne! I have always loved this pattern- it is a wonderful variation on a 'star', isn't it?!

What do you think it is that makes you procrastinate the binding you silly girl. I love to do the binding. We need to talk : )

The quilts are lovely. Enjoy the freshness of Spring! Janita

Lovely, summery quilts! In fact, I was just thinking this morning that it's time for me to get out the fall quilts! I can't believe it's September 1 already! I love the border on the quilt you just bound. It's a gorgeous quilt!
