First Day of Spring

Hello cute quilters!  Today is the first day of spring and it snowed last night.   What the heck?  Obviously mother nature wanted the new spring flowers to have a beautiful white backdrop allowing them to really POP and say HELLO SPRING!  She's so smart. What better way to get the attention of even the Gloomy-ist Gus, reminding us that warmer weather and brighter skies are headed our way.  The signs are everywhere in nature if your willing to take a moment to stop and take them all in.  

Life tosses us signs if we pay attention.  As I mentioned yesterday I've been in a slump for a few weeks and have been in need of something.  Well that something was a reminder of why I started this blogging and quilting journey.  This one e-mail put it all in perspective for me.  With the permission of sender I'm copy and pasting the exact email.  Thank you Turid for allowing me to share your e-mail.

The attached picture of their quilt made with my free Podunk Posy pattern.   

This is why I quilt, this is why I shared free patterns.  When I say "this" it's not that I could share her picture.  It was"This" moment for her, the comfort she felt. 

Thank you, Turid for sharing your story and photo.  You and your husband are in my thoughts, blessings to you both.  This was just the push I needed to get out of my slump.

~ I can't wait ~

Good Monday Morning sweet quilty friends!  I've had a huge pile of blue and yellow squares sitting on my cutting table for weeks.  They were supposed to be for a leaders and enders project.  But I couldn't wait to sew up at least one block.

The plan is for a simple charm quilt big enough for the queen size bed in the spare bedroom.  These simple quilt patterns appeal to me more these days.  There was a time when I couldn't wait to learn how to make the more complicated quilts.  Now that I know how to make them they just don't have the same charm as the classic and traditional patterns.

And who doesn't just love a sweet little stack of scrappy squares.

It'll take some will power on my part not to sew this quilt up as fast as I can.  Well maybe I can make just one block a day!

Doing a happy dance!

Hello sweet quilting friends!  Just wanted to pop in and share my new pattern covers.  And to let everyone know my patterns are now offered as a physical pattern that can be shipped anywhere in the U.S.  For now they are only available in my Etsy shop but there's plans in the works to get them out there everywhere!  Of course the PDF patterns are still available for instant download.  It's so exciting to see a dream come to life however gradually it may be.  A big ole THANK YOU to each one of you for your support over the years.
