Three more squares to go! I’m feeling good about getting this done in time for the quilt show. Today’s square is #6 in placement on the quilt. I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but I wove two shades of blue ribbon and sewed them to the background underneath the poppy.
I’ve got two more flower squares to make … daffodil and butterfly bush. The center square will have a picture of my grandma in her flower garden and I don’t know what else yet. I never know what I’m going to put on a square until I start working on it. It’s just like my favorite music … I improvise, get in the groove and jam … with, of course, Phish or the Grateful Dead playing on the stereo.
Is this the first day of spring? Sure wouldn’t know it here in northern Illinois. I had to get my winter coat, hat and mittens back out to walk Marley today. What a let down after 75 degrees on Tuesday. But, at least it’s not below zero and snowing anymore!!
