This beautiful collection of Ukrainian eggs by Carolyn Trout is the perfect harbinger of Spring! Hope your celebration is splendid and joyful.
Oliver and I are sorting through my sewing room and finding interesting things, and missing what we are really seeking. Things seem to disappear easily in there, and we look for an hour at most, then move on. They will surface some day.
The birds have returned, snow is receding like large slow glaciers melting, a house fly came to life in the window sill today and gave Oliver a good chase. Signs of life are everywhere, spring is definitely arriving.
"Twilight Feathers" ~ Detail
Scraps and samples from the quilt above were found in a bottom drawer. We vaguely remembered this one as a Pilgrim and Roy Challenge Auction quilt for the National Quilt Museum several years ago. I finish these quilts and ship them in days, still hot from the machine, so it's no wonder they are forgotten quickly. I hope whoever owns it still is enjoying it. I'm working on a small one for the November Celebrity Invitational AAQI auction, just beginning to quilt a bit now and then as my thumb and wrist improve.
I am so pleased many of you are trying the recent tutorial on Celtic Bubbles and having success! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you have photos to share. Working on this design should not only give you something new for your quilting repertoire, but help improve the quality of your quilting, more even stitches, better control, better spacing, better everything.
Happy Spring, and keep quilting! Your work gets better every day.....
