Happy Easter! And I actually had some time this morning to finish the last little bit of connecting all the little blocks together! And we have a quilt top. This has been almost a year in the making and I really will be happy to have it completed. Sashed with a pale yellow cotton which I repeated in the borders. Tomorrow morning, I will take the time to make some decisions about the quilt back and get this puppy sandwiched. I have selected the binding already. It will be the same small green print that I used for the connections in the borders and the little cornerstones. This has grown into a VERY large quilt!!!!! I left it on the line for awhile. It was quite breezy and the wind helped blow a lot of loose thread bits away. I am most hopeful that those threads will find their way into some bird nests this spring.
In other quilt news, I will be putting together a baby quilt for clever son's lovely girlfriend to give as a gift. Yellow, green and possibly monkeys was the request. Sounds like fun! And after such a big, beastly quilt, a baby quilt will be a dream!
Taking the time to admire the trilliums blooming in our big woods. I have been stalking the plants for the last week and today these ones were wide open. So lovely.
Linking up with Judy's design wall Monday because the Farmer's Wife quilt is the only thing on my design brain at the moment!
