I'd like to turn the A/C down to about 60 degrees so I can snuggle under it, but I don't suppose DH would appreciate that! I had to go to three fabric stores to find the perfect backing. I had a vision, and couldn't be swayed.
One of the Guilds that I belong to had a Challenge this year: Old McDonald's Farm. Anything farm related. I immediately knew I wanted a barn with a barn quilt. Everything else grew from there.
Do you think I need another sunflower and maybe a stem on the right side to break up the rail fence?
This poor UFO has been languishing in the pile for a couple of years. I had stitched it, but never quite got around to adding the beads. This was on my UFO list for guild, and now it's a finish. The beads took all of maybe 30 minutes? And yes, I need to get a larger pillow form. I had one that was too big and one that was too small.
My green scraps for RSC16 were transformed a couple of weeks ago, but I just finally took photos tonight after dinner. If you need some scrappy inspiration, pop over to Angela's blog. She hosts a linky party every week as well as makes suggestions for rows/blocks.
I'm finally making a quilt from my RSC15 project! Here's a sneak peak. I hope to finish putting it together tomorrow and add the first scrappy border. Then I'll add another white border and be done. The search is now on for backing fabric. I'm not sure why I decided to set them on point, since they're essentially circles?? I hand embroidered flowers for each center, in the appropriate color for the block.
I think that sums it up for the month, except to say that Spring did finally arrive!!
Keep on Stitching.....Sunny
