I love Spring!

It's not quite spring, but we've had a warmish, sunny day here in NH and the snow is starting to melt, and I can see my deck again (well, most of it!) Here's the finished heart quilt, a month behind schedule for Valentine's Day, photographed on my deck :)

Other new stuff

These two quilts are coming along! Final pictures coming soon!

A drum quilt for a little drummer boy

This is a custom order for a new baby of a professional drummer. When asked to make a drum quilt, I was stumped, but then I remembered an Ikea sheet with drums that was hidden deep in my fabric closet. From there I found coordinating fabric - and how perfect is Moda's Apple Jack fabric with the alphabet theme - and D is for Drum was born. I don't think I've ever made a quilt with hour glass blocks, so that was something new to do... and of course there had to be a big appliquéd drum. I think all my quilts now will have to have an appliqué or two... it'll be my signature piece!
