The weekend saw me finish up the Spring Blossoms quilt!
And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! (even though my poor birds are upside down in this picture!).
The block is nice and big (about 16 inches), easy to make, and you don’t need many of them to make a nice big quilt. This one is about 58″ x 76″.
I’d been collecting batik fat quarters for quite a while, and it was nice to use a few of them up. The background fabric is a batik too… a crazy deal I’d gotten on Black Friday two years ago! The birds and matching pussy willow fabric were bought ages ago with no plan, other than to make something special for myself.
I’ve got to show you the whole backing on this one too.
It was another clearance bolt that I got an insane deal on. I sewed two lengths together along the selvedge and created this gorgeous backing that is a great compliment to the flowers on the front.
Now Relic and I are snuggling with it while we wait out the rest of winter.
