Because I am so ready for spring

day trip 015Okay, okay. I know this is summer but 




So taking a look at this what block would you chose to make and how would you use the colors?

Happy Quilting,

  1. O.k. so you want spring but said (and pictured) summer. Looking at the colors of the flower, my first thought was of a sun pieced like one of those crazy quilt-style flowers, the colors in a gradient pattern out from yellow in the center to an almost red-orange on the outer edge and just a touch of green in the bottom and lower right to represent the land (and the green in the photo). Go ahead and add touches of the lilacs and purple (red-purple!) in the gradient just to spice it up a bit!

    Then of course I had to go look for a link to the type of block I’m talking about, just in case anyone has never seen one and what do I find but this:

    …her flowers are pretty close to what I was thinking about (and her whole quilt says spring just like you wanted)! For mine it would be about supersizing just one of those flowers Velda Newman-style to make the whole quilt but better yet I think I’ll just gaze at hers and wait for the spring thaw…….
