The piecing is finished...

A few random photos of my spring flowers in my neglected yard....could it be I'd rather quilt than yard work? Anyway, it has been a long hard winter and up North, we are so tired of snow and sleet and it is so refreshing to have some evidence of spring.

The piecing and embroidery are complete on "Over the River and Through the Woods". I just need to piece my back. I have leftover blocks and flying geese that I thought I would work in the back as well as all the scraps from the top. Yahoo......

It is beautiful, and the picture doesn't do it justice. I hope mine will be even half as gorgeous when I get it finished....months from now...

Your quilt top is gorgeous. So tasteful, I usually love the bright colors, like your Pretty In Pink, but this is soooooooo beautiful.
Neat flowers, I have to agree I would rather be sewing than working in the flower bed. It's so nice that the tulips and daffodils pop up even if we haven't prepared for them.

Good job on your quilt. It's just lovely. Happy Spring.

Your quilt is outstanding. Is that hand embroidery?

The quilt is beautiful! You still and always amaze me.

Darn I want some spring flowers! I've got to think ahead next fall.
Have a great day.
