The First Daffodil

This was the first bloom this morning and by the time I got out to take the picture later in the morning, there were 4 more! I love daffodils.

This quilt I finished binding today. It was a quick scrappy project I designed to use up the border fabric (seems I design a lot to use up border fabric!). All fabrics were from stash and the border fabric is probably 5 - 8 years old. It's a nice table cover size.

This is a closeup of what I did in the black squares. I had some small cardboard leaf shapes that I traced around and then freehanded echo around those. It was fun and another learning experience. It really is fun to experiment with different techniques on the longarm.


Gratitudes:

Another beautiful spring day - 80° today.

Daffodils

Getting my chores done so I can bind quilts or just sew.

I've just had my first daffodils come out as well. Very nice freehand on the black. Like the bright colors and do I see some of that veggie fabric. LOL

I love daffodils, too. I took a picture of mine just that other day. Now I'm impatiently waiting for my tulips!

I really like the leaf designs in your quilt.
