A Touch of Spring

Last night I finished up this little beauty….
It is from Lori Smith’s Fat Quarter Quilting: Throughout the Year.  I started it last year but got frustrated in the process and set it aside.  My frustration was not due to the pattern or the instructions.  I got the basket blocks sewn together and realized I had two triangles inverted…not on just one block, but on all five blocks.  I packaged it all up and set it aside.  I am not very good at ripping things out and fixing them. 

A couple night ago, I remembered the project and dug it out thinking it would be nice to finish for spring.  The quilt was made to hang out by our front door, so I didn’t take the time to hand applique the rabbits and flowers.  A little heat and bond along with button stitch applique is perfect for an outside quilt that will only last a couple seasons.  There are several other quilts in the pattern that I would like to make as well….maybe the 4th of July design will be next…Hopefully it won’t take a year to finish.
