Happy Monday!

Three lovely Spring days in a row have brought out my daffodils for this year and finally my header photo is not a blatant lie, LOL!
The Juanita variety, above, are the ones with the orange trumpets and seem a bit later than the Mount Hoods below.

Last year, Matthew helped me to plant a few King Alfreds in the rock garden for an early bright note.
During early Spring in New Hampshire, even the dandelions are welcome!
Not so welcome are the black flies that plague and bite all mammals, me included, ugh!

After finishing up the last few rounds of the 2" Cranston log cabin blocks, I laid them out on my made-up bed and decided on this pattern.
They are now all sewn together as a top. If you know a name for this arrangement, please do tell me!

Post script: Em has offered that this set is called Sunshine & Shadows . Thank you so very much, Em!

Happy sewing!

I'm pretty sure that arrangement is called "Sunshine and Shadows". Look very nice!

Hi Vic, Isn't it great to see the flowers blooming? I downloaded a little booklet from Fons and Porter about Log Cabin Patterns. In it, for the pattern you have laid out, they just called it "lights and Darks." I like "Sunshine and Shadows" better. Enjoy the nice weather.

I'm glad you finally have Spring. DD#1 has arrived from NH to spend a week with us. She said it was just getting warm there when she came here--and now we have cold weather coming while she visits. : )
Love the Log Cabin setting, Vic!

Daffodils are so 'smiley' - a true sign of spring :)
