Spring At Last!

I'm grateful for even the weeds after this winter!

The Friday Quilters with Claire group at The Golden Gese Quilt shop on 22 Liberty Street, in Concord, New Hampshire is always great fun for me! Here is Claire herself showing a quilt she said that she finished a while back. Those turquoise's are classy!

Here's the back of the same quilt; way to go, Claire!!!

Barbara, below, was working on a modified Churn Dash set on point in all Civil War fabrics. I sure did drool over all her fabulous blocks!

As for Beverly and her dog, Yoda, they were outside taking a constitutional when I snapped these two pictures of Beverly's purple log cabin variation.

Here is a close up of the blocks and the fabrics. I love that multi-colored one that looks like the marbled antique endpapers of old and rare books. So cool!

As for me, I sewed on my binding to the front of my Piano Keys Log Cabin, and then worked on piecing some neutrals for a backing for the Shenandoah Valley UFO from last Spring.

My header photo is finally true once again as the grass turns greener and the daffodils are blooming gloriously.

This photo, above, was taken Saturday the second of May. Today is the fourth of May. So, "May the fourth be with you!!"

Happy sewing!

Another fun quilty day for you.
I love that swirly fabric, as well. You described it perfectly. I have some old books with just such end papers. : )
Love the daffodils coming up randomly. So pretty.

Once again I want to say how much I love your Piano Keys. Please tell Beverly how much I adore those fabrics and the pattern she has used. Also, I was greatly honored this week to be quoted by Barbara B. In her Civil War Quilts post regarding her decision on the dating of the 1862 quilt. I intend to get back into my antique quilt research, which has taken a back seat to my Project Linus quilting this year. I love seeing the repro fabrics, but do not really have any. Will keep following you with interest.

Our daffs are just past their peak. The tulips are popping! (And, yes, the dandelions are everywhere.)
