Living in NC means winters are generally mild.  When it gets frigid cold, it doesn't last long.  That doesn't mean I am not thrilled to see Spring - I am!! I adore more hours of daylight and not having to commute to work in the dark.

This was one of the first quilts I quilted last year once I upgraded to my Janome machine.  I am still learning much about FMQ but having fun!

Found fun stuff in my blog trolling I wanted to share:

  • Go watch this video on YouTube and help raise money for Australian flood release.  Very fun and inspiring.  The kids are raising money through google ad clicks so spread the word.
  • JayBird quilts is having a wonderful giveaway.  (However, if you don't enter, perhaps it raises my chances of winning!)
  • Major giveaway going on at Sew we Quilt at Stash Manicure.  You have to check this one out
  • Luck of the Irish to you - check out this chance to win a gift certificate at Spun Sugar Quilts
  • Bright colorful giveaway at Pink Fig Designs
  • Visit SewCalGirl to nominate and then vote for best of quilting awards.
And finally, I won a Quilting is Murder pin for successfully following the trail of clues through various quilt shops (it is a tough job, but someone has to do it.)  Look for a new mystery in May.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Love your beautiful spring quilt! What do you do with your load of small scraps? I have a fun idea on my website. Stop by and maybe you'll be inspired to try what I'm doing.
