Mid- Century Spring...

This was FUN! I'm always amazed at how the birds have total faith in the coming of spring. Not a leaf on a tree, dark gloomy days, rain, rain, and more rain and sleet! They start building there nests in earnest, while the rest of us moan and groan- longing for forsythia and lilacs. Well, they were right again. Spring has sprung, the trees are budding out, the forsythia is practically on it's way out, and my quilt is finished. Just in time for the new born birdies... and don't forget to put out your thread snips and little fabric bits. The birds love to decorate there nests, too, and it's magic when you see a bit of some quilt you worked on in the nest along with the mud and twigs. Quilters have been doing this for years. I promise to take a picture, next time I find one.


  1. I love this quilt! Did you use a pattern or make up your own? I love it... so simple and springy.
