Civil War Bride Quilt

I came across a blog that had this wonderful quilt and all the ladies were working on it and showing photos of their progress. The pattern is made from an antique quilt called "The Bird of Paradise Quilt". When I saw the blocks I just knew I just had to make it, along with the 30 other quilts I'm working on. So I order the pattern and could hardly wait to start. I finished my first 6 blocks and have 3 more nearly finished. Only 11 more and 4 borders and I'll be done. Maybe some time in 2012?

Signs of Spring

After a really long cold, icy, wet, snowy winter, Spring is finally here! Well we thought is was until it snowed again last weekend. I love daffodils. They are a little bit of color in a very dull brown landscape. Soon the roses will be blooming and we will all be whining about the heat.
