Celebrate Spring!

While it's snowing in so many parts of the country we're experiencing Spring temps. Ugh - those hot Summer days are not far way. Sigh!

I've been in a Spring quilting mode lately. While digging deep in my closet I found an old Celebrate Spring Jelly Roll by Sandy Gervais and had a light bulb moment. I'd seen a quilt like this on Kerri's blog last week and she kindly shared her cutting dimensions with me - she used charm squares and I used my Jelly Roll. I really like this simple cutie because it'll look adorable draped in a spot in my home to ................ Celebrate Spring! It is my favorite season, after all. :-)


This is only my 6th finish for 2009 but I'm very pleased to say that they have all been from my stash. I've been trying to do some deep sorting and cleaning of my sewing room but I keep discovering hidden treasures and then I want to sew. LOL


Thanks for stopping by! Please come again soon!

In Friendship!

I love it! We have at least a foot of snow. I'll drool over your project and dream of spring. :)

With these warm temperatures, we are wondering if we will even have spring this year or will jump straight into summer. Not ready for that!

Lovely quilt, looks fresh and new, so like Spring!

Darlene---I love your quilt!!! I have a lot of charm (5 inch) packs that I am going to "try" to make into this quilt---I think I can do it. One more thing to add to my "to make" list!

Have a great day! I love reading your blog!

Vicky said...

That is SO cute! Wow, I love it!

Kaaren said...

How beautiful! Did you say only your 9th finish? That's beyond wonderful! Sounds like you're putting a big dent in your stash as well. Wanna go shopping with me? Things just jump into my basket you know. (wink)

Salem Stitcher said...

I LOVE that quilt!

Wendy said...

Your new finish is bright and cheery, spring is coming fast. After having a bit of snow last week we are now having much warmer temperatures, the sun feels good on the skin.

quiltdolls said...

only your 6th finished project. You need to sit in time out. I am still working on 1. Yes 1. I have alot of mini things going. But I do have my autistic son home, he had surgery last month on his foot & cannot walk on it. so no school.

Candace said...

Darlene, 6 finishes in 60 days and all from stash is mighty impressive - bravo! I love the fresh look of this one! You are definitely filling me with inspiration!
Cheers!

Kathy Wagner said...

Another pretty quilt!
How we long for spring here!
This quilt surely puts you in the mood for spring!

julia said...

Wow, Darlene...
ONLY 6???? Well, but 6 gorgeous finishes! (Only? How do you think 6 is worth an "only"...said she and scratched her head...)
I've seen the coin quilt on Kerri's blog, too, and decided to make one myself ~ but you're really fast!
I love the fresh look of it...! Do you need it when it's finished??? ;o)
Hugs, Julia

Shasta said...

Only 6th finish. Harumph! I don't think I have a single one yet! This one is lovely - just like all your others. That one has been on my to-do list as well since the first time I saw it.

Cathy said...

"Only" your 6th finish for 2009! You get a lot done, compared to me anyway. That quilt will inject a bit of springy cheerfulness.

Millie said...

The quilt is so soft and springing. What a great way to make a beautiful quilt from a jelly roll.
