This wall hanging is actually the very first piece I ever made when I started quilting. It was very hard for me to pick out colors (still is but I'm a smidge bit better now) . . . so that's why I went with the rather bland black and white. (I was a total Scaredy Cat lacking in color confidence.)
A couple of months ago, I decided I wanted something with a little more color to grace the spot.
I chose the pattern for this wall hanging from Kim Diehl's book, Simple Traditions - 14 Quilts to Warm Your Home.
I'm pleased with the way it turned out and had fun doing it.
It's a combination of pieced work and applique, and I hand quilted it. Now I can cross that project off my list. Yippee, a finished piece and some color in the corner!

We had 1/2" of much needed rain yesterday and overnight. Much more forecast for today and tomorrow. Both Papa Pea and I spent much of the drizzly day yesterday digging through the built-up mounds of "stuff" on our desk tops. I actually made it to the bare wood of mine and washed it off. (How does a desk top get so dirty if it's totally covered with papers?)
Today I'm in the kitchen restocking the freezer with soups and maybe some cookies.
I'm nearly done planting in the garden. Just the beans, squash, eggplant, corn, peppers and such that need some consistently warmer temps before planting the seeds or setting out the transplants.
