This is our second consecutive day of lovely, warm sunshine (yippee!) which makes me think spring is definitely on the way (albeit probably very slowly up here near the tundra), and if I'm going to get more time to do some quilting, March is the month to do it in.
Above is the wall next to the back entrance we go in and out of 99% of the time. That little rectangular, rusted tin sign above the light switch says "Let It Snow" and will have to be replaced with something more seasonal soon.
A couple of days ago I finished a small quilted wall hanging using some soft, pastel colors. These colors are not the usual ones with which I prefer to work, but I was going for light and spring-like for the piece.
The block I used is Mosaic Rose and worked up quickly.
Once I had the little wall hanging finished, I realized it reminded me a lot of a piece I did in the same color motif (although using totally different fabrics) years ago. The quilt group I belonged to at the time did a "challenge" piece every year that we unveiled at our annual Christmas/Holiday dinner. The year I did this one, which is a derivation of the Grandmother's Fan block, we challenged ourselves to do something with curves or circles.
The new wall hanging is not on the wall yet. The month of March is bound to bring us more snowfalls, for sure. So my "Let It Snow" sign has a couple/few more weeks to occupy its present spot before it gets replaced for another year.
