On Wednesday at the Liverbirds my wonderful friend Janet gave out the final instructions for her new Spring Flowers Quilt. I had yet to start this quilt due to a number of reasons. One of them being that i wanted to make the quilt out of Luna Notte fabric. As gorgeous as this fabric is, when it arrived I felt it was not right for spring flowers. So off I went to Dots on Thursday and bought different fabric. Friday, I spent the whole day in my sewing room and made a start on my spring flower quilt. My other wonderful friend Judith gave me a big bag of embroidery threads (thank you Judith) and I decided to use them for the applique in my Spring Flower Quilt. I have to say this is the first time I have stuck to hand sewing the blanket stitch, I normally revert back to my faithful Bernie. However, I am delighted with the results so far and the little blocks for the quilt are growing.
