When it comes to the weather outside, this time of year always feels like two steps forward, one step back. Last week we had a great day with temperatures in the 50′s, only to be followed by a day of wet, heavy snow.
When that latest layer of snow melted and I just felt defeated by Winter, I looked out by our woods and saw these.
The daffodil bulbs I planted last Fall, starting to pop up. I am telling you, this mess of mud and leaves and tiny bits of green has been so good for my soul.
I’ve been trying to make sure the kids get some outside time on those warmer days. Between that and a sewing deadline that I can’t share right now, I don’t have a finished project to show you this week. But I have accumulated some new fabrics recently and they inspired me to take a little break and build a project pile from my stash.
I pulled some coordinating prints from my stash, including some new fabrics from Lotta Jansdotter’s Mormor, Skinny Laminx’s Up, Up & Away, Eloise Renouf’s Bark & Branch, and Violet Craft’s Waterfront Park.
I made a block from my Off-Centered Squares quilt pattern. I’m thinking of using one color family per block…we shall see!
Back to work on deadlines! And fingers crossed for a warmer week!

No project to really share this week…working on a deadline while spending mornings at the pool for swim lessons.
I’m excited to cut into this as soon as I finish my current deadline-quilt. If you aren’t familiar with Modern Yardage, you can find out all about their fabric printing process on their Informational Page. The neat thing is you get to select the scale of your print.
These prints (in no particular order) are:
Fun-Fetti in Twilight Blue, Large
Take Flight in Walkway Grey, Large
Berry Branch in Emerald, Medium
Veranda in Noir, Medium
Tidal Pool in Ocean Depths, Large
Coral Reef in Kelp, Large
Molecular in Arctic Blue, Medium
Chaise Lounge Chevron in Citron, Medium
But as I mentioned, first I am working on a quilt I can’t share yet…but I can show the yummy fabric stack.
Lots of Bonnie and Camille prints with a couple others from my stash worked in. Can’t wait to show you more!

I’ve been asked by a special family member to make a quilt as a gift for another special family member. I’m not sure any of them read this blog but I’m going to keep the recipient details vague just in case. I spent a bit of time this morning pulling fabrics. I’m pretty excited about the stack that came together. I was inspired by a little fat quarter set I had of Maasai Mara by Dear Stella. I can’t wait to show you the blocks as they come together!
