April Update

Where does the time fly to?

I am never sure, beyond the certain knowledge that it’s moving really fast…

As you can see from earlier posts, I’ve just returned from an exciting few days of classes and viewing at the April MQX show in Manchester, NH–with friend Gail Galloway-Nicholson.

Here’s our favorite quilt from this show–and I’m sorry that I did not get the quilter’s name.

I can appreciate the glorious work in this quilt, but for myself, I shy away from trying to make something with so, so much work in it.  I prefer a quilt that can be used and loved and washed.  Thus, I was much more drawn to this Bonnie Hunter quilt–Texas Tumbleweeds–done in a different colorway than what Bonnie did:

Bonnie Hunter is part of the American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine’s 2015 4-patch challenge.  And as you know, I’ve been making these “Bonnie” blocks right along.  About 10 days or so ago, Bonnie showed how she was going to set her blocks.  Bonnie used aqua, and I’ve chosen a limey green:

I’m working on the Coastal Quilter’s UFO challenge–due in May–so I’m making these blocks as a kind of leader/ender project at the moment.

And waiting to see how Bonnie is going to set them…

Look what I found along the front walk way today…

Snow drops!  Aptly named…
