Spring Emerging

More like spring exploding with this riot of pattern. It is based on the Scruffily Quilt from Moda Bakeshop, designed by Rachel Griffin of ps i quilt. I added from my stash but used some of a Hunky Dory layercake, charm pack, and jellyroll. I also made it one row larger, so it's a nice couch quilt size. If you were to just use precuts it would be even speedier to piece. I'm looking forward to quilting it, but another quilt is first in line (and already using nearly all my basting pins).

While we're out in the snow, here's the snowman kit I made in action.

What a pretty quilt! I love those squares. It makes me think the daffodils should be emerging, if not for the fact that it's 16 degrees here in Iowa.... Boo. But at least the cold days really put me in the mood to quilt!

That's a beautiful springy quilt. Almost made me want to wish away the rest of winter, until I saw those two cuties making their snowman! That picture brings back such good memories. I just wish I could enjoy winter half as much as they are enjoying it!
