Good Morning! I've been sitting here by my computer watching a pair of doves building their nest. They caught my attention when I spotted one of them flying into the pine tree with a twig in it's beak. Oh how I love these sweet gentle birds. To here their coo on an early morning, somehow reaches deep within me and touches my very soul. Enough said about my feathered friends......moving on to the quilt. This is a basket quilt I put together in 2007. I collected basket patterns and put them in a quilt. I have a plethora of different basket patterns and am considering turning my favorite into a new quilt. There is something about these vintage fabrics that I really do love.
Just a few close ups......
I included the nosegay......as you can see, the quilter did a fantastic job.
At this point my husband's arms got the shakes so he decided I had taken enough close up photos. Thought that perhaps this quilt would bring a little spring to my readers who are still living with freezer type temperatures and receiving still more snow.........just put the gardening thoughts away for a bit and continue to enjoy your stitching time.
"Its Spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've go it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so". -Mark Twain
