Spring Flowers - ALYOF

Happy spring everyone! (Or at least it is spring for those in the northern hemisphere.)  
A few flowers in my gardens are starting to bloom and I finished up a project so now there are fun flowers blooming in my home!




At the beginning of March, I dug this appliqued wallhanging that had been done for eons and made it my March goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes with Sew Bittersweet Designs'.  I finally found some time to quilt it up so it is all ready to share.




The shapes are all fairly simple so the hand turned applique was easy.  I had great fun choosing all the fabrics.  I custom quilted each background to match the shapes in the fabric and was really pleased with how it turned out










Until it finds a permanent home, I temporarily hung it between the front door and a window.  I can enjoy these flowers when the spring rains decide to keep me inside.






(...plus it is where I can share it with my friends and customers when they come see me!)

Thanks Sew Bittersweet Designs' for keeping me focused on getting some of these older projects finished up. It sure feels good to see them done!
