A quilt for spring ...

It may have been quiet over here for a while but that's not to say I've been not doing anything. It seems to make perfect sense that while the so-called start of spring was greyer than grey, my sewing room was reflecting the true colours of March and then through into April. I've been working on a custom quilt using a colour palette that was far removed from my usual choices and I've loved every cut, stitch and placement.

I love interpreting what people might like - it takes me right back to my work in The Time Before Children when I was given a design brief and then, more or less, free rein to create.

This quilt has all the colours of spring that I can find by stepping out just a little way from either my front or back door, albeit a little later this year than most.

I love close, straight line quilting almost as much as I love muscari.

I'm hoping this quilt is just right for snuggling under while this wind blows wildly today.

I've added it to my commissions page if you'd like to see it in its entirity.
