Happy, happy springtime! A friend picked me a little bouquet of lilies of the valley, my favorite flower with such a delicate fragrance. I can enjoy it every time I pass by. And out on my deck a little house finch is perched on the railing, singing his heart out. Bird songs are very special to me also.
Here is my May RSC16 16-patch block with a happy dancing bear just out of hibernation.
I chose green also for my Modern HST Sampler block Diagonal. I have some beautiful green prints from Barbara Brackman's William Morris Jewels collection. Since this one is a floral I also chose a lime green tone-on-tone floral to give a springtime effect.
My next WIP is the pinwheel row quilt I started last year. To use more of the fun fabrics I had gathered I made this braid strip. It was too short so this week I added a couple more strips and trimmed it all up.
The highlight of the week was Monday. Our Monona Quilters group of about 50 members here in WI held our semiannual charity quilt collection. A total of 172 quilts of all sizes were collected for local charities such as Project Linus, a local veterans group, homeless transition housing and others. Here are the quilts before we posed with them for photos.
I'm very proud to be a member of this active and generous group which meets weekly for show and tell. They give a lot of encouragement and support to all the members. We also have a giveaway table after the meeting where we can find many goodies and many of these reject fabrics are turned into lovely charity quilts.
