Finished Quilt Top

I saw this quilt on an episode of Will & Grace and knew I had to have it. I sat up in bed that night sketching it out so that I could remember what it looked like. I thought it would be easy to make. HA! A beginning quilter should NOT try to make a quilt without a pattern! It didn't turn out exactly as planned, but it's finished and I like it. I'm still working on the back and hoping to get it to the quilter tomorrow.

First Signs of Spring in Franklin, TN

The weather is gorgeous in Franklin this weekend! I went out to check the mail and this little cutie surprised me sticking up out of the ground. I planted about 200 bulbs in my front yard and most of them are starting to poke up. It should be really pretty around here in a few weeks.

The quilt shop also had some fun Spring blooms. I bought this little flowerpot full of 4.5" squares. The blue butterfly fabric is the outer border and the orange strip is the inner border. The kit also came with a package of flower seeds. Fun fun!
