Spring Flowers

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen this quilt in various stages of completion. It took me a while because it kept being pushed aside for more urgent projects. Then, I had some personal things going on and stopped sewing for a month or so. But here it is! Finished! The layout of this reminds me of a slot machine but was actually inspired by The Marigold Quilt by Pen and Paper Patterns.

This past weekend was the 1st Annual Retreat for the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild. It was fantastic and really got me back into the swing of sewing (even if I did break my machine). I took the opportunity to get some shots of this quilt in front of this weird haunted house in the parking lot of the hotel. As you can see, the grass isn't quite green yet here in Nova Scotia but it's coming along. At the very least, there's no snow!
I also made a couple of pillows to go along with it. This was the last photo I took with my old phone - there's such a difference with the new one. Maybe I should do a shoot with them together. I probably won't, though.
Happy Spring, people. Hope the flowers are starting to pop up where you are!
