April showers (and snow) - so long

April 2012

Well, looking back, I did manage a few things in April - blocks, swaps, a baby quilt and tutorial and progress on two quilts. More than I thought.

Red

Especially since I also designed, pieced, quilted and finished Red.

I love this shot with the shadow of the tree.

I am linking to Lynne at Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day. There will be lots of inspiration posted there - I will be checking it all out on the weekend, you should too.

This week is crazy busy at work, I have emails to write and blogs to read, it settles a bit this weekend and then I am planning and packing and sewing for London. I can hardly wait.

Best,

Leanne

  17. Leanne--love that RED quilt of yours, and the silhouette of the tree lends a lovely counterpoint to your perfect quilting. You've had a very busy April, putting the rest of us to shame, but oh--so fun to see your projects all lined up in a gallery. That's really a very good idea, because it makes us stop and slow down and realize how far we've come.

    Have a grand time in London, even though you don't leave just yet (I'm terribly jealous!). Say hi to the Queen. My son was there last week and brought me home a Jubilee souvenir--I was thrilled. I'll look forward to reading about it when you return.

  20. Stunning quilt! I love the contrast between the bits of patchwork and wholecloth.

  21. Red is gorgeous! I like how the quilting really adds a lot of texture and plays against the stripes of the colored fabric. It all ties together beautifully! What a lovely April mosaic too. :)
