Spring


Spring is here!!!  Well, not really, but let's pretend, ok?  We're expecting 6-10" of snow tomorrow, so I need this.

I have finished my little wall-hanging, and as promised, it's free in my shop - just click HERE.  It's only free until the spring equinox though, so get it while winter lasts!  [The equinox is March 20th].

This little wall-hanging measures 9" x 18 1/2", a good size to put just about anywhere.  Put it on your front door and tell Mother Nature to get it together.  I think that's what I'm going to do.

I used a charm pack and a fat quarter for this, but you can easily bust some scraps on it!  The flower stems can be done by machine very quickly, although I did mine by hand, and appliqued by hand.


Not to mention the quilting by hand. [My favorite part.]


A very satisfying project, especially considering what we're facing tomorrow.  I'm going to look out the window and laugh.

Until I remember that Thing 2 will be riding around in a car for 300+ miles, and will have to drive home when work is done.  Then I'll look out the window and pray.  So glad he's with professional drivers.

I hope you enjoy stitching "Spring"!

Love,
Allie

Beautiful!! Thanks for sharing with us. I'm ready for a little Spring - it's dreary and rainy here the last couple of days, and more rain expected today. At least it's not SNOW!!

Cathy said...

As I sit hear looking out the window watching the SNOW I sure do wish it was Spring. Your quilt turned out so nice. Hugs

Kathy said...

Oh this is so pretty!! Thank you for sharing this pattern. What kind of batting do you use to allow for so much hand quilting? I'm doing some big stitch with warm and natural cotton batting and it's a little tough to do.

Hugs, Jan

Allie, Thank you so much. This is absolutely adorable. I was going to ask you about it after I saw it on FB, but didn't get a chance. It is the perfect little in-between project when you are working on quilts. Quick finish, quick pick-me-up.

Brrr. Its time for the snow to go, if you ask me. Sleeting here today, but the sun just popped through the clouds for a little bit. Stay warm.

Rachaeldaisy said...

You had a spring in your needle to get this finished so quickly! It's lovely and captures the promise of spring so perfectly. All the best for Thing 2.

Fiona said...

Such a lovely mini quilt.... we are enjoying cooler nights as we start moving towards Autumn....

Thanks, Allie! I downloaded it. I'm making a few blocks for the Block Lotto now and after that will go through my scraps for this one. I've been knitting a lot lately and need to rest my hands from that. (I actually have a splint on one hand!) The sewing is a good substitute.

Gorgeous finish! Thank you for the pattern. I'm getting it now. I hope he came home in one piece, and your weather is better than expected.

Jeanne said...

Definitely looks like spring is on the way - until I look outside. Your quilt is a lovely reminder of what's to come, hopefully soon.

Tanya said...

Well that was fast! You make all your hand embroidery and hand applique and hand quilting seem so effortless! Are there summer and autumn and winter banners also?
