Spring in the Bedroom

I showed you earlier the fabrics I had chosen to make a Spring quilt.
Well, it is done.   I got it back from the quilter and put the binding on.  Just in time for Spring to arrive (surely any day now!)
I wanted something fresh in a less traditional pattern

This is the back ... I don't like a plain back.  It seems like a wasted canvas.
When you fold over the top, you see the design from the front.
Janet Chisholm did my quilting.   She did a fabulous job.
Into the summer, I like to use a white Matleisse coverlet, and I'll fold the quilt at the bottom for a bit of colour.  This is how it will usually look.
It seems like I'm turning into a quilting blog, but I'm not.   It is just in between seasons, not much to do outside, I'm not incented to start a project inside and with all the rain I can amuse myself for hours sewing. 


  1. Hi Sharon,
    Oh my goodness, this is just beautiful!!!! I love it...
    I really need to work on my King size quilt.Since I sew on my dinning room table, I have to put everything away when someone is coming over and then bring it all back out after they leave.
    I love the colors you used and the fresh cool whites and cream, its just amazing!
    Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

  2. Beautiful quilt! I love that it isn't traditional.
