it's been a while

It has been a while since I last posted. Soccer season has begun and the evenings are very busy!
I did manage to get one of the feathered sprigs quilted and I am happy with how it fills the space.


Over Easter weekend, while we were away I was able to visit a Quilt Shop in Lacombe. I was so pleased to find this perfect backing fabric for my Bird of Paradise quilt.

I know I am several months away from even having the blocks finished but I couldn't pass it up. It was on sale :0) and check out the birds!

Happy Quilting!!
