i should have...

I should have started this quilt for my daughter the day she as born! 

My daughter has made countless trips to the quilt shop with me in her first fourteen years and if she behaved I let her pick out a fat quarter.  Quickly a pattern emerged and it become obvious that she loved 1930-40 reproduction prints.  Her sweet sixteen birthday is just around the my mind... and I thought I'd pull out her fat quarters along with some of my fabric and stitch a quilt for the occasion.  Each spring she gardens with me so I thought I'd make it a grandmother's flower garden to highlight her fabrics. I only wish I would have started years ago because having less than two years to finish piecing and quilting it makes me feel a little behind. Ok, a lot behind!

an old WIP

As much as I'd rather be out gardening or riding my bicycle, the weather is not cooperating. I've pulled out an old work-in-progress and began stitching the blocks into rows. 

After posting on Facebook and recently trying Instagram, I've decided I miss blogging and reading blogs. I don't know how often I will post, but I definitely miss having a record of my days.
