Well I never thought for a minute that I would have to send out a notice cancelling my guilds Spring Bee Day. That is until late Friday night when the severe weather warning for freezing rain was still standing. It came a bit later than expected but it came. I pretty much spent the whole weekend hiding out in the house. Instead of working on guild projects I worked on my own projects.
I'm happy to say that my Postcard from Sweden quilt top is finished. I finished it at 3:30 on Sunday afternoon. Let the photos begin! I've given up on waiting for good weather to take the photos. There's no need to, really as Postcard does a lot to brighten up a grey day.
I really love this quilt and as I've said before I found it such a great way to see how the different colours work together. Dwight asked me who it was for. For now I'm going to keep it to use as a colour reference.
Here's a view from the other side. The yellows pick up the light quite nicely in this view don't they. There is a lot more red and pink and purple in this quilt than I would normally use. I tend to be more of a blue and green girl and I welcomed the opportunity to work with these other colours.
I have to admit that I got a little sick of sewing all the half square triangles together during the current marathon of sewing so I took a break to sew a couple of blocks for community outreach ( I'll share those later) and I managed to make a small start on Rory's quilt (that is secret sewing for now) so all in all it was a very productive weekend. I'll be joining the linkups at mmmquilts for the Postcard from Sweden quilt along, and at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.
Now I'm going back to waiting for Spring to Come. Do you think it will....ever.
