For some reason, this morning I felt like this on the inside:
But outside it looked like this:
So I decided that if spring won't come to me, I'd make a little spring on my own:
I borrowed the paper-pieced tulips from an MH Designs pattern that I've had for a really long time, but that is actually still available on their website. The MH Designs quilt is 11" x 18" and has 7 tulips. I made it once for my mother-in-law, but never got around to making one for myself. I don't know what took me so long! The tulips are a breeze to make and really sweet. My little quilt measures about 5 1/2" x 6" and here's how I'm going to display it:
I think it's darling on the little quilt frame that my mother gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago.
Now I have something springy to look at while I wait for the view outside my window to improve. Not a bad way to spend a Monday morning!
