Spring . . . Maybe, Maybe Not

After living in Colorado for something close to 30 years I'm used to this . . . sort of.

Yesterday our front garden looked like this . . .

Today it looks like this . . .

Tomorrow it will look like the first photo again . . . I hope. Springtime in the Rockies. You just never know what to expect. Maybe that's why the northern Colorado shops join forces this time of year for a shop hop all in one location and call it Springtime in the Rockies. It's coming up April 11-12.

Since spring is so slow to arrive here, I get my fix of color playing with my fabrics. Last week I had a pile of these . . .

By the end of last week they became this lovely pile of blocks . . .

And this week they are on their way to becoming a finished top. Here's a sneak peak . . .

This is just one of four new patterns I hope to have finished and released in May. Fingers crossed.

Linking up with Cindy at Live a Colorful Life for a Really Random Thursday.

  2. Ooh, that sneak peek is just beautiful!!!

  3. Yummy! Those are my colors! And that's just the perfect background color. Is that Kona Snow? The block alone is neat, but a whole bunch of them are NEATO!

  4. Love the design and the colors. Thanks for sharing. I live in Minnesota and we just received around 7" of snow after having days in the 50's.

  5. Oooh I love the rainbow mixed with the white and grey. Love where you're going with this. It's chilly here today after hitting almost 90s yesterday. crazy!

  6. Those poor flowers, oh my. Pretty progress you've made. It's lovely to see your quilt blossom.

  7. That's a big change in the weather. Wonderful, happy, vibrant colors.

  8. The quilt is beautiful, love all the colors!!

  9. OOOH! You do entice me with your sneak peeks! It reminds me of the one we all did for our MCM, but with the snap, crackle and pop of bold bright colors. Can't wait to see where you are publishing them all! Congrats!
