Spring! Quilts!

I feel somewhat guilty that I haven't been sewing much the past few days, but I also feel that I have an excellent excuse.  Have you been outside lately?  We have.

Somewhat miraculously, Josh didn't fall in the creek at all (I didn't think to bring extra clothes).  The sun has been shining all week, but I bet that water is still pretty cold.

I haven't completely neglected my sewing - in my spare moments this weekend, I started piecing a new quilt.  Lots of Aneela Hoey fabrics, but also some Denyse Schmidt, Kona Solids and Free Spirit prints (if I'm remembering correctly).  It is an Anna Maria Horner design that was available as a free download here.

I love that it is a fairly simple design - the triangles in the corners adds some interest to the pattern.  A simple quilt for what will (hopefully) be a simple time.   Now that Spring is here, I don't feel that this quilt is urgently needed, so I'll  sew slowly, with the windows wide open.


  1. Love the quilt and your sons pants. Been doing the same myself these days. I also have an 11 year old daughter and love the skirts you made for her. Very hard to find styles they like at that age. www.sewknitgrow.com
