Earth Day!

That is the title of my new Modern Mini for April.
My "vision" was to create a quilt that represented spring crocuses and Daffodils.  I added the rocks because I live with a lot of rocks here in CT.

Here is my approach
Step 1:  dump out all my little scraps.
Step 2:  pick out colors that I like
Step 3 and 4:  Make "blocks" and set them in strip fashion
It is messy, but I really enjoy the whole process.  I'll be adding this to my fall Workshop Offerings.  It is such a great design exercise and I feel Everyone can do it!
A pretty Kaffe fabric for the back.
 Here I am proudly holding it upside down, lol   Which begs the question, is there a right side up?
 The quilting is undulating lines with white Invisafil #100 weight.
Wee!  I have finished the center and the star border of my Medallion Quilt.
I have a goal to finish this for a fall quilt show.
I hope everyone had a nice Easter.   We had a quiet day and enjoyed Easter Pasta.  I was able to get a little centerpiece together.
This year I watched The Ten Commandments.  It had been many years and is such a Classic.  It also offered 3:40 hours of quilting time :)
Gorgeous Sunset - looks like dyed Easter Eggs.
Thank you all so very much for your kind comments on my post about Gwen.  I've been thinking of her everyday and I'm so grateful for all she has left us.
