Spring Fling, Improv Experiment

Ornamental cherry trees blossoming at the pool.

Closer view to lift your spirits.

Experimenting with improv. blocks.

I'll border this with 1 1/2" gray then a wider border of muslin.

Monday, happy Monday!
The birds are insisting it's spring around here. The hawthorns, crabapples and ornamental cherries are making a big push for spring too. Excitement is in the air.

I've been putting together a small quilt to see the possibilities of the improv. block I decided on. I used scissors for most of the cutting and I liked using them. When I first started sewing and quilting there were no rotary cutters or mats. We all used scissors and it worked out fine. This little quilt will have a 1 1/2" border of gray and a wider muslin border, the binding will be the yellow  fabric I used in the blocks.
Speaking of excitement, Barbara Brackman's, Civil War Quilts blog
