Quilt/Sewing News, Kona Cotton 'Splash', Bright Modern Sampler Hand Quilting Progress, And Happy Easter!

I've started sewing an apron for my DDIL.

Apron pocket detail here.

My afghan/blanket project is coming along, for another DDIL.

More hand quilting is getting done on my Bright Modern Sampler.

Here it is in 'flimsy' stage.
Happy Easter to you and your family!

Happy Almost Easter!

From Rancho Palos Verdes, where we have mild spring weather, sun and clouds.
How do you and your family celebrate Easter?

This last week I worked on a sewing project/apron, and more crochet on my Afghan project, both are for DDILs.

And hand quilting progress has been made on my Bright Modern Sampler. I stretch it out on my bed during the day so I can enjoy looking at it, it's bright and cheerful after all, might as well appreciate it during the process.

Have you seen Robert Kaufman's new Kona Cotton color of the year? It's a turquoise they're calling 'Splash!'
I do love a good turquoise and a lot of my current projects have turquoise in them.

That's the news from the rancho,
 where I'm remembering to be thankful and spring is in the air.

I'll be by to visit.

Great fabric for the apron. The teal dots look wonderful with the watermelon. A great summer theme.
It looks like you have several projects moving forward. Happy Easter.

Thank you, Linda for the encouragement!

Thanks Ann.
Yes, I'm working on several, when I make progress on one then that success rolls over to the others.
And turquoise, one of the many colors in the sky and ocean on a clear spring morning.

What a beautiful colourful post. All your projects are so bright and happy. I especially love what is going on with that apron - great fabric choices.
