spring will come

I started a new quilt last night. I decided not to go my "usual" route and traded colorful scraps for mostly solids (plus gingham, I really love gingham these days).


I'm quite loving it so far, but I do question this bright saturated green I chose. I'm starting to think it's my mind letting me know how much I really miss seeing green grass. This winter has truly been way too long and cold.


And, to make matters worse, this is what we woke up to this morning. Beautiful, that's for sure, but it's March and we're so ready for spring to come.

  1. Hey, your link up is right next to mine on WIP Wednesday!!! Oh no, not snow again!!!!!! It's in our forecast too. This quilt is a great color combo--something very original and would be great for a manly quilt. Hope spring arrives really soon!!!

  3. I love gingham too! It looks great with the solids. We've been having sun here, which is most unusual!

  12. Loving the gingham! We finally got sun for the first time in months this week, in fact for the first time since last November, it's not raining and everything... but we do have frost every morning. Oh well, you win some, you lose some!

  14. When I saw this on Instagram, I thought you were using navy, which would also be kinda cool. I LOVE the pops of bright green. Keep going!

  20. We had a lovely spring day today, and up to ten inches of snow forecasted for the weekend. I'm beginning to think winter will never end in this country! LOL

  21. I like the green, at least as it appears on my screen. Passes my squint test, also -- value blends nicely with your grays. I like what you are doing.
