Almost Wordless...


I was going to wait and share this when it was quilted and bound.


But I couldn't wait...


It's spring-time sunshine in a quilt--and spring is just around the corner.  Fabric = Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda.  Pattern = "Sweet Spot" by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.

Have  a wonderful day!

That is SO pretty Sherri! I wish I had some Sunkissed for my Sweet Spot, but I don't. I'd better get started using another fabric!

Barb said...

I just love the fabrics, so bright and cheerful...!!

gale said...

Gorgeous. I love that line-I have to make something before I can buy anymore though..

Cathy said...

That certainly is a spot of sunshine! So cheery for a gloomy day. And you certainly are prolific; I envy you being able to get so many quilts made.

Patty said...

It is fabulous!! Brings a smile to my face!!

Myrna said...

Beautiful! I do love the spring colors. It's a "happy" quilt! Nice job on all those flying geese!!

Jackie said...

It screams spring! Spring is here in Florida already - complete with pollen and plenty of sneezing. It's worth it though to have open windows.

I can see why you couldn't wait to share!

Martha said...

Ahhh! Spring!! Love the geese, too. It is so springy my sinuses are starting to act up. Talk about the power of suggestion.

pcflamingo said...

Oh, so beautiful! I want that fabric! And the pattern too. But I must resist until I finish a UFO or two.

a little bit biased said...

Oh Sheri....it is gorgeous! Love, love the colors! I bet it will be amazing once it is quilted.

Janice said...

Sometimes you see a quilt or even a quilt top that makes you say " That is why I quilt, so that I can give people the feeling that I get, when I see a quilt like yours."

I love your top the colors the pattern all of it. Thanks for giving me that feeling.
