A Spring State of Mind


I know the official start of spring is still a month away. But it was time to change out the quilts for the ones that just say "beautiful days and temperatures are almost here!"  The first spring quilt to come out of the closet was my  "Sea Glass" quilt made with Amy Butler's Daisy Chain line. I hung this quilt on a hallway wall that I can see from my kitchen, and I smile everytime I walk by or notice it out of the corner of my eye.


Of course nothing says "spring" more than my 3 Verna quilts--so they are all "out and about" and part of the home decor right now as well!  What fabrics or quilts say "spring" to you?

Oh those quilts are so lovely! I love the daisy quilting on your Daisy Chain quilt!

I'm thinking spring too. The birds are starting their 'spring' song. It's a little different than their 'winter' song :D

Darlene said...

Spring is my favorite season so I'm anxious to start pulling out a variety, too. Pastels, 30's, etc all say spring to me. :-)

Your spring quilts are lovely, Sherri.

You have some really pretty quilts. The sunkissed line is looking very springy to me right now.

Jessica said...

Gorgeous quilts! Yay for spring!

Your quilts are just breathtaking... so soothing to look at. I love those fabrics! Daylight Savings begins in 18 days... I think it's worthy of celebrating & the sooner the better! I think I'll break out my Spring quilts too... nevermind that it was 30 degrees this mornig!

I made a tulip wall hanging yesterday. It was my "I NEED SPRING NOW" fight against SAD and the gloomy weather here. Now that it's hanging, it really does feel like spring is coming, despite snow on the ground.
Your quilts, as usual, are beautiful!

Do you think if I put out my Spring quilt Winter will go away? One can hope...LOVE your quilts.

If only...if only Spring was that close! It's definitely still Winter here, no doubt about it. But your quilts help me believe. I especially love the Sea Glass. Perfect name and perfect fabric. I can almost hear the ocean...almost.

Mama Pea said...

I love that Sea Glass one. That would make me smile every time, too. I talked about my prize on my blog today and linked back to you! Thanks again for the awesome fabric!

Sea glass is a perfect name for that lovely quilt.

All those Amy Butler fabrics certain speak spring! I'm working with'Sunkissed' at the moment, a little warmth of the sunshine has been captured in those soft buttery yellows! Just what I need :)

Carol said...

Love the sea glass quilt! Blue and green is such a beautiful color combination.

I'm getting ready to unroll by Verna Jelly Roll! I don't have any idea what I'm going to do with it, but maybe if I gaze at it long enough, something will come to mind. Is there anything better than Verna?!

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, it all looks so yummy! I LOVE your quilts!

Your Sea Glass quilt just says water and waves to me - definitely warm weather!
Anything that's not WHITE right now says spring. We still can not see the driveway because the snowbanks are too high!

Sachiko said...

Leanne said...

I have always loved your Sea Glass quilt! Makes me want to dig out the two mini quilts I made with those fabrics. Those colors are so inspiring this time of year.
