|Wild Mulberry Lattice|
Even though we had warm temps in February, then frost last week, it's officially spring today.
This wall hanging is a perfect springtime project. Wild Mulberry Lattice is constructed with 6” squares set in a lattice pattern. The 29” x 34” size is easy to sew. Purple, white, grey and navy prints are gorgeous together, and match my sewing room walls. I quilted diagonally with an angled blanket stitch alternating with a straight stitch. I finished it in February during one of those warm spells.
Have a great day—go outside and enjoy the beautiful spring weather!

|A Twist of Lime|
This little table mat measures only 17" x 31" and was quick to finish. I like the twisted rectangles in bright lime and white prints. It looks great on my kitchen counter with a wee pot o' shamrocks. I picked the cheery daffodils before the predicted snow but we only got flurries up here on the ridge.

I may be old and gray on the outside,
but inside I'm young, redheaded and Irish!

This quilt was finished in 2016, just before Christmas. According to my sewing log, I completed 27 quilt projects last year, eight of them in November and December. My new Janome sewing machine has been getting quite a workout, and I love to sew on her!
Never underestimate the power
of a woman with a sewing machine.

If anyone ever tells me
that I have enough fabric
and don't need any more,
I will stop talking to them.
I don't need that kind
of negativity in my life!
