Deana's Spring Quilt

Well, I just finished another stunning quilt made by Deana.  She designed the quilt using pieced blocks that she won 2 years ago at our last local guild show.  By designing the entire quilt setting and adding additional applique and dimensional flowers to these blocks she has outdone herself!  I just finished quilting it last night with custom designs in the blocks and background.  Deana will be adding a few more surprises to the quilt over the next few weeks too.  If you are in our area April 2nd & 3rd come to our guild quilt show "The Desert Blooms" and see this beauty in person.

Spring is just around the corner!

Well, at least I think it is.  Here in our corner of the world everything is still pretty brown and dead.  Hardly a sign of new life outside, although I did hear a robin singing this morning!  I thought I would share some of my own signs of spring.  With spring quilt shows popping up all over I am busily working on show quilts.  Here's a sneak-peak of Deana's upcoming show quilt.  A stunning beauty with dimensional flowers!

Other signs of spring at our house are the arrival of new baby bunnies.  My daughter's Chocolate-Otter Broken Rex "Hershey" had 10 babies!  Their eyes are just opening up today.... here they are napping in a bunny nest:

Yesterday was a pretty mild day weather-wise so my daughter had all her does out for some exercise and sunshine.  My backyard was full of rabbits tearing around enjoying their time socializing and nibbling.....
