I am writing this on the most beautiful sunny day. The colors are saturated and the daffodils are opening up. Here’s a couple of pictures taken in 2011 in the Skagit Valley near the La Conner Quilt Museum where they grow fields and fields of daffodils and they are so pretty at this time of year.
I love the feel of spring with everything bursting open and the richness of the colors, as well as the warmth of the sun after winter. In the last few days the cherry blossom has opened up – a lovely pink. Here’s my spring table runner inspired by the spring flowers and made from 12 of my Bargello blocks as featured in my book Bargello Quilts with a Twist.
