More Deep Stash

I used some more of my deep stash.  If you have read my past few posts, they have been about the monthly challenge that Cut Up And Quilt has for CUAQ Therapy.

This month's Villa Rosa Design is "Honor".  I love novelty fabrics and so I had some Easter fabric that worked up great in this pattern.  The gold fabric is "Millennium" by Jinny Beyer.  Not the oldest, but getting up there.

My husband was trying his best to help me with this picture as the wind was so strong.

Here it is at CUAQ Therapy, no wind.

I also made this one with the same pattern.  I love the silly little squirrels.  This pattern works so well with fabrics you just can't cut up.  Now I have more quilts to get quilted!  And maybe one more quilt to make....hmmmm

Spring has really been blooming here in western Iowa.  The new growth makes me want to sew!

 I did get "Lillian" pinned a couple of weeks ago when the Guild had a sewing day.   The fabrics are Kate Spain "Solstice" from a couple of years ago.  They are bright and cheery but not spring-like. But it will be ready for use for 2016 Christmas season.

I have been quilting on it.  I'm quilting around all the bigger white rectangles.  And it is taking me a while.  But that's OK, slow and steady like the turtle.  (But I am pretty excited to get this done soon.)
