It is starting to finally show signs of Spring here in the Maritimes. The spring birds have started to return and I can hear them chirping in the trees outside the door. We still have huge snowbanks but they are starting to dwindle. Can't you just smell the maple sap boiling? I know my brothers are busy at the Sugar camps right now. The spring buds are starting to swell on some of our trees and the sky is getting a little brighter and bluer. You can hear the Millstream brook rumbling along as the ice and snow are melting. It has been a long winter for us this year but the quilting has been great!
Our quilt today is a lovely blue , green and white quilt. I love these colors. Debra tells me that this is her "Jewel Box" quilt and I think it is a real jewel. The quilt is 69" x 83" and is quilted in the pattern "Daisy May". The pattern shows up so well on the soft "Minke " fabric on the back. You can't help but love that pretty spring green border and blocks. It really is Spring! Catch you next week! Gwenda Quilts
