I began making this quilt sometime in mid-2022 as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law’s parents. The top was made with Lisa Audit’s A Country Weekend 5″ charms, a collection for Wilmington. The birds, butterflies, and beautiful flowers remind me so much of their home, which while close to the big city, is remote and so picturesque. It reminds me a bit of my Granny’s home when I was a kid: it has lots of fun garden vignettes to explore and enjoy, each unique and beautiful.
While this was gifted to them for Christmas, I am only getting the chance to blog about it now. With the hustle and bustle around around the holidays, a family skiing trip, and then helping my Dad with relocating to an assisted living facility, my January slid past much too quickly! So here is February, and I’m finally pausing a bit to catch up here on my blog. I think this is the perfect quilt to welcome Spring, even though Punxsutawney Phil says we have to wait 6 weeks. I can’t wait to see Fred and Becca’s garden when Spring officially arrives!
