DWM: snow fooling!

 Last Tuesday I took pictures of the diminished ice along the lakefront.

This is the view from our front door this morning.

Three daisies to go

There is a garden on my design wall.  This quilt will be given to a P.E.O. sister who's been a mainstay of our chapter. She and her husband are retiring and moving out of state at the end of the school year. Linda W., another P.E.O., pieced the background.  After I finish the appliques I will quilt it and return it to Linda to bind. The pattern is by The Gingham Girls and was published in an issue of McCall's Scrap Quilts. (They used sunflowers. The P.E.O. flower is the marguerite, or daisy, and there were seven founders.)

See what other quiltmakers are working on at Judy's Patchwork Times   and Beth's Love Laugh Quilt


  1. I can't believe the snow on the first day of spring break, ughhhh. Could this really be the last snow until Nov??? But your garden quilt definitely brighten the day. It is just beautiful!! The vines with flowers really sets it off.

  2. LOVE your quilt! Love the color hues working together. I guess we will get 1 inch of your snow today but it will melt by wednesday .

  3. So sorry you were hit with snow, again. But please, please, keep it there! We aren't used to such a harsh winter (and quit laughing, I know ours wasn't half as bad as yours... but we hate it anyway after a while!) You are so generous with your quilts. Congratulations on another stunning quilt in the works.

  4. Beautiful quilt top - hopefully it will bring some warm weather your way!

  5. Good thing you can make FABRIC gardens. That weather looks dreary... ;)
