Good Morning

Welcome Spring!

I named this quilt Good Morning as it shows the sun rising on our wonderful world. Spring is my favorite time of year when creation wakes up in all its glory. Living in the midwest we have had enough of cold, dreary days and fighting snow. Today it's been raining off and on most of the day, feeding my newly sprouting flowers. With crocuses in bloom and daffodils inching up, it won't be long before the redbud tree pops out in purple.

Sometimes you can use traditional quilt patterns to form other objects. Note how the 1000 pyramids pattern creates trees and the waves pattern makes the sea.

And here's something you might want to watch. The Quilt Show is celebrating National Quilting Day with two free episodes (available free through March 21):
Episode 202 Cindy Needham (there's a short segment with me toward the end)
Episode 802 Edyta Sitar
