Mosaic Monday and Other Spring Quilts

I can't believe that I haven't posted in almost a week! After 80 degree temps...
we had more winter storms, trees down and power outages.
This time at my house too. *g*
Enough already!
So here's looking forward to Spring:




A little sampling of Grandma's Flower Garden quilts.

I just started playing with the little hexies... I know, I'm a little
behind on what is going on. I always loved these quilts and now
 I have a whole new appreciation for them!
I can tell you that this is not the project for you if you have a need for speed!

My friend Mel stopped by with another one of
her beautiful projects.

I have been wanting to make this quilt from
Cindy's book: Flower Pots.

It would be a great Spring quilt!

Here is a raggy quilt that I had made and came back to me last week for a minor repair.
So I thought I would take a picture of it while I had it.
I had originally had made it for myself but it became a shop sample and then when I brought it home...
my sister had been over and "borrowed" it to show her DIL...
and as it turned out,  she declared it a birthday present for herself. 
I think it has been well loved while it's been away.

Here is a little project I started. Fun floral dresses made from
Sugar Flower fabrics.

And then I made my way back to my butterfly quilt.
Remember when I couldn't decide about this one?
I posted about it here.
I decided that if I added two more rows that it would be a better size. It would actually turn out square.
So all I needed was 56 more of these guys!

That Flower Pot quilt is so cute... I love those yellow and blue colors. And your little raggedy quilt that was "borrowed" by your sister is pretty sweet, too. But OMGosh, I just LOVE your little dresses made from the Flower Sugar fabrics. I love those fabrics...that is going to be a darling, darling quilt!

XOXO,

Cyndi

I just love the flower pot quilt! After I got through studying it i thought it looked familiar. It is a mystery quilt my friends and I are doing set up by one of them. Only I am doing mine in all springy colors. Now I know what it will look like...Too funny! I just love it though! I want it in the yellow and blue now.
I also am really digging the ragged edge one you made. Is is in quilting cottons or flannel? Same book? Darling!!
