Signs of Spring!

Mud season is almost over  
and we are starting to see signs of spring.

My local group had scheduled a trunk show and class with miniature quilter extraordinaire, Leslie Muir Volpe for our guild’s April meeting. Unfortunately, she had to cancel so I filled in with a few of my mini quilts. I have posted most of my minis before, so I will share this little gem.

This lovely strippy was made for me by a dear sweet friend! She used one true antique fabric and challenged me to find it. Sue has a tremendous collection of reproduction prints. I had fun poring over each piece until I found it! Thanks a million Sue!!!
the antique piece is the one with the strawberry on the light background

I've been working on my April mini. Here's a sneak peak. Have a great day! 


  1. wow terrific clue! pretty colors anyway...

  2. Flowers in the snow are pretty in pictures. What a great quilt! Your snippets are colorful. I look forward to seeing the quilt.

  3. Love the snowman mired in mud. Too funny--unless you are the snowman!
    What a great mini. Love that piece of vintage fabric.
    I'll bet you put on a great show. Would have loved to be able to be there.
    Wow--you really gave that one away, didn't you? You are making a confetti quilt! LOL

  4. Your April mini is going to have tiny pieces!
    Love the flying geese quilt. Came back from VA and had to find my down jacket and wool socks. There are signs of spring but it is still cold!!

  5. Love the mud-season snowman, too cute! Your friend's flying geese quilt is so lovely, and the strawberry fabric is wonderful. I wonder if 100 years from now quilters will marvel at some of our current fabrics. The snow is finally gone here, though we had a dusting just yesterday.

  6. Oh I love your April mini... I know that pattern... HEEHEE.
    LOVE the flying geese quilt. AWESOME!!

  7. I love the antique strawberry fabric. I wish someone could reproduce it without enhancing or changing the design. I think your April mini is a micro mini unless those pieces are scraps from trimming the blocks! Hee hee!

  8. Oh what a gorgeous present !!
    Your pieces for the april mini are.... tiny !! Ouhhh !
    Enjoy Wendy !

  9. what a lovely gift! I have to get going on my april mini!!!

  10. Your April mini pieces are such a tease!! As for that very funny snow/mud man - he would be right at home in our driveway...And oh I do love that sweet strawberry print - wouldn’t it be nice to have that in a reproduction.

  11. Love the snowman picture. Poor guy!

  12. I love the snowman pic too! I think I found all the muddy spots in my backyard today. Love the spring colors in your clipped dig ears. I would have enjoyed hearing your mini lecture.

  13. Your yellow crocuses make me smile but that poor snow man needs to disappear until next year! Lovely little quilt from your friend with that great piece of antique fabric. I wonder what those little pieces will turn into for April's mini :)

  14. Love that strawberry print! Great job finding it among the millions!

  15. What a great looking snowman! Such personality! The little mini quilt is very sweet. There's just something fascinating about reproduction fabrics. I would have definitely been more into them if I had a quilt store closer that would carry more of them. One of my favorite stores that primarily carried reproductions closed down just last year. Course I only got to go there every couple years so I sure wasn't helping them stay in business!:)

  16. Your snowman really made me laugh -it looks like he's skidding across the mud on his stomach!

  17. I have being on blog Sites for a while now and today I felt like I should share my story because I was a victim too. I had HIV for 6 years and i never thought I would ever get a cure I had and this made it impossible for me to get married to the man I was supposed to get married to even after 2 years of relationship he broke up with me when he finds out I was HIV positive. So I got to know about Dr. Itua on Blog Site who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cured and let her contact details, I contacted Dr. Itua and he actually confirmed it and I decided to give a try too and use his herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely. My son will be 2 soon and I am grateful to God and thankful to his medicine too.Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Disease… Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Liver Inflammatory,Diabetes,Fibroid, Get Your Ex Back, If you have (A just reach him on Or Whatsapp Number.+2348149277967)He can also advise you on how to handle some marital's issues.

    I have been suffering from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) disease for the past four years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctors, few months ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the cure of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by this Man Dr imoloa and she drop the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr. imoloa telling him about my (HERPES Virus) well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me. I am now here to testify that i am no longer a herpes patient, I have experience a total transformation in my life,for all herpes patients get your herbal medicine to cure your sickness. And there has being rapid improvement in my health, I no longer feel pains and I wake up each morning feeling revived.
