March Winds

Standard

Ta dah!

I’m calling this wall quilt March Winds because it’s March, it’s spring, these colours scream “spring” to me, and the leaves look they are blowing across the quilt.

In fact, where I live the leaves aren’t out yet and butterflies are nowhere to be seen. But this brightens up my dining room and matches my table runner and placemats.

The size is 42 by 32 inches. I built it with 8 inch blocks made up of 16 2-inch squares. The sun block was a later addition to the plan.

The zipper trees were inspired by a friend’s artwork and the leaves are fused with Heat ‘n Bond. The afterthought butterflies are glued on to maintain some dimension. I just happened to have some butterfly fabric in the stash.

I’m happy with the result, despite the imperfections, of which there are many.

Happy spring, everyone!
