After a few days of spring-like weather, old man winter reminded us that he is still in charge . . . at least for a few more weeks
5" of snow definitely warrants some spring-like quilt colors.
Pattern in based on Rachel's (of p.s. i quilt) Flipside quilt.
I had fun fussy cutting the corner stones.
Love the colors of the Central Park line by Kate Spain for Moda.
I experimented with "pressed open" seams. I've always been a "press to one side" kind of gal. It seems like everyone has an opinion on how it absolutely must be done. I think it's all a matter of preference. Although it took longer to open up those seams, I found that my seams didn't warp as much, nor did I lose as much fabric into the fold of the seam.
A taste of spring on a wintery day.
Basting and quilting will commence this afternoon.
