The blues have it!

A couple of evenings' work and here we are - a blue and cream version for Karen at work - bet she'll be surprised (hopefully pleasantly) when I take it in today.
The sun is shining brightly here in Somerset this morning giving a pretty true interpretation of the colours in this photo but the temperatures don't reflect it - we've even the possibility of snow over the Easter weekend - sounds like good stitching weather to me :o)
Mmmm I can feel purple, green or brown versions coming on, might even make a sand and aqua version for my living room. I'm sure I could find a little bit of wall space to put one up somewhere.

The wee hearts are very sweet. Enjoy your days off and do keep warm....stay inside and sew if that's what it takes to stay warm.

Happy Easter to you and your Family.

Two lovely little quilts. Your hearts are perfect. And you say this is a quick quilt? Hmm. Only with your applique skills. That many hearts would take me awhile to do! Still, tempting.

Andrea said...

Really pretty - I'm sure she'll be chuffed ! I'm hankering after some small projects - all my quilts seem to come out bigger than I planned.

Diana said...

It's really lovely, and I like those buttons at the corners. I bet she'll love it.

Wonderful little quilt (as usual.) Did you say snow? Please tell me I misread that! Oh man, now I have to go put the weather on.....

The heart quilts are lovely. It's good to work on something which you don't have to heave under the machine!

You forgot yellow! And orange, and what about red? LOL
That was fast! Amazingly fast. Still cute though.

Love it! Can I put in a request for a Yorkshire version to warm me up on my return. Prepared to repay with African fabrics??

I love it, still don't know you made it so quick with the applique. I think country colors would be nice too!!!

It is darling. I just love everything you make. Your colour choices are always fab!

Happy Easter!

Libby said...

I think one in each color of the rainbow is in order *s*

I really love your blue and cream one!

Shelina said...

You certainly have been busy. Both your heart quilts are beautiful, as is your spring swap quilt. Each gorgeous in its own way!

Karen said...

What a lovely gift!

Hope you had a good weekend and kept warm. We did get snow here in the end, but not much.

Lovely lovely quilts. How about spring colours?

Kim said...

I think this one's my favorite, but all of the little heart quilts are lovely! Something about this one with the simple colors and all the movement in the plaids, though, really got my attention! Nice work!
