Spring has finally arrived here in Wisconsin!  The sun is shining, the birds are singing early in the morning and my lawn is finally getting green again.  I love spring.  I think it is my favorite season.  The long winter is over and I have months of nice weather to look froward to.  While it is beginning to get warm, it is still too cold here to plant a garden, so what is a quilter to do?  Sew one of course!  imageI made this quilt a few years ago.  It was a paper piecing project that took many months of gathering together with some quilting friends as we each sewed our own gardens.  This week I pulled it out and replaced my winter wall hanging with “My Garden”.  Now, as I await being able to go out and plant flowers in a few weeks, I can enjoy this fully blooming garden in my living room .  The nice thing about this garden is there are never any weeds to pull, and there are no mosquitoes  or other annoying creepy crawly things to bother me.  I hope to spend a good share of time sewing this spring with my windows open, listening to those birds sing and creating new beautiful quilts.
