One job I have got done this week is to complete my March Journal quilt. I know it is a late and we are already into April, but I really didn’t think I could get moving on this one. Sharon B’s hints were ‘Little things’ and when I first thought about the subject it was early March and the blossom was coming out on the trees. As we moved further into March the blossom was falling like pink snow on the ground and I received a postcard from Diane in America as part of my postcard exchange group’s mini swap, Simple pleasures of Nature. This is one of my favourite cards and reminded me of the Cherry Blossom celebrations held each Spring in Japan.
As soon as I saw it I thought again of the falling petals and the pink snow it left on the ground. The idea for my March journal quilt was born. I just did not have time to get the idea into fabric at that point and thought I might really fail but yesterday afternoon I suddenly thought the only thing that is stopping me is I haven’t started, (hope that makes sense) I just got out the fabrics and made a start and once I got going it only took a couple of hours to finish.
Hope you like it………..
Fusible applique, thread drawing on the branches and machine quilting made this one quite fast and very enjoyable.
