The weather in the mornings has been glorious where I live, albeit just a teensybit nippy. I decided to take my Happy Quilt (officially known as Joseph’s Pinwheels) out for an outdoor photo shoot while Miss Baby is playing outside earlier today.
For new readers visiting from Amy’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival, my “Joseph’s Pinwheels” is featured in the current (June) issue of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting. I used polka dot fabrics of various colors to construct the pinwheel blocks, with solids as supporting cast. I am super excited that this quilt is going to be featured in one of the upcoming Fons & Porter TV episodes.
Working on this quilt is the first time I incorporated a significant amount of black on a quilt top. I found that the black really pulled all the colors together very nicely.
While I was snapping the pictures away, Miss Baby happily chased after robins that came to the playground. Happiness for me at that moment was definitely being able to watch my precious little one happily playing away. It’s a feeling of sweet contentment.
I am so glad you stopped by. To those who are regulars at Ivory Spring, you know I do love you! Your friendships have been invaluable to me! To those who are new, I hope you have enjoyed your visit. Should you have a few more moments and want to look at more quilts, 99% of my quilts are documented here.
Have a happy weekend. I will see you again on Monday!
