~ S w o o n ! ~

I absolutely, positively LOVE picking up a finished quilt from the quilter!  The only part left to be done was the binding....took me a day and a half, for some reason,.and...Drum roll, please........
My Blessings of Spring:

I know, I know,  not showing the entire quilt.  But there are portions of it to follow:
Notice how the glass beads for the water from the watering can sparkle in the pictures.  Little star buttons; little heart buttons; ribbon rosettes, to name a few of the over sixty (that's right SIXTY) buttons embellishing this quilt.
The ladybugs!  The one part of the design that immediately attracted me to this quilt. 
And, of course, pinwheels galore!  One of my favorite blocks of all time, two of the larger ones shown here with the cute little umbrella with the heart buttons on the tips.

My "Bewitched" quilt has been quilted, too!  I still have to attach and hand stitch the binding in place for it.  I have to say it again...I LOVE picking up my "quilt" when the quilting is done! :))

It is lovely, Michele.
Looking forward to seeing the 'Bewitched' quilt. It is great to have a quilter. I get stuck in piles of tops...

How lovely is that?!

Great work Michele. How many completed tops does that make this year?

You are on a roll!
