While the North and West are still in Winter we are in deep Spring! The temps are climbing into the 80's and it is lovely! Everything is blooming:) I think this is my favorite time of year!!! The allergens have been low but the Ragweed has a slight presence:(

I did get some quilting done this week along with my Bee:)

So now onto pictures:
This Ruth Ellen's Bargello quilt.
LOTS of custom quilting on this one:)Was a lot of fun especially the filler in the background... had never done anything so free style before.. will do again. There are feathers, swirls, paisleys, and pebbles scattered throughout the background.
A red backing really showed off the quilting:) Remember you can click on the picture to make it bigger:)

Pat made this as a wedding gift. A nice Oriental panel.
Just quilted golden loops all over.
Love the backing made with the leftovers:)

Hope everyone wore their green yesterday?? My family is Scottish so no green for me:)

What seemed like a short week turned into an even shorter one with the time change....UGH!

Had Lunch Bunch this week and also had to take a sick day.... called the boss and she said to stay at home so I did:) HA!!! Cedar attacked me pretty good... it is now out of the allergy report and I am feeling much better! This will last until the Cottonwood blooms:) I know always something!

Well I did get a bit done anyways....

Marylyn made this wonderful Texas Flag quilt for her son in law for his bday next month.
Lots of fillers... curlz, stippling, swirls and mini loops along with the beadboard border.
Nice closeup of quilting.
Western backing is perfect!
Millie rosette #6 is moving along nicely!

The temps have warmed here in the South and the storm chances are on the increase:( Had a rough one come through Wed night with lots of thunder, lightening, and 3/4 in of rain most of it going sideways:( Did get a bit in the studio and had to clear out one of my cabinets and gave it away. It was getting pretty unstable with me moving it all the time:( I have ordered a 4 shelf cart that will be on wheels so took care of that:) So when this front blew through it kept blowing in Thursday and I was in it most of the day running errands and by the end of the day I was miserable:( Carried on through all day Friday until I started feeling better Sat... thinking cedar allergies:( UGH!!! Oh well life goes on and I will be back at the quilter Monday:)

Did get a few items done:)

Mary from our Dallas group mailed this one to me to quilt:)
Has a lot of fun playing:)
And you can see it on the backing:)
