Love those colors, just beautiful! Are you going to do the 2023 quilt?


This is so beautiful. So glad you finished it.


Such a pretty quilt! I never think quilts are too feminine. I’m waiting for my long armer to finish my new bed quilt made of Tula Pink fabric. It’s not my style at all but I need all the bright color in our long cold winter.

Your quilt is certainly cheery! I have a quilt I started ~3 years ago; a Moda Bakeshop winter-themed quilt that I gave up on because there were so many errors in the block patterns. I loved the fabrics and was so frustrated with it. Last year I got it out and came up with a new plan. I "retired" a few blocks, made several different blocks from other QALs, and came up with a new setting I liked much better. But then winter was over. Last week I got it out again and discovered I only needed to add my last border and it would be a top! So I will finish it. It'll be great for next year!


I'm delighted that you shared this quilt. It's inspiration to pull out a few more UFOs and see what I could finish and use or give away. Those colors in your quilt work beautifully together, and they are just bright enough to show off the pattern without overwhelming the room.


Doesn’t it feel great to get this project out of the UFO pile. Thanks for the inspiration!

That turned out great!! The 2020 mystery quilt is the next one up on my WIP’s to get finished for this year. All the blocks are made-I just need to assemble (which takes time!) but seeing your setting has me more encouraged just to get it done!


I love Fig Tree's strawberry fabrics! Your quilt turned out great with the new setting. The quilting sets off the blocks without overwhelming the overall look--icing on the cake! 🍰 Cheers to another UFO off the books!


really lovely! someone mentioned Moda Bake Shop. I had same experience...lots of errors in the directions. they were publishing patterns 'for free' that were not checked for accuracy.

enjoy today's sunshine because tomorrow it is turning cold again.

I totally agree with you. I am now working on the finishing blocks for a 2015 BOM. A little late, but my guilt feels much less. I have a quilt on my bed that I decided to keep. Mostly I have given away almost all my quilts but lately I have kept some. It feels good to start having a home with quilts in it. I so love reading your blog. I feel like a stalker since I check it so frequently!


Your quilt is a stunner, perfect pick me up while waiting for spring. I too don’t typically like large blocks. But, honestly when it’s beautifully quilted (as yours is), it changes perspective, at least for me. The setting you chose works so well, it looks just wonderful on the bed. I’m so glad you shared the back story, don’t give up on a quilt, you never know when inspiration will surface.

Beautiful!! I love the color scheme. Gentle but bright!
