Our guild did a charm square exchange last month and I decided it was best to get busy straight away and make them into something for spring . I had 56 squares to work with , some were multiples so I did my best to use at least one of each fabric in my little pile . I chose to make an adaptation of a table topper I seen in an older Fons and Porter magazine , the Easy Quilts of april 2010 . The pattern is called Spring Flowers designed by Paula Stoddard , seemed appropriate and it required 64 squares at 3" each so I changed that to 2.5" squares so I would have plenty of squares to make my topper work . The flower applique had to be adjusted some as well but overall it turned out as well as I hoped it would and is very springy :-)
The colours are a little deeper than this photo shows , it is dull dreary day here today .
I have lots of things in the works right now , the Splendid Sampler is keeping me busy as well as the weekly stars I am doing with Darlene of a Needle Pulling Thread quilt shop , I will share those at another time , right now it is time to make my way back to the machine . I hope you have a fabulous day and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by , it is always a pleasure to see you .
