After hiding under a big wooly jacket for so many months, it gets exciting to think about losing those layers and wearing girly skirts & puff sleeved blouses or even striped gauze shirts & checkered shorts for boys..


I think these fashionable kids already did some serious spring shopping.. I can only gasp at their sense of style! Don't you think they look adorable in their new clothes? I like the ribbons and delicate hair bands these girls are wearing; not to miss matching outfits for their dolls :)


now to pick shoes and handbag to go with today's dress


when you are all dolled up, it is really fun to call next door neighbor friend from the window to show off your new dresses to each other..


then make an 'ice cream' date and paint the town together in welcoming colors of Spring.

I really look forward to this time seeing people milling about in flowing dresses feeling the wind in their hair. And everyone seem to be in such a good mood with smiles and happy chatter! 

Hope you have lots of fun with your family and friends this Easter weekend  ( = v =)

update: The black & white fashion fabric I used in the first block is a Japanese import designed by Junichi Nakahara for Yuwa. I got it 3 or 4 years ago at 'Repro Depot' online store. It was an amazing store with rare fabrics. This fabric was in their Vintage selection, so it must be from an older collection. Sadly, this shop has closed its doors.
 (I paired it with a basic Lecien stripe in the block.)

Some of the fabrics I have been using in this Sunrise quilt are from at least 2 or 3 years ago. So I am not sure if they are still available. But if you happen to like any fabric and need info, feel free to ask me. I am happy to tell you more about them :)

These children certainly are ready for the adventures Spring will bring. Windows open, tea parties, gardens, and sweet new clothes. Adorable.
