soft and delicate

I brought home a bunch of white tulips yesterday. They are on the window sill making the room so peaceful. After a long slumber it is wonderful to see nature coming alive in its many forms.

Fresh flower scents, rain drops, tender leaves of trees, chirping birds prompted me to start a nature themed quilt with pale spring like colors. 

We turn a corner and suddenly a bright flower shooting out of the dirt takes us by surprise. I was tempted to put a pop of that color in the center.

The activity outside is bustling and busy... rosy nosed pups and yellow beaked baby birds will soon be here to complete the happy picture. 

I am simply cutting 1.25" wide strips and piecing them into a Courthouse step pattern. Block size is around 7.25" unfinished.
To portray the colors I had in mind, I thought gauze fabrics with their soft weave and delicate colors will suit better. If you are interested in double gauze fabrics, fabricworm.com, fabricsupply @ Etsy and Superbuzzy have an adorable selection. I got most of my fabrics from these shops.

How are your spring gardens coming along? We are excited about going to the nursery over the weekend and plan for our tiny balcony garden ( ' v ' )
