Here I go again! This time, I'm making a quilt for a cause. Spring has arrived here in New Hampshire, but the winter cold just holds on. It snowed yesterday and is flurrying today, the second day of Spring. I am in need of color, so I've pre-washed and ironed the colors of sunshine and warm summertime skies and am starting a quilt that will be donated to a child in foster care who needs some love and care.
The borders, backing and edging are purchased and waiting for a pre-wash and ironing, before I begin cutting the pieces. As long as this cold weather continues, I'll keep on piecing quilts. For all my friends out there in cyberspace that like sewing, this quilt is being made as part of an on-line project called Hands2Help. If you're curious, you can click on the image in my sidebar here at Buch Handling and it will take you to Sarah Craig's site, Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Sarah is organizing the project and has a great introductory post that explains the charities and deadlines for completing the quilts.
I lamented the lack of crocuses and daffodils this week. Instead of moping too much, SB and I hosted a St Patrick's Day dinner party and bought a big bouquet of Easter color flowers. Spring colors are perking me up! The real deal out in the yard can't be too far off! Happy Spring!
