No, I'm not really tired of snow yet...it is still January. But in March, I know I'll be ready for spring.
Here's something to remind me of spring...it's a small wallhanging I made in mid-2004 after learning how to English paper-piece from a friend in my guild. The hexagons were hand-stitched together to form the flowers and then I appliqued them to the blocks. I did a little free-motion quilting on my sewing machine using monofilament thread.
It is thanks to fellow quilters like this friend (Happy Early Birthday, Mary Jane!) that I have been able to improve my skills as a quilter over the last 10 years. The support, encouragement, and inspiration that I've received from other quilters is priceless. And applique is no longer a four-letter word for me...
