The birds are chirping as they build their nests and the trees are unfurling lime green leaves....ahhhhh...spring is in the air! I thought I'd show you an one of my "oldie, but, goodie" quilts today. Not only is it a favorite, but also, it speaks the language of flowers and spring!
Let me introduce, Blue Trellis, circa 1995.
I fondly recall collecting floral prints for quite some time to create this quilt. The trellis design is easy enough because it is actually made by adding a pieced sashing between the flowered squares. One of the reasons I love this quilt so much, I think, is because of the liberal use of white. If I'd been paying better attention over the last 16 years since, I'd have made more quilts with the same white plus color formula!
With narrower borders, or no border at all, this favorite could almost pass as a contemporary quilt. It would be fun to make it again, using some Kaffe fabrics perhaps.
I hope you are enjoying some springtime weather where you live!
