April 2015, Garden, Quilts and Me

Hello April! I've been meaning to post in my little blog, so here I am finally.
Yesterday was my birthday! another! love it!!!
Hope everyone is enjoying their Spring and had a lovely Easter. Our family had a lovely Easter, we spent the day together eating and laughing and coloring. 

An Easter Prayer

Of all of God's gifts

Easter shows us our fate

Forgiven we will rise
And pass through Heaven's gate

This Easter remember
The sacrifice of a Son
And through His resurrection
Eternal life we have won

This Easter I pray
That the love of God
Is resurrected
Reborn, renewed
Inside your heart
God Bless You! 


So far this year I think I've made 4 quilts? not sure, but at least that many. I have 4 quilts to actually quilt, for them are just the quilt tops.

Here are my 3 newest quilts.

The top quilt is a cat quilt, quilt #1, which I used M. Makower cat fabric. Funny, but I could not find that fabric in the USA. I had to order it from the UK. Diamond Shaped Pattern used.
Quilt #2 is the Easter Quilt, which next year, since it was not done before Easter will be a table topper. The fabric I used in it is from Bonnie and Camille, Spring Hare. I did Ohio Stars on the Easter  Quilt, patchwork squares and large squares with a yellow gold bunny in the center. I used a bunny from Sizzix, that the pattern was given for free to use in the Spring 2015 Quilts and More Magazine. The quilt itself I designed on my own. Wow like that was a hard one. LOL!
Quilt #3 I used Bonnie and Camille's Daysail fabric, and the pattern for this quilt was in the Quilt and More magazine. 
That magazine inspired me to make 2 quilts that were not planned. I just had to make a quilt using that cute bunny and Bonnie and Camille's cute adorable fabric that just came out in time for Easter, but not in time for me to finish the quilt. 
The daysail fabric is brand new this spring as well. I have another sailboat quilt I am going to make with that gorgeous fabric. 

Finally we are done renovating the entire house, inside and out.
