Baby at the beach

Spring arrived already! The almond tree in the garden is full of lovely flowers and the bees are flying all around making an engine's noise! The weather was so good last week that my children and grandson went to the beach and although the sea was cold they even went to swim! 

With spring comes again the will of sewing fresh color fabrics. Searching among my UFOs I found my Gypsy Four Patch top. It was exactly the kind of colors corresponding to my mood. 

I don't often make borders to my quilts, but as regards this one, I thought it looked somewhat unfinished and useless as it was not big enough for a double size bed and too big for a sofa throw.
So I decided to enlarge it in order to fit exactly to my bed. I began to choose fabrics and to cut a first band. Then I will cut rectangles and squares of matching fabrics to complete the top.

For the backing I think of using these lovely Joel Dewberry fabrics.

  6. Aux premières photos, j'ai aimé les tissus !!
    Comme ça fait du bien de voir des teintes douces et printanières Christine... Je pense qu'Athènes, les températures doivent plus toucher les 20° mais nous, nous en sommes encore aux gelées matinales et aux giboulées...
    Merci pour cet avant goût fleuri....

  7. Such a beautiful mix of colors. They remind me of an ice cream shop. I like your border idea. Spring has arrived! It's still winter here, but we're getting hints of spring.
