Dreaming Of Spring

My husband keeps telling me that it's too early to get spring fever, but I'm afraid I have a bad case of it! Yesterday I checked these two books out of our local library. Both Garden Inspired Quilts and Flower Pounding have beautiful photos and lots of ideas for making quilts inspired by flowers from your garden. I can hardly wait for the flowers to start blooming, so I can try a few of these projects, but for now I guess I'll just have to be satisfied to read through the books and plan my flower quilts while waiting for spring to arrive.

LOL it's better than me 3 of the 4 BOMs I'm making are Christmassy! I think looking towards Spring is far more sane.

The books look like they'll give you loads of ideas.

Seems like it has been a long winter already and I am ready for spring too. After all, the stores here have seeds out already.

No not strange at all.
My DH is ordering all kinds of seed catalogs and such.
I saw a flower pounder once on Alex Anderson's show Simply Quilts and she made a block from them.
We have to keep looking ahead...;-)

Its always good to be prepared isn't it Susan? Sometimes the husbands just don't understand that fact. Those books are delightful. Enjoy and can't wait to see all the ideas you get from them made up!

I believe that you are not by yourself ! There are many of us who have "Spring Fever " already! ~smile~
I love the books . I have read that the "flower pounding" is awesome!
I had planned to spend January getting caught up on my reading ??? lol ! At least I am still getting some sewing caught up.
I am just happy doing what ever and I have been counting my Blessings . My list is too long to print but being allowed to have all of my E-buddies is a very special gift. To be allowed to visit with them and see what everybody is working on is so amazing to me . Maybe progress is not so bad???? ~smile~
