Cheeful Daffs & A Better Choice

Just look at my little daffs today. It is now Tuesday morning and they have opened up heaps. They look really cheerful on a bleak looking day. It is a really dull morning so the flash on the camera took over. I hope we will get some decent rain.
This is what I will be using for Mum’s quilt. I just wasn’t happy with my earlier choice, so went digging in my cupboards. I had forgotten all about this. I bought the printed panel and border fabric at Millthorpe a couple of years ago. It is cheating, but the quilt they had on display was gorgeous.
It will be a medallion with blue thin borders. The vines and Jacobean flowers are the first border, then I will do a scrappy flying geese border and then make it up as I go along, finishing with the lovely border fabric. I think Mum will like this better than the other.

And…..while I’ve been typing this it has started to rain. Send her down Hughy!

The daffodils are looking beautiful.
That will be a lovely quilt, the colours really compliment the panel design.
