Spring Quilt Block

I received a Spotlight catalogue in the mail in Wednesday advertising a quilting expo at their stores on Saturday.  As a part of the day they wanted people to make a 12 inch square quilt block with a Spring theme for judging and then to be used to make community quilts.

So, on Friday night (nothing like leaving things to the last minute) I pulled out some nice cheerful fabrics.

I fiddled and faddled and cut out a few bits and pieces, before going to bed.

In the morning I made this block.

I think it looks like spring. It even matches my new ironing board cover that Mum made me for my birthday at the beginning of the year.

I was pleased to have my block to Spotlight on time and also to see that there were quite a few others.  Hopefully a nice quilt will be made from them.
