Pink Blooms and Turquoise Maidens from Sew Preeti Quilts

It is that time of the year - SPRING!!!

Washington Monument in Washington DC

Cherry blossoms get all the hype.

Cherry Blossoms

But this is my favorite flowering tree this time of the year in this part of the world.  Do you know the name? Please let me know.

My favorite tree/flowers

I love these deep pink, thick and fluffy blooms. 

The tree in full bloom

The color is brighter, the flowers are more substantial and the blooms last days longer than the ephemeral cherry blossoms.

Thick blooms

Imagine these buds at the edge of a sweetheart neckline. You see ...

A little bit of aqua from Making A Lather

I have been playing in the aqua scraps. I made the flying home blocks in light and dark. I just saw this block called the humility block in an old magazine. I know why... I often get the pieces turned around and have to unpick and resew. And it is an easy block. sigh.. I have made some interesting variations, though. But, no chance, of pride on making this one for me.


I made 4 patches for the someday irish chain quilt.


I am filling the box, probably for next year.


I made the checkerboard 4 patches for woven checkerboard ...

aqua color? from Making A Lather

Aqua is the color for the month of April at the rainbow scrap challenge. I am not sure I know what aqua is. I am easily confused by turquoise, teal and aqua. my first inclination is that aqua is a lighter color than the other two. I found this online.

I guess for my projects it doesn't really matter, I can pick what ever color I want to use.
So, I have another crayon made.



And another wiggle row. But, that is as far as I got this week.


I am linking ...

Color Master Box of the Month: Fresh Water from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello, lovely fabric lovers!

Fresh Water  mood board

I can feel that sea breeze already… summer is finally here! Time to bring out the pool floaties, mouth-watering popsicles, and the refreshing drinks. My favorite part of summer is just wearing shorts, tank tops, and flip-flops all day. This is the time of year to take advantage of the sunny rays and relax by the beach, pool, and enjoy the water-parks. All these places have one thing in common- fresh water. So for this month, I thought it would be appropriate to choose this alluring “Color Master Box” in the Fresh Water Edition. In the ...
