Library Quilt & Birds

I've finished quilting and binding the guild quilt.  The pattern is Heather Givans' Personal Library, and most of the print fabrics are various lines of Heather's as well.  My guild mates made the quilt top and I quilted and bound it.  This quilt will be a fundraiser for the local Dolly Parton Imagination Library.  It measures approximately 57" x 62".  I did a full custom quilting job on this one and had fun trying all sorts of patterns and techniques on it.  I hid eight book titles in the quilting too.

I'm currently quilting an all-over pattern on my #sewcialbeesampler quilt.  I'll be working on a fully hand-pieced quilt for a customer next week.  Do you have a top that needs to be quilted?  Check out my long arm quilting tab for more information and pricing.  I'd love to help you finish your quilt.  Use the contact form to send me a message.

Yesterday I noticed we had a Baltimore Oriole on the feeder.  That's the first one I've seen this spring. We now have the jelly feeder out and I put out a hummingbird feeder, figuring that if orioles are here, hummingbirds should be too.  While we haven't seen a hummingbird land on the feeder yet, we did get buzzed by one last night.

While I was waiting to get a good shot of the oriole, I had fun taking pictures of a few other visitors.

Spring in Indiana is so pretty for a few weeks while the redbuds, dogwoods, and other flowering trees are showing off.  It's also big pollen season.  We take the good with the bad, right?

I have one iris blooming.  Funny, but I don't remember planting this one!
Most of my daffodils are done now, but I have one pretty clump still.
The peas and baby bok choy are sprouting, but still no signs of the lettuce.  I'll likely need to replant that.  I did use pretty old seeds.  Next time I'll use some newer ones.

My husband is finishing off his master's degree this week.  We are so happy to have it complete! 

Anyone headed to Paducah this week?
