    Thank you. I think this quilt that I made is probably the best one I've made. I know that having participated in the DQ swaps has allowed me to improve and be a little more confident in being "creative". I guess I am going to have a busy weekend and upcoming week. MIL's bday is in March so I need to come up with something for her and hopefully I can be ahead of the game! This may be my opportunity to learn how to hand quilt from start to end with a doll quilt while I'm in down mode. Thanks for the blessings too!!!

    I do like the idea of having a theme because then it is almost like a challenge to the mind and soul.

    Okey dokey. In April we'll have a two color theme. If you have color combination ideas, let me know.

    OK. Colors of Spring it is for April. I was initially thinking pastels, but then I thought about those "delightful" bright yellow dandelions on the fresh new grass, and, of course, the deep purples and yellows of crocuses. My personal favorite reflects the Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Festivals - pink!

    I have to share this since it always makes me chuckle when I think of the Sakura Festival. Decades ago I was pestering a friend of mine to go to the Sakura Festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. He resisted and finally asked, "Why on earth do you want to go to a festival celebrating a Russian dissident?" He thought I wanted to go to a Sakharov festival! OK. I'm weird. But you already knew that.

    Colors of spring... hmmm. And only two colors? Will have to put my thinking cap on for that one.

    Jillnjo... your February doll quilt is coming along nicely. I had a lot of fun yesterday trying out a new (to me) technique!

    Krystyna is talking about using a quilting thread that is in contrast to the fabrics used in the top. i.e., dark blue thread on an pale blue and yellow top, or red thread on black and white top.

    Since we are going with Spring colors for April I will have to put on my thinking cap and start shopping my stash - fun, fun but only after I finish my March one.

    I know I suggested the two-color theme for the April - but does two-color mean you can use multiple shades of the same color? Think tone-on-tone or batiks

    OK. Should we allow three colors? I am going to have a horrible time with this myself since I've got tons of prints.

    Remember that the Theme has always been optional. I think if you have a print that you want to use then you just choose one other color to compliment it. We did say two colors not two fabrics.

    Interestingly, someone just posted a link to a spring color pallet! http://en.paperblog.com/spring-2012-...watches-64273/
    OK. Two colors. You decide what that means. But that's April. We have even done March yet!

    Wow that is interesting. I went to a guild meeting one time and a lady said that another good idea was going to home depot or lowes and getting the swatches from there because many are already coordinated so it gives one a better idea on what fabrics to match.

    Love the two color theme for April. Sew fun. Still trying to concrete my ideas for March. And need to mail my February doll quilt. But, at least it's all set to go. And I'm super excited to send to my partner. I love how it came out.
