Wouldnt that be fun (hint hint Krystyna HINT bump in the rear HINT).. I am always going to Pinterest and if I make all I like well I wont have enough years of my life. grand inspiration however. I will take a challenge with my partner hows that? who wants to do the same challenge with each other and get as creative as we can get? if so hollar maybe we can partner up! (after the great one thinks on it) and I am READY for a challenge.
    Wonderful idea, Linda, but I think we've wandered down this pine needle covered path before. In a nutshell, everyone here has different skill levels. Taking a theme ... like a tree ... might be a simple thing for some, but darn near impossible for others. While we didn't all use the same fabric, March was a Bit of Green ... and everyone did that differently. Soooooo .... I have a suggestion. Why not start a swap with an object interpretive theme? Then you can do trees, frogs, or whatever. I might even join!

    I'm thinking flowers, lots of flowers. Cleaning up some clutter last night and found my book on 3D quilts. Hint!

    I am thinking I found me a willing partner to play my little game. now we need a theme.. is it.. fields of flowers? or barrels of monkeys? or in a nutshell? (that would be fun) or.. if wishes were horses... or see themes are awefully fun. a theme within a theme.. spring has sprung ..in Tahiti! Too bad no has their hands up in the air saying oh oh oh I want to do that! (grin I know your out there)..

    3d applique.. like flowers made seperately then stitched onto a quilted background? interesting buslady interesting... curiosity makes me ask has anyone here done a fractured quilt block? i saw one last boom and it was facinating. looked like 10000 pieces of fabric but boy was it spectacular. I was wondering how hard it is to make....

    Linda, I'm planning a fractured one now. We had to go to the house today so I decided to dig around in the attic and found a bin of weird scraps. I'm ready! And speaking of odd themes for you ... why not a 3D spring? Ha! In a nutshell? How about in a nut house? Next month is Quilty Chaos - Crazy Quilt time.

    ah shoot nuthouse nope live there was thinking nutshell someplace MY rear will never fit in. see I am seeing more like a SPRUNG chicken now take that into a spring theme and well it would be one unique (key word) wall hanging. I am definetely going out of the box on this one. Oh oh right after I posted the fractured quilt block comment Jaba has posted she just made one (was she listening into my thoughts again) on Anastasia Table Runner Swap and also the pic is on Secret Home Decor Swap amongst the last posted items so easy enough for everyone to go oggle. I want that I just wouldnt want to make one I fear. 1/8th inch seams? oh heck..I do that on accident. If I tried to do it wonder if I could??

    I went to Pinterest for ya'all and found these pictures posted of quilts when I typed in Spring has Sprung quilts (kid you not thats what I put in):Name:  spring 5.jpg

    Krystyna, I just LOVE the pin cushion idea! hehe Nothing like being subtle! I am glad that you seemed to have found a contractor that will fit your needs.

    Elizabrat.... "in a nutshell" or "nut house" would work for me! Since I've been nutz for years! lol

    I've heard the saying "two peas in a pod" but in this case, I think Onalee and Linda are "two nuts in a shell"

That quilt will be talked about in her family for a very long time for sure. Thanks for pointing it out. One of the gals in our group has been making sun bonnet sue quilts for a couple of her
