So that is when the central

and I chose to do Quilt as You Go.

And so...
 The Vernal Equinox has arrived!

very cold and very windy...
Spring by the Sea here...

My paperwhites have
begun to emerge...
so dainty and delicate..
harbingers of Spring...

  2. Uh-mazing! Nicely done. Beautiful panel too.

  6. Your geese are so great. The type of quilting you chose really enhances the quilt I love the zigzag quilting shown on the back side. Our first day of spring is pretty drizzly but no complaints here, we need the moisture, So happy you can see your daughter. My daughter has been so cautious during this past year to keep her family safe from the virus. One of her kids tested positive Monday and now two more of them are sick. It's not over~
