Spring is in the Air

Spring Bird with Umbrella, Free Motion QuiltingGood Morning, Quilters!

Spring is in the air here in Minnesota!  (With occasional blasts from Old Man Winter…)

Soon the birds will return…a little rain…and then FLOWERS!  I am so looking forward to a garden flush with flowers!

In the meantime, I will enjoy the return of all the pretty birds.  Eastern Blue birds are my favorite!

In the background, the matte finish, King Tut cotton…just for texture.

  1. This is stunning! You have a genius for designing, free motion quilting, writing, and blogging. The work you share is absolutely inspiring. Thank you so much!

  2. Your little bird quilt is darling!! The umbrella gave me an idea for april showers! My fave are Eastern Bluebirds too…we usually don’t get them but I’ve had a pair here the last four years or so! Haven’t seen them yet but had two pair of bluebirds fighting over one of my bird houses just the other day.
    So excited for you on the webinar…are you excited!! It’s going to go great! So did they come to you or are you at a studio somewhere? I want to hear all about it!!! See you soon!

    Oh my, your sewn picture is so adorable. Just the cutest thing I have ever seen.
    Lori, you really are an inspiration

  4. Your little blue bird is just like you – always prepared. She’s ready for those April showers.

    Thanks not only for the design but for letting us know what type thread you used. Those of us who were sewing clothing when there was only 1 or 2 types of thread have a lot to learn. By following your blog we learn not only about fabric, design, doodling, etc. but we learn about threads as well. If you want to produce a quality product, you must use quality products.
