This is MY spring

Another little quilt to adorn my hallway walls is complete (once the painting is finished...therein lies the problem!). The painting is at most 40-50% completed, and my motivation is waning.

This was my 2nd attempt at machine quilting. It's not the best, but it's not bad thus far. I love the colors. They are truly me. Spring definitely needs that bright chartreuse. My thoughts are still pondering about the "ball-like" flowers. They are a bit folksy for my taste (ie., not my favorite), but I did them like that to mimic the flowers in the outer border (zoom in for a better view).

For those of you lurking around...my 4Seasons spring quilt is NOT this particular one. It may be quite similar, but a touch smaller, as this is 22-23".

Our spring is still looking to be light years away though, as we got another 6" of snow last night. This is an amazingly snowy winter. I don't think we have seen the ground since early December. It might be a mid-April spring :-(

Beautiful quilt ... in fact I do believe that these colors were inspiring me when I went to the quilt shop the other day. I returned home with magenta, lilac, purples, a pale lavender/green paisley and finally a gorgeous stripe with olive green and a type of periwinkle. The hard part is trying to edit them down because I can't fit all of them in my quilt center. LOL
