The trees have leaves. Well, some of them. I can't believe it! I seriously thought that was the winter that wouldn't end.
I'm really pleased with the finish I have to share today. I'm calling it "Radiate" not only for the radiating diamond pattern, but because this quilt makes me think of summer...the radiating sun, heat, and.. lightning bugs (maybe you know them as fireflies?). Quilts probably don't normally seem like a summer thing, but in my house I like it cold...so I can relax under a quilt while I think about how miserably hot it is outside. Oh air conditioning...how I love thee.
Maybe enjoying the Oklahoma wind...
Lets keep our fingers crossed that we don't have a big tornado year again.
Anyway...lets talk quilt. I used a layer cake of "Oh Deer" and a layer cake of Kona Snow. Yeah...I wasn't so thrilled with the Kona Snow. It was cut all kinds of wonky. :/ But, I made it work. I did sort of a plaid quilting on it that I LOVE!!!
On the back I used some Ikea fabric (the flowers...I can't remember the name but can look it up later if anyone is curious) as well as some Alexander Henry fabrics ("Heath" which is a crosshatch and the goat fabric). My absolute favorite one has to be those lightning bugs in the jars. It's a Teagan White for Birch Fabrics. It just brings back so many fun memories of catching lightning bugs, back in Pennsylvania, as a kid.
I hope y'all are getting a taste of spring wherever you are!
