Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen today is the Vernal Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere) I am actually about 1 hour late (it happened at 8:14 a.m.), but my computer was getting looked at by the IT guy... Because I am kind of geeky, I could go on, but the is a quilt blog with a smattering of travel and cats, not a science blog - I am not that knowledgeable!
In honor of spring, here is a quilt that I rescued form a yard sale back in the very early 2000's.
She was/is hand pieced & hand quilted, but someone washed her in a washing machine and dried her in a dryer (I do it all the time, but my stuff is machine pieced and machine quilted) so some of her seams popped. Since she was damaged goods, someone decided to sell her. So I rescued her... I even mended some of her popped seams (Before I knew what I was doing - so I did a whip stitch instead of a blind hem stitch, but they are mended nonetheless...) but I found another big seam that needs a repair when I pulled her out for photography.
A bit close so you can see the fabrics.
