Spring has Sprung

I love Spring! This is the view from my front porch. The yellow tree is called a Golden Chain and is in full bloom right now. The huge bumble bees love it and it smells so good. The tree on the left is a flowering Cab Apple. It was in full bloom a couple of weeks ago. Not sure if you can see the mountains in the background through the tree branches. They are covered in snow still. We used to have a contest guessing when the last visible snow would be usually was the first week of August.
I got the binding on Janine's Buggy Barn Flower quilt. It turned out so cute. The fabrics are so sweet. I took it to work to give to her and everyone wanted it. Of course, we all asked who this one was for and she said "ME". I also got Nicky's quilt back from the quilter. I found another quilter...Brandy in Spanish Fork. She did a fantastic job. I put the binding on so it is ready to give to Nicky when we see her tomorrow. This is her 3rd quilt that she has made by herself. I hope she doesn't mind that I put the binding on for her. Her baby is due in a couple of weeks and I thought she might to have it ready.

This is a close up of the flower block. Brandy quilted a swirl in the center. I think it turned out really cute.

I've made 18 blue and red string blocks now. I think I need 42. Right now it doesn't look like I've used hardly any of the strips. How come scraps multiply??
Tomorrow is Memorial Day. We decorated my parents graves today and we will go to Logan tomorrow to decorate my husbands family graves.
Happy Quilting. Lynda

Love your spring pics and your quilts are great, as always. Funny story, at Knotts on Thursday, someone discovered your 'trash' from your string quilts and Kathie Zobell took them all home, she was thrilled - she makes all kinds of fun stuff with little scraps. We love to see her quilts, cuz all of our scraps are in 'em!

Love your quilts; just beautiful. I also want to enjoy spring now. That's definitely something I miss here in the tropics, the seasons. I'm so over the heat and humidity!

I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog because now I found you! I LOVE a lady who quilts! I bought the buggy barn book while I was in St. George last fall with the tractor quilt in mind. I haven't started one yet but I have two grandsons 3 1/2 years old who go bonkers whenever they see heavy duty equipment. I better get going before they grow up!
