Springtime Quilt

Have I mentioned -  it's finally spring around here and it feels so good! I'm sitting outside dreaming about my garden this year and trying to figure out if I should move some things around. Last year it was so hot that I gave up on gardening after  awhile and hoped this year would be much more fun.  
 
Speaking of  spring and all things springlike, look what I found -
 
 
 
Isn't it darling?
 
 
 
I've never really been drawn to yellow in quilts but this one was so cheerful it called out to me and so I bought it purely for it's simple sweetness. I cannot resist a classic nine-patch design either. Technically, it's a baby quilt, not a doll quilt, but it's still small and hey - who knows? If I am lucky enough to be a grandma in the future I may get to use it someday. 
 
However, this "baby" seems to have taken it over for now . . . . .

Well, yellow in those vintage quilts draws me in every time, so whenever you tire of it ...
Sweet quilt!

Ophelia is a Maltipoo (Maltese + Toy Poodle mix). Right now she needs a good clipping so she could be almost anything : )

I'm not a big fan of yellow either but this quilt might make me change my mind.

Ophelia looks quiet content

Hi Kathleen, the quilt just looks like springtime with the yellow. Hope you are able to use it for a grandbaby sometime.

Your jewelry is lovely. I have always wanted to make some but never really wanted to invest in all the tools. I love all of the lavender ones! Do you ever sell any?

Have a tulip and daffodil day!

I wonder, which breed is your dog. We got one that looks the same from a shelter for homeless dogs, but we are not sure about her breed. She looks like your dog. With kind regards, Caro from the Netherlands, http://www.caro-en-rob.blogspot.com

Oh, I love this little quilt. I'm always a sucker for a 9-patch and that yellow sashing is so cheery!

This is so not you. Yellow.
But the ninepatches make things right.
It is a sunny quilt.
You are ready for summer.
