My latest quilting project

When I saw this on some ones board on Pinterest I had to find it so I could make it myself.
It is in a book called 'Quilty Fun' by Lori Holt.
I asked one of my sons to buy it for me for Christmas and since then it has been on my mind to get started.
 
  So here it is.. I did a little yesterday at my sewing workshop that I go to each week

I am hand sewing the tulips because they have quite small pieces to piece.. but I will probably machine sew the squares.  The one thing about hand sewing you can take it with you, or do a little in a relax time from the gardening.. anyway I am enjoying it and love it even more.
I do love this quilting but I still cross stitch along side it, can't just be doing one thing!!LOL

Hope you're all enjoying this glorious sunshiny weather too, to me it just lifts my heart and makes me want to fly!

A thank you to all that leave a comments and welcome to my new followers..it's so exciting to look at other blogs and to realise that even those of you the other side of the world, make and do the same as myself!
