On the Road to Spring

Here's a better look at my On the Road to Spring quilt. I followed the quilt along from I Have to Say... blog. I wasn't really thinking about spring when I decided to make this quilt. You may think from the colors that I was thinking about Christmas! No, I just liked the look of the greens and reds I had on hand and decided to use them. I initially wanted to throw a third color in the mix but couldn't decide on which one, so I left it alone.

The binding for this quilt is actually some wide ribbon I had on hand. I'm not sure how it will hold up to repeated washings, but so far so good. The quilt back is made from the patterned part of a thrifted king sized bed dust ruffle. I had to sew about 4 strips together to make the back and I like the way it turned out.

If you look down in the left hand corner, you'll see Miss Parker, she loves to "supervise" all my projects.
