Here comes Peter Cottontail!

 It's that time of the year! Birds chirping, bunnies hopping, bushes and trees are starting to bud and the grass is staring to turn green!
 
 
It's spring inside, too!  

  
 
 
 Lori of Humble Quilts hosted a doll quilt swap a month ago. Our instructions were: 24" X 24" or smaller Civil War reproduction with label.
 Cathy made me this adorable quilt. She found the pattern from  Kathy Tracy's doll quilt book: 
 
My exchange partner was Randy of Barrister's Block .
This is the little doll quilt I made for her, using my handy "Quick & Easy Block Tool" from
C&T Publishing. Each block measures 4 square inches.
  

And of course--- Miss Abbie...wishes you
"Happy Easter!"

    Wishing you a happy Easter! believe it or not, we have snow on the ground in CT this morning. Still not spring here...

  14. If you've already got green grass you are way ahead of us in WNY. I'm jealous! We are still gray and browns here :(

    Abbie is such a gorgeous cat - my trio wish her a belated Hoppy Easter!
