Natalie's quilt update

Wow, this year just keeps racing by!  I can't believe it's been three months since I updated photos of my Natalie's quilt, first started here.  I didn't get to my quilting class last term hence the slow progress; only three more blocks made.  But slow progress is better than no progress, as they say!
Some of my friends have been updating and decorating the foyer at our church, making it look bright and welcoming.  My contribution was to make some bunting, one is four meters and one five meters. Unfortunately I haven't got a photo of them hanging but they really help to make the foyer look fresh and fun!
All the signs of spring are here but, to be honest, it is still pretty cold!  However, the sunshine and the flowers make up for the cold.  In spite of my love of winter, I am ready for spring!  Wendy xx
(Ha ha, I just spotted the spider near my little jug!)

  2. Love the bunting! It would look great hanging up. Way too cold and rainy at the moment for me - I love Summer and warm weather

  3. Gorgeous basket blocks Wendy - & your bunting looks so bright & cheery. Would look amazing in the foyer at church I am sure. Yes its very cold here still, our firewood is low so I am being careful with it. Your flowers make it feel like spring.

  8. The baskets are lovely, Wendy, you are right, slow progress is better than none! The bunting is really pretty. Our weather is like that as well, it looks like it should be spring but it really isn't that pleasant out there!

  12. Your baskets are going to look lovely when you finish the quilt. The bunting is great, they will look bright and cheery in the church foyer. It will bring a smile to everyones face. Weather still not settled yet, some days are wonderful with the sun shining happily but today is not so nice. Shirley
