Saturday Smiles

It was time to change out my quilt in the kitchen for spring.  I pulled out this one I made a couple of years ago.  It has such bright, cheerful colors.

The pattern for this quilt came from the book, "Quilting in the Country" by Jane Quinn.  I highly recommend this book.  There are a lot of fun projects.

I picked up this book yesterday.  I cannot believe how many cute projects there are in this book.  I love her use of color and the combination of fabrics.

How fun is this vintage carriage with a parcel full of ducks.  I can't decide what a want more, the ducks or the carriage!

This darling elephant is one of many animals found inside.  What a fun use of vintage crochet potholders and trims.  The possibilities are endless.

She offers many simple projects that can be made quickly for either a baby shower, or just for your own child when you can no longer get those pesky stains out of your current bibs.

I think my favorite items are all the different animals, from ducks, to lambs to bunnies and more.  The pictures are dreamy and you'll want a hot cup of tea and a comfy chair to savor this book.

Have a lovely day,
