Description

This little quilt pattern called to me  - I decided I didn't have time to do each quilt during it's month, but selected this one for spring and ordered the wool from one of the suggested sources.  I started with the same color scheme as the original, but with more red, with red ric rac instead of yellow (red is what my lqs had, and I liked it)  I actually had a plastic bin with red/pink/and aqua-blue fabrics set aside for a future project with an undecided pattern.  This mini will hardly make a dent in that collection!
Some in my family have asked, 'but what is it FOR?' and I have to say just for fun. Learning new things and because it makes me happy.
