I almost finished my first Spring To Finish for May. I realize we are over half-way through May but I have been pretty busy.
This has been a fun, creative project for me. I received this gorgeous charm pack from Alexis, my swap partner for DQS6, and got inspired to do something with it right away. I had always wanted to do a braid quilt so I started slicing up that charm pack with a braid in mind.
It was fun because I had no idea where I was going with it. After making one braid and seeing that I had so many little strips left I made a second one. By this time I was thinking that I would make a table runner and so I put the braids side by side and framed it with a soft pink Michael Miller Fairy Frost.
I noticed that it needed something more and some applique in the border seemed like the perfect thing. So I added some flowers and leaves. Love it!
It was so nice to not have a plan and to design as I went. I would take a few days or so in between each step and think about what I wanted to do next.
All I have left is the binding. I will for sure finish it before the end of May. I am taking it with me to a quilting retreat this weekend along with a lot of other projects to finish. I am looking forward to some down time!
