April is on its way…

Tomorrow…actually, I am not big on the April fools thing so I decided not to compete with all that and post today with my April Pillow and Quilt combo…I hope you love seeing some of my antique quilts on the bed in these posts…as I love using them to decorate…These quilts being made all those years ago…and us in this modern world still loving and appreciating them…my heart is full when I am admiring and appreciating this person’s work…created with her hands and with all the love they put into their work…PGApril LB
How about this purple and white quilt?  Bet you didn’t think that was going to happen! But this quilt is in perfect condition and expertly quilted, easily pieced/re-designed with our HST papers…LB PG april
Hopefully these pics show this exceptional workmanship…
Now for my part…designing a pillow to coordinate…This pillow was easy enough…purple quilt…what purple in spring? Lilacs…and you all know I love stitching those flowers in wool like geraniums, hydrangeas and now Lilacs…Here are some closer ups…Bongean AprilTo replicate the quilt Moda has the perfect Bella color to pull off the reproduction…you can see I used it in the pillow as a accent sashing…CLICK HERE to order quilt or pillow or both..
