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…
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…
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…To 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..
Jess is also making a more “homey-warm-versions using these two fabrics…I am almost certain these are the two fabrics, but if you want to order the dustier version they are on our website…They are the Flower Garden Gatherings line from Primitive Gatherings…If you want us to put together a kit for you using Jess’s fabrics please call or email us and we will help you out…here is a LINK to the fabric

So here is April…I just loved this green plaid wool and how fast this went together…I know some of you will appreciate how “colorful” this one is…
Now that the business is over for the day…it’s back to cruising…I am on the Atlantic Ocean somewhere on our way to Europe…
Picture from my balcony pulling away from the dock…this is Miami…Ship is nicer than I thought is was going to be…you know after you been on one of the biggest…you think he others will not be as great…but I actually like that its not huge…sitting by the pool and being entertained, and getting a bit of sun…ahhh SUN!
My sweet tooth is getting a workout…
Here I am with some my “homies” waiting to get on the ship…it was fun…Hair is getting lighter….most did not recognize me…HA!…I love it! Well I have to admit…I still don’t recognize me in the mirror…
Did a little stitching yesterday….LOOK at Vickie’s Twighlight Garden!!!
and then…Heather made me a Jeter…replica!!!! How thoughtful…How sweet!!!Speaking of Jeter…I miss him…and Nick too…they are both at home…holding down the fort, making sure it doesn’t flood with the spring melting… here is our quilt model doing his job…again.all for now….
I am absolutely loving these monthly quilts and pillows!!!! Best idea ever! I love your hair and I had to look twice. lol. Hope you enjoy the trip and get rested up. thanks for everything you do for us. Paula in KY
The quilting on the purple quilt is beautiful & to think she did it by hand. It’s nice to break away from the usuals & put a surprise pop of color in decorating. Enjoy your cruise & vacation & No Snow.
Wow Lisa, I didn’t recognize you either but I love your new look. It’s so nice for Spring. And that purple antique quilt with all that hand quilting is beautiful. How did you do those lilacs? They look so real! Do you have a video?
