My Backyard

It's springtime in Kentucky and it is beautiful.  The daffodils are blooming and the birds are making their nests.  I think this woodpecker is building a nest.  

I've also had time to finish a quilt top, my KINGSIZE 1.5 inch hexagon quilt, Tillie's Mosaic.  That is the name of the pattern.  I changed the quilt somewhat, certainly making it bigger to fit my bed.  So, maybe I should name it something different.  After I quilt it I'll think of something.  Sewing hexagons are the best portable project you can do.  I made this while Jennifer was getting her treatments for cancer.  She is doing so well now, I am so grateful.  Losing a year out of a young person's life, tied up with a vicious cancer and the treatments seems to last so long.  I am glad it's over and she's trying to get back on track with life.  

This quilt I made to enter in the Home quilt challenge at our Quilters Day Out event.  The words around it say "Finish what you start, a quilters dream at heart".  ''

I'm having a heck of a time loading my pictures on my blog.  I keep getting "Bad Request Error 400".  Does anyone else get that message?
