Preparing for Spring
Yesterday I worked on my Buggy Barn Spring Fling quilt. This is the first Buggy Barn quilt that I have ever made. I have admired the pattern for quite some time and I've actually had this quilt cut and ready to sew for about a year. It's nice to make progress on a project that nagged at me every time I walked into my sewing room. I'm still trying to decide whether or not to add a border.
I like the Thimbleberries Berry Patch fabrics that I used to make the blocks, but I don't like all of the wasted fabric from this type of pattern. I guess that's a trade-off for the simplicity of the design.
