Spring Has Sprung?
I know – Thanksgiving is in 2 weeks – so why I am titling this entry Spring Has Sprung?
A little while back I made a little quilt with that title. Do you remember the little ditty….
Spring has sprung,
The grass has riz.
I wonder where the birdies is…?
So, naturally I had to make a “The Grass Has Riz” piece. I just finished the beading last week and got it done!

The center background is randomly pieced and the design elements are fused. The technique is very improvisational and FUN! I was first introduced to it a couple of years ago at a class taught by Deana Hartman. (http://chameleonquilts.com) One of the best classes I’ve taken.
I hurried through all the basic construction so that I
could get to the BEADING!
The writing on the quilt is done with a free motion

And here is………….
The Grass Has Riz!
The pieced green background part looks
vaguely like an egg, don’t you think?
I guess the idea of Spring was working
on me subliminally
I’m thinking that I should have done the writing in a more contrasting color. On the other hand, center stage belongs to the grass – and all the BEADS!!!!
I’m thinking that there are some birdies in my near quilting future……
