EBMC March Finale

It really feels like spring today.  Even though there are still assorted piles of snow about -- even on the south side of the house -- my tulips are up a good 3", the trees are in bud...and I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a robin!

My piece for the "Line" theme in the EBMC is finished and faced...and I have to admit, I like it!  Drawing from traditional 9-patch piecing, it appeals to my sense of order.  I used my walking foot to quilt it...and added the applique patches based on the 'deconstruction' of the original inspiration.  The low-contrast, soft colours make me smile.  One of my Gentle Readers described it as 'peaceful' and I have to agree.  Ahhhhhh.....

Linking up to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday...and going for a jog in the sunshine.  :-)
Have a great weekend!

I like this piece very much. It is calm and peaceful and those pink and purple patches give it some nice movement.
