Spring fever quilting!

Like Lisa, I have spring fever. Bad. I know global warming is terrible. And I know Mother Nature probably has an April snowstorm up her sleeve. But all the sunshine and warm temperatures in my part of Canada is making me think that maybe, just maybe, we'll have a gorgeous, extended spring. And to what does my crafty mind turn amid all this heady sunshine? Quilting, of course! I've been saving up this pile of black-and-white prints and acid-toned brights to make something high-contrast. And, last week, when spring came on full force, I dove in and started cutting squares and rectangles for my Bento Box Quilt. Turns out you need A LOT of fabric to make a quilt that's in between queen and king size. I think my pile might not yield as many pieces as I need. But if that means a trip out into the glorious weather to buy more fabric, no problem. How better to celebrate spring and the annual burst of creativity it brings? Do you have spring fever? What's it inspiring you to make? Share a photo with your comment below – just click on the "+ Image" button at the bottom left corner of the comment box to upload a picture.
