A pair of small quilts

Winter just doesn't want to leave Minnesota this year.  Snowstorms on Sunday and Thursday have left us with a winter wonderland instead of spring blossoms.  (Sigh)

There was an unexpected surprise this morning.  As I was taking a few pictures around the yard I realized that this old shed in the back has a wall that just begs to be a spot for photographing quilts.

Two finished small quilts this week: 

Temecula 25th Anniversary Quilt.  The free pattern can be found here.

and a little quilt from scraps that I'm calling Vintage Green and Grapes.  The jade green in the nine-patch blocks is pretty old.  I'm thinking late 1950's.  It was from my mother's stash - and only 36 inches wide as I recall.  This is about the last of it.  The alternate blocks are grape vine print from my BFF.   She passed them on to my stash when she moved to Arkansas and had to downsize.  Thanks Carrie!!

I'm holding out for Spring by refusing to put away the Easter decorations until all the snow is GONE!  At least it can look like Spring indoors.

Check out some other finishes this week:
Can I get a Whoop Whoop?
Finish it up Friday
