Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

Today is reveal day over at Tangled Textiles!  Lisa set the challenge for us back in March.  I thought about this one for awhile, but living on the wet west coast of Canada, we're pretty much surrounded by green year round!  Being spring, inspiration and fresh greens abound.  I think green and I think ferns.
I started with these

cut some squares, played with some layouts
did a little applique

and then the fun stuff for me - some thread painting and free motion quilting!

and here's my interpretation of the theme
Spring Green
I'm really happy with how this turned out.  Don't forget to go check out the other Tanglers

Happy quilting!

This is a beautiful quilt. I am Poppyprint's SIL and she shared the link. I sport a fern tattoo and my middle name is Fern. One day I hope to have a Fern quilt.
