Valentine's Daffodils

Every year around Feb. 14 my daffodils bloom. They were a little early this year!

I know that many of you are still enjoying/enduring winter and and I thought you'd like to see this bit of spring.



Imagine air that smells like a cool spring day and that's what's happening in north Texas now. I know it's not going to last - cold, freezing weather always comes back to us before Easter - but today is very nice!

Daffodil..... that would make an interesting block and a nice spring quilt. How about it ladies for your next or next project?

Question.... If using a white background for a block, do you often use prints? I have a hard time chosing white prints because of the painted on white on white. Kona seems tougher to applique for me. Any suggestions?

I'm not crazy about the white on white prints. When I want a solid white I use P&B solids. Kona's white is also nice.

I hope this helps.

Oh, how beautiful! We have to wait a bit yet for ours. I have seen a FEW crocuses though, so there is hope, I think!
