March Finish

Here is my March finish- Celebrate the Day made with the Panache line. Very colourful but Tony says it is his most favorite ever, and good thing, too as it will be his cuddle quilt for TV watching. I had no quilt holder at home when I took this picture and obviously not a lot of floor space.


This is the fabric I used for the final border and also will use for binding since I had lots of it. It is my favorite of the line as it has all the colours in it. Such a pretty line but way out of my "normal" choices for fabric. I loved making this quilt partly because it was just so colourful and spring is on the way...
Tomorrow I have to plan what I will do for April, but since we won't get home until April 15th, I will just plan something that is manageable. We leave Tuesday, flying into Phoenix, and will just stay overnight, and leave for Mexico in the morning. We'll arrive in Puerto Penasco by 4pm we hope- before dark, and in time to make a nice dinner and watch the sun go down off our deck. Oh, and don't forget the margarita on the rocks! We are back in Phoenix on the 9th, and stay there until the 14th. Then, home...
I am taking my laptop and plan to post from our vacation - no quilting news, but hopefully pretty pictures.
Happy spring everyone, and I look forward to sending you pictures from Mexico.

I love Tony's quilt. I know what you mean about sewing with bright fabrics after the winter months. Have a safe trip. Be careful in Mexico. My daugher and her husband just returned today from their spring break vacation there and I was worried the whole time they were in Mexico. The news every night did not support Canadians travelling there too favourably ...till the 15th!
