Longing for summer

A couple of days ago I showed you the start of my journal quilt for this month. It started as one of the samples I made for Pamela Allen's online class. I had to change the size a bit as the CQGB uses 7"x10" for the journal quilts of this year
For this journal quilt I used my own hand dyed fabrics, as technique my favorite raw edge applique. On this picture you can see a detail:
I am so fed up with this winter and all the snow that it brought us, that I called it: 'Longing for summer'.

Hi Wil! This is so lovely, bright and cheerful and it makes me want to smile! I know just how you feel about the snow, we had another 4 inches over the weekend - wish it would be gone now :-)

Thanks for the last comment you left on my Blog, much appreciated...Luv AJ

Love it. The stitching is truly beautiful.

I am so over summer. I am longing for winter. (It's a Southern Hemisphere thing!) So, I understand just where you are coming from with this journal quilt!

It snowed here most of the day, your flower piece reminds that spring will be sometime.
