Hello Everyone,

I hope some of you remember this post about my quilt in progress, A Touch of Spring. I had so much fun putting this one together, but had hit a road block. I just got tired of working on the same thing. That must happen to everyone.

Well, recently I was renewed! I decided to finish piecing the rows together to complete the quilt top. Yes, I said complete and I love it!! Here are the photos...



The lower right corner. See how it transitions from raspberry to chocolate?



The upper left corner, again the transition of color.


The lower left corner, just all raspberry.


The upper right corner, just pure yummy chocolate.


The center portion of the quilt. I just loved piecing these together. If you haven't tried paper piecing you really ought to give it a go. This one is a Judy Niemeyer pattern called A Touch of Spring.


But I think I am going to call this one Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Mainly because this is probably my most favorite candy. Now one of my favorite quilts!!


Even though this was a time consuming quilt, I just love the results and definitely would not hesitate to make another Judy Niemeyer pattern. I also love working with batiks for paper piecing. They really hold a press well and don't shift as much as normal commercial cotton. Now just to get it on my long arm and get it quilted.

Next time, I will show you my quilted and bound Kaffe quilt. I just love it. But in the meantime go HERE for some more quilty inspiration. New customer quilts fresh off the long arm, including Vicki's Candy Button Quilt from Moda Bake Shop!

Until Next Time...
