Flowers are Blooming, Spring as Sprung

My flowers are blooming all over the house.    YEAH!!   I love sitting out on my porch and just watching them.  With the spring rains, the dark green grass...everything looks so fresh and clean looking outside. It can really get the creative juices flowing.

I found some really cool fabric at a yard sale the other day.  Normally I will only buy from a quilt shop but for some reason this just caught my eye.


When I got home I drew this:



Oh, I was going to have a little fun with this print.  First I cut my white background to the size that I wanted.  Then cut out my green grass and added it to the bottom with steam a seam.  Then sewed on my bottom boarder.




 Next I added the remaining three boarders on.  Then I added the flowers and the bumble bee.  Oh, I thought he was cute, reminded me of the one with the Honey Cheerios commercial. 




I machine appliqued them on with Monofilament Thread so not to be seen.  then I quilted my little hanging.  Oh, check out my bee now that I painted his wings and face on:



OK, here is the finished project.  This didn't take me long at all today and I had a lot of fun.....
