Little Hands

I've been working on this quilt for the last couple of weeks with my friend Rachelle.

It's a gift for her daughter's preschool teacher.  She thought some little hand prints on the wall for her would be sweet.

I think she's right.  They are SO sweet.

This is my favorite block.  Maybe it's the red.  But probably it's the little person behind the hand!

I am loving this little quilt so much!  

I'm going to be quilting this up today.  I'm planning to quilt-in-the-ditch in each seam on the hand print blocks, and then do my loopy quilting in the grey areas.

All super-pinned and ready to go!

And look what's been blooming in my front yard!  It's my Rose Tree of China bush.  It's my very favorite thing in our yard.  Three years ago it was just three little twigs.  Now it's humongous!  

This proves that Spring really is here in Idaho.  Finally!

I'm linking up here today:
