A Little Indoor Gardening...

I am still on some not so fun medication for my back-so I have had a week of feeling very unproductive! I cannot remember the last time I took this many naps! And it seems as though everything falls into 2 categories-too painful or too drowsy;). I was thankful for the fact that Matt had different things going on this weekend that the kids could be involved in. The last thing I want is for them to stay couped up with me. But this afternoon, I worked up enough motivation to finish binding 2 of the quilts I had shown earlier. And since I am a bit antsy about the fact that gardening season has begun and I have not been able to tackle much of that as of yet, some indoor gardening(quilting) was appreciated. Both of these baby quilts have beautiful vibrant floral patterns in them.

The majority of the fabrics used in these quilts were from reclaimed bed linens. I did cheat a bit and complimented some of these fabrics with some lovely modern quilting fabrics as well. I just couldn't resist how well the new and old blended.
