I love working with bright fabrics and I am a fan of Carol Doak’s designs. So why did this project languish for so long? The world may never know! Here it is in all it’s happy glory! And here is my “before” post https://ponderingitall.blog/2018/01/07/2018-resolutions-part-1
Second in my series of Carol Doak seasonal blocks, here is SPRING! Spring has been shy in the Midwest this year so it is nice to have a reminder of it on my wall.
