I just can't get myself to work on anything remotely traditional these days. I think it's a real longing for the energy of spring and summer. We've had some rain lately, so the leaves are finally on the birch trees outside my sewing room window, but not yet on the linden trees outside the kitchen. I really should be working on my cousin's medallion quilt (I already missed their first wedding anniversary), but instead I'm working on a baby quilt potentially for their firstborn - due in July. Possibly, it will end up with another baby - there are a lot of babies on the list these days!
I was inspired by this quilt on Sarah's blog a few months ago. (Seems the top was a gift from Susan.) I wasn't happy with my first attempt (top), but am much happier with the second (bottom). I'll make 12 10-inch blocks in all.
I also wanted to make some room in my freezer this weekend, so I got out the last of last year's rhubarb and made a batch of Moominmamma's Ginger Rhubarb Jam from this great Estonian food blog. Nice and easy and it turned out quite well!
