One of my projects last year was to recreate any one of my quilt pattern designs. My choice was "A Freshness of Spring".
This quilt was born in 2006. It was created in shades of blue for the background and daisies of white with yellow centers. Today I have remade it, creating a more scenic view using background shades of green, purple and blue.
