No. 5 of my Finish Along List for Q1 is finished!
After a week of sunshine we went out this Sunday to photograph my rainbow “All the Diagonals” version. With spring finally around the corner and things starting to bloom, I was hoping for cherry tree blossoms. Well, we found one cherry that was not in a front yard ;)
The apple trees unfortunately are not in flower yet, but maybe I have another quilt done by then?
We went into the “Altes Land”, an area of reclaimed marshland straddling parts of Lower Saxony and Hamburg. The region is situated downstream from Hamburg on the southwestern riverside of the Elbe. It is the biggest contiguous fruit-producing region in North Europe – extending over 143 sq km (55 sq mi). About 90% of the trees are apple with cherry, pear and plums mixed in.
It was fun to hunt for fruit orchard related photo backgrounds. A perfect find was the big wooden fruit box. A tiny bit bigger than the normal one you see at the farmers market ;)
Because of the bright sunlight it was hard to get “true colors” in the photographs. I think the following pictures shows the colors, including the details of the light grey with neon yellow background print as well as the quilting very nicely.
I am very happy to have another finish in the books for this quarter – because if you have been following me on Instagram, I am starting projects left, right and center at the moment. It felt very good to cross one off the todo list for a change ;)

I have decided to extend the donation period. Till the End of March 50% of all pattern sales will be donated to Unicef in support of Ukrainian refugees. I’ll let you know how much we managed to donate. Thank you in advance for your support!
So far this quarter …
