Days are longer, days and nights are warmer, spring flowers are disappearing, strawberries are about to turn red, peaches appear as small nubbins on the tree, the first spinach, lettuce and chard have been enjoyed. Spring is nearly over.The center applique square in this quilt was the last piece of applique that my sister completed before she passed away from cancer last fall. I felt it deserved a place of honor and remembrance. I surrounded the applique with a block called “Broken Stone” which was published by the Kansas City Star on January 4, 1950.
