One day winter WILL end and spring WILL arrive! We’re trying to hurry it along by thinking about, and working on, spring patterns!
Soon the birds will be courting and building their nests. Spring Row Quilt pattern by Carolyn Beam of Colorado Quilts has 11 birdhouses, 28 flowers, and three birdhouse poles covered in ivy leaves and vines….a bird’s paradise!
Foundation piecing, applique, and traditional piecing are all used to create this beautiful spring quilt that measures 62″ x 80″ when finished.
Brush up on old technique skills or learn some new ones with Linda Zokan’s Ode To Spring sampler pattern. Paper foundation piecing, broderie perse, hand embroidery, and applique make this fun for experienced quilters and it’s great for beginners to sample new techniques. Birds, bees, bugs, and bunnies all dance around the flowers to remind us of spring. Finishing at 31″ x 35″, it’s the perfect size for a wall hanging to celebrate the season.
Remember Spring? A dozen butterflies pose amidst bright, cherry, spring fabric and entice us to look a little closer at their beautiful designs. This 52″ x 64″ pattern is available in either hand embroidery or machine embroidery. You could also use the patterns individually on tea towels or throw pillows.
Bright colors in log cabin blocks frame four large spring themed appliques, all bordered by smaller Pieces of Spring. This one finishes at 44″ square and would look great on a wall or tossed on a couch or easy chair.
Shake off the winter blues and bury yourself in some spring projects instead of snow!
