SEW Ready for Spring!

Today is going to be another beautiful Spring day. 

I wanted to share with you some of the Spring quilts and pillows I’ve made over the years.

This first one I just finished last year.  It’s called ‘Chocolate Bunnies’.

I love the scallops and those bunnies almost look good enough to eat.  Really, my needle turn applique is not wonderful.  This is my first attempt at needle turn. The entire quilt has so many fun bunnies.

This quilt has bunnies all dolled up in fancy bow ties.  I entered this in a quilt show 4 or 5 years ago and it won 1st place in it’s division.  That was a real shocker!  Didn’t even know it was a contest, just thought it was a show. Hee-hee!

I love the piquet's and buttons on this Spring topper.

Fun and easy quilt with raw edged flowers.

It’s hard to tell with it draped, but this quilt has bird fabric on some of the blocks.  My pink chenille pillow I made from a recycled pillow sham sits atop.

Do you think I love Spring?  I have so many that I have to stack a few in my entry cabinet.

These pillows are old, but I never tire of them.  Do you think it’s because they only come out for one month out of the year? lol!

I’ll leave you with a few picks of the folded quilts opened up.

Do you have a favorite?  I do!  Well, maybe two.

As you can see Spring is hanging all around my house.  We are suppose to get a big drop in temps and rain for the weekend.  That’s o.k. the flowers and grass could use a drink.

I’ll just stay inside and enjoy a bit of Spring.

Hugs,

Jann

I love all your spring inspiration! Your quilts are lovely. My favorite is the last one that is folded out. Love the little blocks.

All of your quilts are wonderful! I especially like Chocolate Bunnies. Needle-turn appliqué is a real art. I did one project using that method and I said "never again"!

Thanks for sharing these treasures.
