Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Spring

It's already springtime! How fast the year is passing, although it is still only March! Today is Palm Sunday, which means Easter is next Sunday. I'd better get busy with the Easter baskets and eggs. Easter seems to have sneaked up on me!

Tutorial: Tulip Time Wall Hanging

There are some things that remind me of spring no matter when I see them--tulips, colored eggs, baby ducks and bunnies, pastels. 

Bunny and Tulips. So cute please check out my website thanks.

With their sweet scent, pastel blooms and delicate, heart-shape leaves, lilacs are the perfect bouquet! Read more about growing lilacs:

To finish a couple of my own quilts that one might consider spring inspired.

These are in my "TRUNK, SHOW" board, which includes most of the quilts that I've made over the years. Of course, I gave away several before I had enough sense to take pictures. Those mostly went to grandchildren who have worn the quilts to a frazzle. Other were made for customers. They simply aren't documented and never will be. Do you have any undocumented quilts? Do you regret not taking pictures? Thanks for visiting.
Happy Quilting
