I too love spring. I'm currently working on a couple of spring quilt projects (charity quilts for Linus) and some spring table runners.

My great niece Stevie and I are working on cheerful little quilt scrap pendants, hundreds of them, sewn to ribbon for Easter presents.

Indeed Spring is here with temps in the mid 80's by Friday!
My spring time project is a string quilt that I need to finish up before June 1st. Then I quilt for others so I'm pretty much busy with that too.

Spring is my favorite time of year. I've been working on my Schnibbles quilt which I just posted on my blog :-) Thanks so much for such a sweet giveaway.

Spring has sprung, as my allergies have erupted. I am working on a cat wall hanging in cat colors and many greens(the color of spring)

Projects I'm working on: blocks for April's blocklotto blogspot, catch up on a jelly roll sampler, and baby quilts....oh, and since there are a few bridal showers coming up, I want to make a few pillowcases with crocheted edging as gifts with blankets/sheets.

I remember your "Little Quilts" fondly. I started quilting in 1980 and was thrilled to find out I could make little quilts instead of always having to make a "bed" quilt.
Thanks.

This spring (in between frantically dashing around in the garden) I'm working on a nine-patch double quilt. I'm recycling an old Cath Kidston double sided single quilt cover (old roses one side and gingham the other) and some vintage white linen from my stash of tablecloths and pillowcases.

I have decided to finish a quilt that went through a flood in our basement a while back. It faded in some areas and I stuck it away. I have realized faded or not, it was an important time in our lives and the quilt should be finished and displayed. It helps because it is in cheerful yellows just in time for spring.

My spring project is a reproduction quilt that I am stitching in Grad Class with Mimi Dietrich. The inspiration quilt is a kit quilt and we are learning all the steps that go into reproducing an antique piece.

Hello,
I have enjoyed reading your blog; I sure will visit it again.
Here we still have winter - I have been skiing the last days - but you asked about a spring project. I will work on a quilt for one of my daughters + finish a few UFOs.
Your give away is great. BTW - I'm having a give away too.
Greetings from Oddbjørg in Norway

Love reading your 'Little Quilts" blog. This Spring, I am finishing up a project that is based on the pattern book called "Delightful Quilts in Bloom." Instead of doing 16" applique blocks--I'm doing the quilt in 6" blocks. I'm ready to add the embroidered details to the blooms--right in time for spring!

James said...

JOYOUS EASTER!
My Spring project is in pastels and whites and instead of 'flying geese' I'm using 'flying swallows', as the flying geese blocks are 1"-so cute!
Wonderful giveaway,thanks for sharing! Love,Linda

I am working on fabric carrots to fill with goodies for the grands and a birthday table runner for ll of our April birthdays.
Love your towel kits, so sweet!

Well, I just got back from 3 weeks in California, helping my daughter after the birth of her first baby (& our first grandchild!). I brought fabric & supplies to work on projects but didn't have as much time to work on them as I thought. Now it's time to finish that "baby" quilt, which will actually be more of a little girl quilt, as she's got plenty of little blankets for now. Hard to leave that baby but great to be back in my sewing room!

Cheryl said...

My spring project is to finish a quilt I started a couple of years ago for my son. It was a Silver Thimble Quilt Co. Pattern. Just need to finish it up.

Mary said...

I've been snowed under quilting things for other people. When I squeeze in the time I want to make a table runner with a jelly roll I bought recently. Clean, fresh colors - just right for spring.

I just finished Flower Power table topper by Sandy Gervais, and I am working on another table topper from Marie Peagler's blog.

Thanks for the give away!

My spring project is a jelly roll quilt along I found online. We get a new block every 2 weeks; and it is great fun! My first ever jelly roll project.
I have also begun a small quilt for a friend. There is a quilt in her wallpaper border, so I went out and found the best matching fabrics I could find and am going to duplicate that quilt for her in an actual wallhanging.

I am working on a Red, White, & Blue queen. I want it on my bed come June, so I need to hurry so I can get it off to the quilter!

I am making a pink table runner with pink baskets and pink and green flowers in baskets, and I am doing another one which is challenge at our guild and we had to pick bags up with paint colors in them and to our challenge around the colors. I got black and grey so I am doing bright flowers all in polka dots different colors appliqued on black background and sashing and borders of black and grey polka dots and binding in bright stripe. That should keep me busy to June. davidson.sandra0@gmail.com
