Free Easter, Spring, and Passover + Chickens! Quilt and Craft



It's so much fun creating colorful quilts, wall hangings, table toppers, Easter baskets, or creative children crafts to welcome in the hopes of Spring and the season or renewal, hope,  peace and freedom.

Making an 'Easter' quilt can be as simple as making some four patches.... and added some bits and pieces ...just from some scraps you might already have....in bunny, chick, or any pretty Easter fabric!

I used some scraps in Beatrix Potter prints, as shown above, and made this cute but easy, baby quilt and included a little soft fabric book for a quick gift! This little baby quilt is in flannel, and these where all the scraps I had in these colors..so no outside borders, and very simple style..but it is soft and special and still so cute! And best of all, the sweet little one who received it,




Whether you make an Easter quilt, or Easter basket or bag, pillowcases, or my current favorites...garlands, banners, and prayer flags...
