Happy Easter!



May you all have a beautiful and blessed Easter Sunday! 

And never, ever take a freshly baked cake from scratch (a very yummy Spiced Applesauce Bundt Cake) one day, then cover it with its own special glass domed lid to keep it fresh (and the ants out) over night in advance!

It turned the dome into a humid little glass greenhouse and cracked the icing and melted my jelly beans! Beautifil rainbow dribbles everywhere but wizened pathetic looking jelly beans were literally falling off my cake!

What to do but eat every jelly bean with plans to reglaze and redecorate early tomorrow before celebrations and final cooking of ham and cheesy scalloped potatoes with all the trimmings.

Thirteen guests are expected 6 regular sized humans, 3 half pint sized ones from the todder department, and two grand dogs, 1 medium and 1 huge with feet and noses and tongues and sweet personalities to match!

It will be great fun and many more jelly beans and cake will be eaten!

Happy Easter Blessings  (and Passover)
to all!

Happy Spring, Blessed Easter + Passover Ideas and Tutorials


















It's so much fun to make new Spring or Easter quilts for new babies or children transitioning into new, larger beds.

But I also make and give adult bibs, prayer flags, Alzheimer's Fidget or Sensory and Tactile Quilts as well as bags, pillowcases etc.

I love them all and this blog us filled to the brim with ideas, inspiration as well as dozens and dozens of my tutorials and thousands and thousands and thousands of other creative and talented quilters, sewists, and crafts people.

















Gifts can be created from fun fabrics for all ages and stages and interests of the people you love!










Easter Blessings to all who receive our gifts of hands and heart. May you be filled with grace, joy, and peace.













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 like bright, calm, or sweet pastels...they welcome in Spring.








And whether you make an Easter quilt, or Easter basket or bag, pillowcases, or my current favorites...garlands, banners, and prayer flags, it's all lovely to make and to give to others!

My links are up at the too in a full view of this blog or over to the right in my link lists and my last 7 days most popular blog posts images and link ups.

But you can also find them listed here:

















Here's a fun list of photo ideas from some of my own projects files, and from so many other "Easter/Passover/ and Celebrate Spring!"pattern links..not just for quilts, and quilt blocks but a few super cute Easter crafts, too

Any spring colors, any styles in so many different crafts to choose from!  And do come back as these are updated all of the time. Just click on my my master link list up at the top border, or over on the side gadgets to the right!





This includes ideas for all 
And speaking of bunnies, check out some really cute ones along with carrots, chickens, and cats and other fun Spring and Easter ideas. Plus, I've included some lovely Passover ideas for and from my Jewish readers and bloggers.

EXTRA TREAT:


Yellow Clover Vintage Quilt Block: Instructions
Vintage Pattern Directions..no longer available  



**Yellow Clover a block design first published by Nancy Cabot for the Chicago Tribune.

According to Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, Yellow Clover is one of hundreds of Cabot patterns sold by mail order during the 1930s.


YELLOW CLOVER debuted in the Nancy Cabot quilt column in the Chicago Tribune on March 19, 1936. Cabot's notes state the following: 

"Yellow, green and white form one of the most popular of present day quilt color combinations. YELLOW CLOVER is one of the newer pieced blocks which allow the quilt maker to use these colors in a most appropriate pattern.

It is a pattern which is not difficult to piece, and only 36 blocks are required for an entire coverlet. They are set together six blocks across and 6 blocks deep and surrounded by a five inch border of white material and bound with leaf green bias binding a half inch in width."

The pattern is included in most compendiums, see p.207-5 in Jinny Beyer's QUILTER'S ALBUM OF PATCHWORK PATTERNS, for example, or p.212 in Maggie Malone's 5,500 QUILT BLOCK DESIGNS, or #2459 if you're using Barbara Brackman's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PIECED QUILT PATTERNS.
