Spring is here, no matter what the weather in your neck of the woods!
And if you can't get enough flowers in your life, why not stitch some?
Here's a very popular quilt design from my website in the American Quilt Collection, called FLOWER SAMPLER:
I stitched it many years ago with a Rainbow Gallery thread (Overture V95 - "Phoenix") because it had such lovely soft springtime colors -- peaches, pinks, and seafoam greens. It was very fun to pick out all the quilt blocks I could find that had a flower theme. And because there are so many different blocks, it's a fun quilt to pull out just a few of your favorites and stitch them as a small springtime ornament, like this:
I enjoyed stitching the scalloped border on this design, because I had always wanted a quilt with that type of border detail. Then I added an extra border with more flowers peeking up at the edges:
I've got this FLOWER SAMPLER piece currently hanging in my house this season, so I can enjoy all the flowers. I keep thinking I'd really love to stitch it again in different colors, especially since there are sooooo many more springy variegated threads to choose from... but alas, I have so many new projects underway, all I can really do is look at this old favorite and smile....
Hope it brings a springtime smile to your face as well!
