Easter Blessings AND Flower Power, Spring and Fun Quilt Ideas
Here is the Baby Chick from the book Out of the Box with Easy Blocks!
FLOWER POWER starts wotjhoochy piecing and lets it grow into a large flower garden of fun and color and whimsy....the skies the limit...we will be doing alot of these at John C.Campbell in May and the West Virginia Cedar Creek Retreat and my own retreat in Idaho June 2nd-7th.
The Flower Power quilt above is by Kathy Sandling-isn't she wonderful with color?
Lots of flowers all in one wonderful quilt!
Girls from Flower Power Workshops
Aren't these fun?
White makes a cool background too and added buttons and rick rack once it is done is awesome....
The quilt below is for Laurie Latta's Granddaughter-lovely flowers in a happy quilt...the alphabet instructions are in Out of the Box with Easy Blocks
Laurie Latta made the darling quilt below...all from Flower Power
Flower siwth prints and plaids are awesome...I did not write down whose flowers this is but I love it!
Joan from West Virginia...darling quilt! Shes coming back which makes me so happy!
This might be by Kathy Collins...I am not sure but great heart shapes for fun! These could be in a row as bleeding hearts too-or heart flowers
I saw this wonderful rainbow in Arizona and wanted to share it...like God had His finger making this that moment...so cool
And I have posted this photo in past Easter years but had to show it again. I went to Salzburg Germany and they had this egg shop with thousands of hollowed out decorated eggs...it was incredible. I bought too and they were shells by the time I got home....sigh
And for fun I thought I would end this with Carol Simpson's happy work. She did this darling cat quilt and used the cats from the Out of the Box with Easy Blocks CATS...so fun and so funky....
SORRY MN quilters I won't be visitng you this year in June...I think you are too traditional for me I am sorry to say. I do love it there and think I fit in when I come to visit.
I love this time of year and the wonderful colors that God provides us. Count your many blessing and be a blessing to someone else. This is the true secret of happiness.
