Springing Forth

Marjorie M. decided to make her mom Spring Sprouts, a pattern with pre-cut Silhouettes by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.  It looked great.  Only dilemma was that Mom wanted a bed quilt.  (I know some of you are chuckling – been there, haven’t you!)

So Marjorie added matching four-patches around it.  But it still wasn’t large enough.  So she bit the bullet and added borders from Spring Bouquet, another pattern by Edyta.  Finally, she got it to the necessary 90″ x 100″.  And will it ever look good on her mom’s bed:

Thanks for bringing it in and sharing it with us Marjorie!

“Vintage eyes require a little extra help every now and then – especially in cases of reverse stitching. I LOVE the magnifying seam ripper with the built-in LED light to assist you even more in your stitch-reversal endeavors.  Not only does it magnify your stitches for removal, but it also adds extra light to help see.”

“My favorite item for the holiday season has to be the Grinch Advent Calendar.  I am a HUGE Grinch fan!  “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” has been my favorite Christmas program, which I have watched every year since I was a kid.  And now my kids are watching it as well.  So it was a given that I should make the store sample, and will be making one for each of my kids.  The Grinch is for kids of ALL ages!”
