A Great Project for Showing off a Variety of Skills!
The charm and exuberance of this happy little quilt are simply perfect for the season. It’s also a lovely project for showing off a variety of skills.
Piecing, applique and embroidery are accented with buttons, lace and bunting. The result is so sweet and charming.
The quilt was patterned after a Christmas version by the same designer. Working from the base pattern and the templates provided, you can easily alter the design as desired.
For example, if you don’t like hand work, a piece cut from a vintage appliqued linen could replace the darling embroidered chick. The “Happy Easter” greeting could be done by machine, although you may want to simplify the lettering. The appliqued pieces can be done with fusible applique by omitting the seam allowances.
In other words, play with the design and make it your own. Or, follow all the steps to replicate the quilt shown here.
The finished quilt, designed by Sarah from Pretty Fabrics & Trims, is about 9.5″ x 10.25″ without the bunting.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
