Saw these two sewing ideas in my newest weekly e-letter from Kaye Wood that I just had to share with my crafty readers. Kaye, who is also the host of a quilting TV show for public television, is the queen of all the quilting queens and I have been one of her most enthusiastic fans for years.
So, if you are looking for something cheerful to make for spring or Easter, if you absolutely adore bunnies -- I know I do as I had a real live one as a pet when I was a little girl -- or even if you just love to quilt, here are two brand new patterns for some very pretty, but luckily easy, sewing projects you can make. Depending on the pattern you choose, these would make beautiful gifts to give whether as a get-well gift for someone in the hospital, a wall hanging for a child's room or as a decorative accent for your home. Whoever you are making it for will certainly get into the spirit of spring which starts officially later in March.
Once Upon a Bunny Hill, $9, is a new, very spring-like pattern. Best of all it only requires beginning sewing and quilting skills. See photo, left
HipHop Quilt, $9, is another new bright pattern that will get you out of the winter doldrums. This is a project that advanced beginners can take on. This one is my favorite of the two, not because it is a little more challenging, but because I absolutely adore its design and the choice of fabrics used. See photo, right
