If there’s one thing we can all agree on at this time of year, it’s that spring is in the air! This winter has been particularly crazy with record snow falls and freezing temperatures.
What could say spring better than some bright and cheerful flower quilts?
We don’t even have to wait for the spring thaw to enjoy these flower quilts. Just a needle, thread and fabric can have us enjoying spring flowers even if mother nature hasn’t decided to give us any just yet!
