Want to enjoy a garden filled with bright, cheery Spring blooms without getting dirt under your fingernails? Here is a solution… Appliqué it!

Beginning Appliqué class: "Fantasy Garden"
This whimsical little quilt is a beginner level class project for my Beginning Appliqué class. I'll be teaching this class—both hand and machine methods—this coming Monday, April 7 at Pins and Needles Quilt ShopWon't you come out and join me in the garden?

Because if you don't have this in your yard…
Quince and forsythia blooms.
or these...
Daffodils and hyacinths. 
you can create and grow these lovelies! And they will bloom all year 'round… (I promise!)
