Now that Spring has finally arrived, most of us want to spend some time in our gardens. However, we do not want to stop quilting. So how do we do it all?
I think we do it the easy way. We purchase plants at the nursery rather than starting our gardens from seeds and get new hanging baskets rather than trying to do them ouselves. (At least that is how I simplify my gardening and insure it has a better chance of living).
Quilting is no different. We can simplify. We have found several easy breezy patterns that take only one yard of five different fabrics each. We then put together numerous combinations of colors to make it even easier to do.
These quilts take very little time and effort yet yield a great quilt. This is a good way to knock out some of those graduation quilts, maybe one for Mother's Day. They truly are fast and fun. I made one in an evening. The colors we selected are also indicative of a garden in full bloom.
They will be like potato chips, you cannot have only one.
