New Year Wishes for 2019

We often feature themes of Peace for the New Year, and we thought you might enjoy this lovely Peace Dove project by Portland, Oregon's Thread and Whisk. This year, we wish you inner peace - the peace that comes from an abiding sense of gratitude.

P.S.-  Check out our many NEW listings at QuiltInspire on eBay !  And for continuous free quilt patterns, please follow us on Twitter!

Peace Dove tutorial by Thread and Whisk

Thread and Whisk first posted this free project in December 2015.  They note, "The release of a flock at a wedding or a single dove carrying an olive branch to symbolize accord are signs of optimism and hope for the days ahead."

The dove's wings and tail are enhanced with free motion sewing machine stitching, and the eyes are created with embroidery thread and beads.

At the Thread and Whisk website you will find some really creative and thoughtful projects - like their Hand and Heart Warming Pillow  - and inspiring recipes like Salmon Tartines, which makes 12 delicious canapés for the New Year. Everything is beautifully photographed. We confess that we are in love with their stylish Grace Aprons, made of 100% linen. They make wonderful gifts, and will help you love your time in the kitchen !
