To Spring

Spring is here, and it's time to celebrate simple pleasures — flowers, butterflies, and blue skies.  This quilt features spring motifs with an emphasis on primary colors and a green border.  Its classic blocks bring to mind the joys of springtime, Easter, and quilting.

To Spring by Debbie Corbett, 33" x 45", quilted by Mike Corbett

Winner of the Second Place award for Mixed Media quilts, Debbie explains, "This is a cheery quilt taking us into springtime. We utilized mixed media with applique and embroidery. There are many different quilting pattern, honey bees, grass, and those first spring flowers." 

(The pattern is "Changing Seasons-Springtime" by The Stitch Connection). 

But wait, there's more ! Debbie's creation also includes an adorable Easter bunny with a carrot, bright tulips tied with ribbon, a kite with a ribbon tail, a butterfly out in the spring breeze, and a darling cottage with a heart above the doorstep. Sunny yellow sashing and a perky half-square triangle border help complete this happy look.  We wish you a wonderful spring season, full of new awakenings, a sense of re-birth, and the hope for eternal renewal.
