We've had so much snow in Calgary this winter that it's hard to believe that it is almost Easter. While I feel that I should still be stitching up snowmen, I think it's time to start thinking about flowers, bunnies and Easter eggs.
I've found 10 cute Easter designs that I think you will enjoy - and you still have time to create them. Here are a few of my favourites:
1. 10 Free Bunny Sewing Patterns
What would Easter be without bunnies? Diy-crush has curated lots of sweet bunny patterns for you to stitch up.
2. Hippity Hoppity Easter Mini Quilt
More bunnies, but this time in a pieced wall hanging. Hippity Hoppity Easter Mini Quilt is from Nadra of Ellis & Higgs. I think you could have lots of fun choosing fabrics for these bunnies and I might be tempted to add a fluffy tail to them too!
3. Easter Brights
If you're wondering where the Easter eggs are hiding, you'll find some of them in Easter Brights from Chatterbox Quilts.
4. Fancy Felt Egg
If you want to do a small felt project embellished with hand embroidery stitches, check out the Fancy Felt Egg from Wendi Gratz at Shiny Happy World.
5. EggIE Softies
If you have little ones in your house, they'll love the EggIE softies. Fun for them and a great way to use up your fabric scraps and trims.
6. Easter Bunny Pillow
Now that it's warming up (everywhere but Calgary!), you won't be needing your warm winter sweaters. Recycle your worn ones into this Easter Bunny pillow from Better Homes & Gardens.
7. Easter Table Runner
Here's a super cute table runner to make and it will be quilted up quickly as it uses the quilt as you go technique. Check out the Easter Table Runner from Patchwork Posse
8. Quilted Carrot Table Runner
I'm sure all these bunnies must be getting hungry! I've got just the solution: the Quilted Carrot Table Runner from Better Homes & Gardens.
9. Easter Treats
We've got the bunnies, the eggs, the carrots and even some flowers, but I'm missing the best part of Easter: chocolate! Easter Treats by Chatterbox Quilts includes a chocolate bunny between spring blooms.
10. Decorating Easter Eggs with Lori Kennedy
In case you need some help quilting some of these projects, Lori Kennedy of The Inbox Jaunt has a wonderful tutorial on Easter egg free motion quilting.
I'll be on Spring Break next week, so I'll be back with you in two weeks. I hope you have a wonderful (and warmer than Calgary) Easter.
