Today I have a sweet little project to share. Spring Blossoms Table runner was inspired by the spring flowers that are lacking from my yard. Since the flowers are slow to bloom outside I'm making my own flower garden inside. The flower block is a variation of my Back Porch Blooms quilt series found on the right sidebar of my blog.
This is a scrappy table runner. I used several different fabrics from several different lines of fabric and manufacturers.
Not only is the Blossom block a variation of the Back Porch Blooms, I also change up the leaves a little. Even with all the changes the blocks are still easy to make.
Awe....just look how cute it looks on the desk in my office.
So lets get to it! The cutting list will be listed above each diagram. All fabrics will be layered with right sides together before stitching. All seams are 1/4". Pressing directions are indicated with arrows on images.
The background, binding and backing is all white. The estimated yardage is 2 yds. It's estimated with overage for those little UH-OH's.
