Usually, by about February or March, we need a lift from our winter doldrums.  I’veWaiting-for-Spring searched high and low to find a happy spring project that will reflect that need. This table runner fits the bill with a wonderful view of a tree just beginning to show it’s springtime leaves, and a bird building a nest.  This 13″x37″ project it easily accomplished with fusible appliqué and pretty pastel colored fabrics.  Beginner’s welcome!

Bethany Reynolds has done it again! Yep!  More great stack-n- whack quilts!  Ribbon weave is REALLY beginner friendly! Following is a quote from her book “The traditional Rail Fence block gets a new look with the Stack-n-Whack technique.  Framing the main fabric with two different accent fabrics creates an interwoven effect.  For all the design drama, this is still a very simple quilt to piece.”  A quilt made from this pattern would make a very good gift for anyone on your list.  The sample quilt is made smaller than the pattern calls for, but you have lots of size options.

If you like making Stack and Whack quilts, well, this is even better! Use just one fabric, just one shape, and easy sewing to create the artistic quilt of your dreams. The fabric does the work for you. Once all the blocks are made, then you play with the color placement. Since this is a fluid design, there is no pre determined size of the finished quilt. Come and join the fun.   The color play is addictive!
