Springtime Quilt…


This is one quilt in a series of four I am offering. This is the Springtime Quilt that we made back in April. I am working on the Summertime Quilt and will post it sometime next week. In August I will post the Autumn Quilt and in October the Winter Quilt. This is a 8″ x 10″ frame I found but, any size frame can be used for this project with the appropriate size images. You can really do anything you want.  To layout the design I worked with tracing paper over a SU grid sheet. I then divided up the area with images I thought  I wanted to use. I traced them and then I saw what images fit in the smaller areas which is in keeping with the season I am working on. I chose spring color, layered each image and added embellishments.
