Spring arrives on March 20—can we get a hooray? There’s no better time to create flower-filled quilts for decorating the inside of your home than while Mother Nature decorates the outside.
The only question is: what’s your favorite flower of the fabric variety? Choose from the sale books below and start “sewing” the seeds of a quilt to display every year—or heck, why not every day? Any season is a reason to display flowers!
