Ring in the season: 8 gorgeous spring quilts to make (and more)

From Here Comes SpringRaise your hand if you’re ready for spring to arrive! (We’re guessing that’s everyone?)

Let’s see, March 20 is the first day of spring. That means 25 more sleeps until it’s officially spring. Sigh.

But wait . . . we know a wonderful way to send winter packing—by making a springtime project! We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the season on the way, when the sun will be shining, the birds will be singing, and the flowers will start poking their colorful heads out of the soil. Oooh, we can’t wait!

You could make a little pillow to summon the flowers:
