Springtime Blooms

I participated in a spring themed small quilt swap.  This is the small quilt I made for Deb A.  I chose a pattern from Primitive Quilts and Projects called "Springtime Blooms".  It was designed by Laral Arestad and was in the Spring 2013 issue.


The size was to be between 12 and 18 inches.  This one is about 13 inches square.  A combination of wool and cotton and hand quilted.  I enjoyed making it and found it hard to part with.
