11 Cute Spring Quilts

COTTONTAIL

Here’s a fun bunny quilt from the Garden Variety collection. Sweet rabbits and carrots are “fenced in” with pretty blue sashing and sawtooth stars. Gorgeous custom quilting by Natalia Bonner.

LITTLE COTTONTAIL

Perhaps you’d like to just make one bunny block and finish it into a wall hanging or pillow? There’s a Little Cottontail PDF pattern in the shop as well. It’s the same exact bunny block used in the Cottontail quilt but has finishing instructions for a pillow or wall hanging.

SPRING FLING

The beautiful thing about a flower quilt is that it can be enjoyed all year long. This colorful flower quilt is called Spring Fling and is made with Folktale fabric.

Spring Fling is made with a combination of fat eighths + fat quarters + half-yard cuts. It’s intended for intermediate skill level and uses a combination of easy corner triangles + and half-square triangles techniques to make the geometric floral shapes.

SUN SHOWER

Here comes the sun… sun-shaped quilt blocks, that is. Sun Shower can be made with fat eighths or fat quarters and is a quilt that looks a bit like a vintage tile floor. The colors of Folktale fabric are really what makes this a great spring quilt.

SOCIAL BUTTERFLY

One of my first quilt designs was Social Butterfly. This scrappy butterfly block is made with 18 fat quarters. Pick a variety of light and dark colors since you’ll be mixing and matching the colors around within each butterfly block.

SOCIAL BUTTERFLY MINI

Of course I had to make a miniature version of the Social Butterfly block. Meet Social Butterfly Mini–a miniature quilt finishes at 11 1/2″ x 11 1/2″.

BUTTERFLY PATCH

Inspired by my bestselling Social Butterfly pattern, Butterfly Patch is an enlarged version of that sweet butterfly shape filled with beginner-level blocks for a sampler-sort of feel. Butterfly Patch is made with a Layer Cake (42 precut squares 10″ x 10″). You can buy a variety of Layer Cakes online–or make your own what you already have in your stash.

I used Lollipop Garden fabric for this original version–as well as a second version I made with a grey background. To see the grey background version (+ instructions on how to add a scrappy patchwork border), check out my post here.

HOLLAND

No spring season would be complete without tulips. Holland is a tulip quilt that is a great intro to curved piecing if that is something you want to learn how to do. For this two-tone version, I used 1 yard of white fabric for the tulip top + 1 yard of white floral print for the tulip base. (You can use 10 fat quarters for a variety of tulip colors.) The two-tone version uses 1 3/4 yard of the green print. for the tulip stems. (You can use four assorted 1/2-yard cuts for a variety of tulip stems.)

COTTAGE BLOSSOMS

Yep. More flower quilts. This one is Cottage Blossoms. The Cottage Blossoms blocks can be made with 1 Layer Cake (42 precut squares 10″ x 10″) or 10 fat quarters. Check out the custom quilting by Natalia Bonner on this one. Unbelievable.

It certainly looks happy mocked up in my Lollipop Garden collection. (This is a layer cake plugged in.)

COTTAGE BLOSSOMS MINI

Are you seeing a trend here? (I like mini quilts.) Here’s a miniature version of the Cottage Blossoms block made into a mini quilt. You can really have a lot of fun fussycutting the shape in the center like I did with the taupe floral print.

BLOOMINGTON

Now this flower quilt feels a little less literal than the others, which can be nice if you are going for a more traditional looking flower quilt. Bloomington is made with a Jelly Roll (40 precut strips 2 1/2″ x 40″) + whatever sashing accent color you’d like.

One of the things I love most about this pattern is the scrappy, stripe-y border. The Jelly Roll used for the blocks yields enough leftovers to include with border.

    Folktale is one of my favorite fabric bundles. I’ve made three sets of placemats, a table runner, several mug rugs and a few of the Fat Quarter Shop Sewcialites sew along blocks. I’ll try my hand next at one of the spring quilts. I think the bunny rabbits are my favorite and a perfect gift for my new grandson.

    I really love them all, but butterflies are my thing, so any quilt with these beautiful bugs are going to be my favorite!

    I finally decided to make Sun Shower, it is such a striking design, but seeing the big butterfly quilt has got me thinking about ways to stash bust. I’m really liking the idea of blocks within a block. Your work is always inspiring.
