~ Spring Blossoms Table Runner FREE Tutorial ~ from Podunk Pretties



Today I have a sweet little project to share.  Spring Blossoms Table runner was inspired by the spring flowers that are lacking from my yard.  Since the flowers are slow to bloom outside I'm making my own flower garden inside.  The flower block is a variation of my Back Porch Blooms quilt series found on the right sidebar of my blog.


This is a scrappy table runner.  I used several different fabrics from several different lines of fabric and manufacturers.


Not only is the Blossom block a variation of the Back Porch Blooms, I also change up the leaves ...

~ Small Project Progress ~ from Podunk Pretties

Slowly but surely my new Spring Blossoms project is coming together.  Thank goodness this is a small project because at this rate it would take months to make a full sized quilt.  Everyday is started with the intentions of sewing all day.  At least I have good intention, right?


 Khaleesi is the main reason for the lack of sewing time.  Everyday, twice a day,  we go out for walks and training.  Everything is new to her so she must sniff and inspect every square inch of the property.  Each day is new adventure with her, Mr. Podunk calls her the ...

Spring is finally here and I'm loving every single minute of this glorious season.  The crisp cool mornings on the back porch with a cup of coffee....pure HEAVEN!  My flower gardens however are lacking the earlier bloomers and the ones I do have are taking their own sweet time.  A simple fix is to make my own little spring garden party indoors.  Some of you may recognize this block from my Back Porch Blooms free pattern.  It's basically the same flower head block with a extra little punch of color by adding the pink squares to the ...
