After the winter the northeast had, the thought of spring blooming around the corner is met with great joy and anticipation.

This little block on the left is a block from the 50 Little Paper-Pieced Blocks book. It is perfect for featuring any fabric you like in the center and then framing it with coordinating fabrics.

The tulips and little chicks seemed appropriate for spring.

Will the bright colors of spring inspire a new color combination for your next quilt? It is always a joy to see the burst of colors after the long cold winter.
