Spring Quilts

My friend Val, from Val's Quilting Studio, hosts a Tuesday Archives linky party.  The theme for today is Bunnies and Baskets.  I just so happen to have a quilt of both.  A bunny with a basket full of carrots!  As this is a pre-blogging quilt I only mentioned it once, here. 

This quilt was pieced by my sister-in-law JoAnn, but quilted and finished by me in 2013.  Right now it is hanging in my basement on this quilt rack my awesome husband made for me. 

Notice the silver knob sticking out on the left.  He added that because when it was just a plain rod my boys kept bumping the quilt and it would fall down with the rod.  Now I just unscrew the knob and put the quilt on.  The rod cannot fall down and my boys are safer.  :o)

While I was at it, I thought it would be fun to show you all the other spring quilts throughout my house.  I love how they brighten and bring cheer in my house. 

This is what my kitchen looks like: 

It has my Irish Rose quilt on the wall with a Diamond Jelly Roll table runner on the table. 

Above my pantry is this turning twenty quilt draped over a quilting hoop stand. 

I have a pineapple table topper on my piano in the living room...

And this jelly roll race quilt on the sofa next to it. 

By my front door is another spring quilt which I designed to look like some Thimbleberries Coverstory Quilts.  I have one quilt for every month that hangs on this quilt rack my husband designed specifically for these quilts.  I mentioned the Thimbleberries quilts here and my original quilts here

Then downstairs, I have my Springtime Kisses quilt draped over my sofa.  This is the quilt from my header. 

Near the sofa is this cabinet which holds my pretty pastel quilts.  My boys seem to ignore them.  ;)

On the computer desk right next to the cabinet is a spring table runner. 

Around the corner by my sewing and laundry rooms is this Compass Rose quilt. 

Yes, that is my breaker box hiding behind the quilt.  Someday I will make a quilt specifically for this spot to completely cover it.  I am thinking a Dresden plate flower. 

I think that is all the spring quilts in my house, but I wanted to include this picture I took only a half hour ago.  It really shows what spring is to me.  Flowers on the trees and snow on the mountains.  It is the quilt I finished last month called April Showers bring May Flowers

I hope you are all enjoying whatever weather you have.  I really do love spring.  :D


P.S.  You can't have too many quilts throughout your house, right? 


  1. You did a great job decorating with your pretty quilts. I'm sure they make home feel warm and welcoming. I'm currently plotting to do away with something (not sure what yet) to make room for a quilt ladder...

  2. Oh that was so fun seeing your quilts spread throughout your house!! Thank you for taking the time to share :-) And your last pic-what a beautiful scene!

  3. Thanks for showing so many beautiful quilted items! The hutch full of quilts and the striped table runner are my favorites!

  4. You always have so much to share! I especially love the turning twenty and the design of the monthly quilt rack is wonderful! I have had my eye out for a quilt cabinet. I know what I want, just haven't found it quite yet :)

  5. You're right, you can't have too many quilts. Thank you for sharing photos of your home. It's as I would have expected, cozy, comfortable and inviting. Your husband's woodwork is beautiful and your quilts are gorgeous.
