Easter comes later in April this year. With the long and snowy winter most of us had, we’re more than ready to see green grass, flowers blooming, and bunnies hopping through the yard. Welcome spring by using soft pastel or brightly colored fabrics to create cute, Easter-inspired appliqué projects.
Your favorite AccuQuilt fabric cutter makes quick work of cutting out the appliqué shapes. With most fabrics you can cut up to four layers with fusible, meaning you’ll get to the fun part, piecing and sewing, faster.
We’ve assembled five easy appliqué projects to help you celebrate spring and decorate your home for Easter. From table runners to home décor to quilts, there’s something here for every quilter to enjoy, whether beginner or seasoned veteran.
Make a Country-Fresh Quilted Table-scape
Set the table for farmhouse charm with this Birds and Blooms Table Runner Pattern for the Studio. Colorful flowers, tiny birds and a vase of blooms make this appliqué project one that can stay on your table all spring and summer long. Use the place mats to freshen up your indoor or outdoor dining table.
Blooming Flower Appliqués to Wake Up Any Table
Tulips are a sure sign that spring has sprung. With its stain glass and Art Deco-inspired flowers and wide border, this GO! Hello Spring Table Runner pattern welcomes spring in a bold way. We’ve used purple, yellow, and white for a more vibrant look, but you could choose pretty pastels if you prefer.
Peter Cottontail-Approved Quilted Decor
With its bunnies in mid-hop and blooms scaled large, this GO! Hopping Bunnies table runner is sure to delight. At 26-inches square, this versatile quilted décor piece can be used to decorate your dining buffet, as a seasonal wall hanging, or as part of your Easter table centerpiece.
Quilt Up Happy Easter Wishes
Make this GO! Happy Easter throw quilt and hang it on a wall or use it to decorate your Easter dinner table. It measures two feet square, which makes it adaptable to a variety of settings. We love the juxtaposition of its traditional diamond star centerpiece with the more whimsical lettering.
GO! Cute with This Spring Fabric Cutting Die
Spring for this GO! Spring Medley die to make any spring, Easter or baby project a little cuter. The die works with your AccuQuilt fabric cutter to make it easy to cut precise bunny, chick, basket and egg shapes. The appliqué possibilities are endless.
Once you’ve got your die, it’s a snap to make these spring-themed mug rugs. They’re a great project for beginner quilters and can be used for everything from decorating a table to protecting surfaces from coffee or wine drips, glass condensation, and heat from mugs or scented candles.
Show Off Your Sweet Easter Treats
We love to see quilters of all levels sharing their stories, tips, patterns and pictures. After all, sharing is the binding that keeps our quilting community pieced together.
