Celebrate Spring With These Festive Easter Quilt Patterns

You don't need another excuse to quilt, but Easter sure is a good one. With the holiday's iconic bunnies, eggs and springtime flowers, there are a ton of different must-make motifs to choose from.

1. Pretty Petals Table Runner

Nothing says "spring is here" quite like pastel petals. Bring this runner together with simple appliqué and easy-peasy piecing.

Practice the techniques you've learned in previous lessons by making an attractive spring-themed table runner. Margie guides you through the steps of arranging and fusing the appliqué, then demonstrates how to add a variety of decorative stitches. Finish by making a checkerboard border.

2. Spring Bunny Block

Warning: this block is so cute, it'll multiply like rabbits. Choose your favorite fabrics and it'll be oh-so-easy to stitch a bunny block you love.

Watch out — these bunnies multiply fast, and you may just find yourself with an entire quilt's worth of blocks after an afternoon of getting lost in your stitching. The best part: it only calls for two fat quarters (yay, precut fabric!) and a few fabric scraps.

3. Spring Frolic Quilt

The floral blocks on this quilt look like they came right out of a springtime meadow. And with simple pinwheel blocks and straight strips, it's totally beginner-friendly .

This pretty quilt block measures 12½" unfinished, so you can easily sew it into a pillow, frame it for your wall or join it into a larger quilt. And while the tulips are on-brand for the holiday, it's not too Easter-y, so you can display it all season.

8. Songbird in the Garden Quilt

Fact: this wall hanging is like a beautiful piece of fine art. Piece the simple square background before crafting the bluebird, grass and flowers that seem to pop right off the fabric.
