Coloring Easter eggs?

Remember the sneak peek photo in my last entry? I used the various fabrics in purple, yellow, green, pink and blue to make fabric Easter eggs.


On April 1st, Letty had an April Fool's Day surprise hidden on her werbsite. It was the pattern for these eggs. I love the old fashioned look to them with the stitched seams. I think it spoke to my love of 'crazy quilting'.


Placed with a simple twig wreath in my creamware dish and I have a sweet new Easter decoration. I just love it and want to thank Letty for sharing this pattern.

I also want to thank you all for your comments about my charm quilt. I enjoy linking history to the quilts I make and try to use a great deal of symbolism in them. I am so delighted that you too enjoy hearing these precious stories from the past too. And thank you for the sweet anniversary wishes too...

Note ~ Please be sure to email me photos of your Primitive Pillow ornaments as the latest ornament is coming up next week along with the drawing for the giveaway.

Heidi, did you know that you are an enabler?! I clicked over to Letty's(also my Mom's name)blog and promptly added it to my google reader list. I am making a granny square prayer shawl and was drooling over her squares, not to mention her quilting! I had to send my sister the link! I guess that makes me an enabler too!

These eggs are so cute, made with fabrics that perfectly add to their old-fashioned look. And how you display them is pure delight.

These look lovely eggs. I thought to make some last year, then thought again thinking they wouldn't turn out as I imagined, but these look great. I must take a look at how to make them.

Oh Heidi,
I love your fabric Easter eggs! I would never have guessed that that was the project planned for the pretty co ordinating fabric you showed us :>)
What a great Easter decoration.
Warm hugs Angela

I love your eggs and went to the weblink for them. Your right about sewing versus quilting (much more fun). I still haven't finished one Bunny Hill block but plan to this weekend (I hope). When I visit the Washington State this summer I hope to post photos of the Lewis & Clark exhibit.
