is nigh! There is still time to make up this quick “Christ Cross” Platter Pad for Easter dinner. So simple and a beautiful way to proclaim your faith! We need renewal, spring, flowers and lots of faith this time of year. The winter and Covid concerns have bogged us down and been depressing for many, but we can now see the light in so many ways. This pattern is on sale for just $1.50 until Easter, and I’ve selected some other Easter patterns to put on sale as well. To buy, click here.
Another Easter icon is the Easter basket:
I’ve made this same basket with fussy-cut flowers instead of eggs:
This “Charming Chapel” is, like the flower basket above, not only for Easter, but it does have a spring feel with the colorful stained glass, which is simply a printed fabric.
I have patterns for other crosses if you are ready for a larger project. Below is “Risen”cc2103 with a beautiful 3D flower. It uses a jelly roll for the lovely corals.
A great pattern for trying “watercolor piecing,” this is “Leading to Easter.” Change the drape to purple on Easter Sunday.
….and finally a “basket” for baby! It’s not really a basket, but it IS woven–yes, like those stretchy hot pads we used to make! Baby Basket-Weave Blanket
I wish you a Happy Easter, hoping the bunny hops into your house, and I hope these patterns inspire you to start some spring thinking! (no, I did NOT say CLEANING!!!)
