With Spring comes Easter.  This super easy quilt as you go table runner can be made in one day, and small enough to tuck away until next year.  Add a few cute Easter inspired applique, and you have a project done that can be used during the holiday.

Use your fabric stash, scraps, or even a jelly roll {you would get more than one with all those strips!}.  The back can even be pieced if you’d like to further the fabric you already have.

Along with the easter, I have put together a quick Alphabet applique.  This is my go-to alphabet when I need something ‘said’.

Alphabets are great for using on quilts or other sewing projects.  They give them a personalize little touch- either with an initial or with a cute saying or word.
