Classic Quilts are Great Housewarming Gifts

Spring is the season of renewal--baby showers, weddings, and housewarming parties are just a few of the events you'll surely encounter this season. A handmade quilt is a great gift for a housewarming party--a quilt quickly makes a house feel more like a home. Diamond Twist is a great classic quilting pattern to make for new homeowners to help bright a room they haven't completely decorated yet. Another great gift to brighten a room is a bouquet of flowers, but flowers won't last forever--why not make a Dimensional Flowers quilt instead?
