Kimberbell’s Spring Showers is breezy and beautiful, with rain boots and
mushrooms and so much more. Wool felt bumblebees buzz around the
dimensional beehive, while vinyl umbrellas are bright in the blustery weather.
Load the little red wagon for the garden, fill cork pots with felt flowers, and piece the log cabin blocks right in-the-hoop! From blossoms to butterflies, our Spring Showers quilt is a breath of fresh air for every
machine embroidery enthusiast
