Spring is my favorite season. The winter blues are driven away, the trees begin to bud, spring babies are born and the earth begins to turn green again!

Hear me talk about my row and other projects I’m working on my video blog, Talk to Me Tuesday!
Visit the TTMT Community.

My idea was to celebrate my favorite season with baby chicks, fresh out of their eggs, pecking around the grass and flowers for something good to eat.

EQ7 Seasons Row Along: Spring Row by Jennifer Ofenstein Every pattern in my row is a 6″ (6 1/2″ unfinished) paper pieced block. Follow the instructions in the pattern to make this row, or mix and match to make your own fun row or other quilty project!

I’m absolutely loving the beautiful tonal white background fabric from Northcott! Anyone that visits regularly knows that I’m a bit of a Northcott junkie with Stonehenge being one of my all time favorite fabrics!

The entire row is paper pieced with optional embroidery or paint for the chicks’ eyes. I drew mine on using Tulip Fabric Markers. EQ7 Seasons Row Along: Spring Row by Jennifer Ofenstein

Small pieces freak you out? Try chain piecing them!

    Hi Jennifer!! I love your spring row the chicks are just so cute and I can think of many ways of using your blocks for other projects :0) My fingers are crossed because i love your paperpiecing vintage quilt :0)

  2. krislovesfabric

    Thanks for a cute row, to me…Fall is chick season, we get ours in the Fall so that we never have to worry about losing any to the cold that sometimes happens in the Spring. We have 15 of them right now that are about 2 weeks old.

  3. Heather H

    Hi Jennifer- I think my favorite season is spring- once everything starts blossoming. It’s beautiful here in Indiana! Thanks for the cute pattern and the give-a-way!

  4. Lorna McMahon

    Jennifer, your little chicks are just so cute. And that egg!!! Such a fun row. How clever of you to come up with a little quilt layout for your blocks! Thanks so much for sharing the pattern!

  5. Darlene Poirier

    Hi Jennifer, my favorite season is winter, I love decorating for the various holidays, especially Christmas

  6. Kathleen

    Summer is my favorite season, and it is all too short! I absolutely love your Spring row, especially how you used it to make a little quilt. Simply adorable, and I do love paper piecing. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  7. Nicki

    Having lived in the deep south most of my life I never really experienced FALL. Now I live in SW Missouri and it’s my absolute favorite season!

  8. Janie

    Fall is my favorite season. Love your row and the quilt blocks using your pattern. Thank you for the free designs, and the tutorials.

  9. Lori Smanski

    these little chicks are so adorable. thank you for the pattern. my favorite season is summer. all the flowers are blooming, the garden is coming to life, the warm weather, no bundling up.

  10. Marian Pena

    As you know, I love this row, I love the video, it’s amazing how busy you are and still find time for all the many things you do. Turning this into a quilt also is a fab idea, love that you thought to baste the row into place so it’s easily taken apart.. I have really enjoyed having you be part of this Row-Along with me Jennifer and I hope we see each other more often.

  11. Joan

    What and adorable row…perfect for Easter. As for me, it’s fall. Love the trees turning and the weather cooling off. Thanks for the wonderful row and tutorial

  12. seamstobesew

    As you know I love this row, I had no idea how busy you really are, but I am simply amazed that you do all that you do. I thought it was pretty clever to baste the row together so that you can take it apart later to put it in a quilt, that’s a very clever trick, thanks for sharing it in the video. Thank you sew much for participating with me in this Row Along. I hope we’ll have many more bright spots in the future.. You’ve really and truly been a gem.

  13. Cara Cansler

    I have a hard time choosing a season! Colorado is so beautiful all year around. If I *had* to choose, I’d say fall because I’m ready for the fall colors and the cool weather!

  14. Gwen

    Love the chicks row…thank you for another wonderful pattern. My favorite season is fall. Cool weather, football, apple picking, pumpkins…and of course Halloween.

    1. Susan

      I forgot to mention, that the download isn’t working. I either get an error message or it comes up with a blank page. I have tried several different times. Is there another way to get the pattern?

  15. Jewel

    My favorite season is definitely fall. I love the changing of colors, the crisp air and the perfect temperatures. I adore you’re spring row! It’s very cute.

  16. Capella Weems

    Seems like Fall Fever is running high this week. I am also a lover of Fall. I may live in the Sunshine State but I have to go home to the mountains of NC every October. Thanks for all the work you do and share with us.

  17. Susan

    Thank you for being on WordPress, in spite of some things that don’t work on it. I really much prefer it for me, and for blogs on which to comment. Your row is adorable! I’m not a fan of paper-piecing, but I might have to knuckle down and do these blocks. Either as a row or as a baby quilt, it’s adorable! I also appreciated how many times you put the link in the post. You made it really EASY to get the pattern!

  18. Edna Lindemann

    I like all seasons. they each have there own unique qualities. I love to paper piece. Your quilt is beautiful.

  19. Joan W

    Fall is my favorite season, although there are things I like about every season. Even though it is many years since I was in school, fall always seems like the time of new beginnings and new opportunities, plus I just love the cooler weather after a long Texas summer.

  20. Mackenzi

    Love your spring time row but winter is actually my favorite season! I love watching the snow fall and curling up under a pile of blankets with a cup of coffee and a good book. Winter gives you an excuse to stay in your warm flannel pajamas.

  21. Cindy Dahlgren

    I love summer. Our winters are very long and cold, so it’s great to be able to be outside. cdahlgren at live dot com

  22. Dolores

    The Vintage pattern would be perfect for using up the thirties fabrics that I have.
    Fall is my favourite season. I love the cooler temperatures. It makes for great walking weather, the leaves are gorgeous in all their changing colours and I absolutely love kicking the fallen leaves as I walk.

  23. duchick

    I share the same love of spring as you do! I love seeing the world around me come alive again after a very long cold, snowy winter. It is worth waiting for!

  24. Cheryl

    What cute little chicks! I think I like fall best. It is cooler, the weather is more stable, and it is leading up to the holidays. Thanks for the chance.

  25. Doris McCarty

    Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler temps, and the colors of fall foliage.

  26. Nancy Noah

    I love your baby chicks. My favorite season is Fall. Love the coolness and coming from a farming background, the harvest!
