I am excited to share my new quilt pattern today, Quilty Garden! You can find it in my shop here. Amanda gave us the theme of flowers to share with her Flora and Fawn fabric line from Riley Blake. I added these fun Riley Blake basics to my quilt. They arrived on a perfectly snowy day in March. Boo!
As I was piecing these sweet 6 inch blocks, I came across a fun new notion–fork pins! These are a game changer! I am always unpicking my blocks and these pins helped my blocks line up! If you haven’t tried these, you should!We go to Washington DC every year to see the cherry blossoms. I thought this Quilty Garden would look so cute with the cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms fall off in the wind. There are beautiful pink petals everywhere. I think this Quilty Garden fits right in! These 6 inch blocks were a breeze to piece. I have a fun way to piece flying geese included in my pattern. You only need 5 different 10 inch squares for the flowers. For the background, you need 3 fat eighths or you can use scraps like me! That fussy cut deer is my favorite! Isn’t it so sweet?!?
This Quilty Garden was such a fun Spring project. You can find the pattern in my shop here!
We spent the day at Mt. Vernon, George Washington’s home. I had to get a few pics with the quilt there. My baby had fallen asleep and needed to try it out!
I hope you enjoy this pattern! How does you quilty garden grow?
