How Does Your Quilty Garden Grow?

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!IMG_2583

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!IMG_3038We go to Washington DC every year to see the cherry blossoms.  I thought this Quilty Garden would look so cute with the cherry blossoms.  IMG_5720The 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.  IMG_5628You 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?!?IMG_5759

This Quilty Garden was such a fun Spring project.  You can find the pattern in my shop here!

IMG_5667We 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!
