The Quilted Crow...
Still Down In The Garden...

Down In The Garden...

Those of you that visit my blog regularly know that I like pottering around in my garden (okay, I love pottering around in my garden)! It's my main source of inspiration, and my main source of peace.  So, whether you have a passion for gardening like me, just love to potter from time to time, or just enjoy being in a garden, my new Block Of The Month Quilt, 'Down In The Garden', was designed with you in mind:

I have drawn from the inspiration in my green house (don't you love my new pink strawberry flower!!!):


And from my greenhouse to my watering can collection, you can come on a garden journey with me while stitching this quilt:

Even the herbs get a look in (my very green basil there behind the regular white flowered strawberry):

From blossom to daisies there's loads of flowers in this quilt (and heaps of stitchery!):


Well, it's back to frantic stitching now (right after I run out to the greenhouse and water!). I have only a few days before Australian Quilt Market and I haven't finished stitching the entire quilt myself yet!

I will show you more than a few sneak peeks over the coming days and will let you know what fabrics and threads, etc. that I have used.

Hope you like it!

P.S. Two of my favourite stores will be running a Block Of The Month pattern and kit with almost exactly the same fabrics as my original. They are and And a little hint, I have used Rosie's fabrics in the quilt and both these stores have them in stock!
