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 www.quiltfabricdelights.com and www.underthemulberrytree.com. And a little hint, I have used Rosie's fabrics in the quilt and both these stores have them in stock!
