Still Down In The Garden...
November 12, 2009
Let me begin by saying "thanks" for all the lovely comments about my new Block of The Month Quilt, Down In The Garden. I am having so much fun stitching it (yes, I am still stitching and it's set up day for Australian Quilt Market tommorow!). Today I played with making the chrysanthemum blocks (picked because of the name to go with my quilt):
I also finished off all the remaining stitchery that had to be completed.
Now it's a long night ahead as I applique down the chrysanthemums, sew the blocks together, and add the borders! Oh, I am such a deadline girl!
I have until about 10am tomorrow morning to complete the top and take it over to Rosie's before she leaves for set up in Melbourne.
It will be a very fun weekend with quite a few of us staying in Melbourne on Friday and Saturday night. I was thinking 'pyjama party' but now I'm thinking 'I'll be able to sleep!' because my quilt will be finished!

I have just registered to join a BOM for Down the Garden here in the UK and can't wait for the first package to arrive. It is wonderful

Well - that's yet another gorgeous project that I'm going to have to squeeze into my already busy world of unfinished projects..But I can't bear to miss out...so it's just got to be added to my collection. I have to admit - I'm not a gardener, but do take delight in other's gardens and appreciate the beauty of a flower...

Absolutely love what you have presented so far on your blog of your BOM. I have loved making Leanne's House and the Butterfly Garden and have other projects on the go. Part of me is very excited about your new patterns but the other part thinks that I am going to have to live beyond 100 years to get all I want to achieve done!

Thanks for more sneak peeks! I still haven't finished my Leanne's House quilt yet so I'd best get onto it so I can be ready for this next one. Have a great time in Melbourne.

No doubt you can do it! I love the new BOM and am making sure to pass along the info to one of my friends who saw my Q J BOM of yours and made it also. She's been wanting a new project.
