Down In The Garden At Foothills...

I had a really wonderful surprise when I dropped in at my local patchwork store, Foothills Fabric and Threads, the other day. Sandra, one of the store owners, has been very busy teaching 'Down In The Garden' classes AND making her own sample:

Sandra has a real eye for putting colours together and her threads are just as divine as the fabrics. I wish you could see her quilt so far in real life because photos just don't do it justice:

Wanting to do a little less stitchery than me, Sandra has fussy cut some fabrics in place of some of the tiny (but time consuming) stitchery blocks:

Maybe you're feeling inspired now to have a go at 'Down In The Garden' in a soft and country colourway. If you would like to do a version like Sandra's, you can contact Foothills Fabric and Threads on (03) 9754 6166 or [email protected] . Lots of these yummy 'Heart and Soul' fabrics by Whimsicals are still in stock there, and of course the 'Down In The Garden' patterns:

Have a wonderful day,
