a new Garden

 If fabric were seeds...

another Garden

I would be, this week, planting a new garden.  Here is my row of fresh shiny dreams, full of potential, full of promise.   Time to get my hands dirty!

Thank goodness they're not, though, because I need to have a finish in just about one week!  Quilts over gardens for me.  I'm pairing prints with solids for flowers and setting aside background fabrics for another twin-sized quilt.  This one is for my little niece, Bella, the last of my sister's 5 children for whom I've been stitching bed quilts this year.

I'll be Gathering Flowers again, making another rendition of Anna Maria Horner's pattern.  I plan to cultivate a modest bouquet tossed over an expansive bed of pale creams and greens.  It's the spring version of my Waltz of the Flowers, which was so audaciously summer, don't you think?

Too bad it's autumn, haha!  But, let's be honest, I can dig girly colors all year long....
