Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


Rainbow Finish

This quilt is finished and has reached it’s new owner.

It’s the fourth one of these rainbows made with 2.5″ straight grain fabric strips. My customer wanted these colors that are so popular now. Great idea!

I did the cloud quilting in the white background again.

And you know what I’m doing with the scraps!


Sunday Stash Report: 3/27/22

A finish! These placemats started as a printed panel, and then I trimmed them out with strips from the Stash. They will eventually be in my Etsy shop.

  • This week: + 1.0 yards, – 2.5 yards
  • This year: + 18.75 yards, – 20.0 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 1.25 yards

Next up is this version (#4!) of the rainbow quilt for a commission.

Enjoy your sewing!

Sunday Stash Report: 3/20/22

Yes, fabric was purchased. This is for a commissioned baby quilt, so part of it will go out soon.

I used 1.5 yards to make the Sunflower hanging.

  • This week: + 5.75 yards, – 1.5 yards
  • This year: + 17.75 yards, – 17.5 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: .25 yards

Keep using your stash!


Sunflower Finish

Today I finished the Sunflower hanging. (It’s straighter than this, I was fighting the wind.)

It’s 23″ x 30″. I ended up putting a hanging sleeve on the back. The blues are not showing up well here, but they all read as blue, not gray.

I think the quilting gives it a lot of texture and energy. I’m pretty happy with it.

Yes, I bought 5 yards of fabric (remember my problem of being out of blues?).

I did finish Clue #3 of the mystery quilt, but I can’t count that fabric out yet.

  • This week: + 5 yards, – 0 yards
  • This year: + 12 yards, – 16.0 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 4.0 yards

But I’m going to start finishing things and beef up those numbers soon!

We’ll be getting to work any moment now! Take care.
