Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


Lots of Roses- Finished

I made this top earlier, so I just had to quilt and bind it.

I’ve had this fabric for a looong time, so I’m finally using it (there’s more left!). I didn’t want cut it, so I just sliced it and inserted the chevrons.

I quilted it with zig zags all over.

This is in my Etsy shop.


Progress on Hourglass and Chevrons





During the Labor Day Sew In on Twitter I made twenty-four of the Disappearing Hourglass blocks, half of what I need. On the first one I forgot to rotate the center patch, but I decided I like it, so that’s how I’m making them.  My personal twist.


The backing fabric arrived for the Chevron commission, and it was worth waiting for, wasn’t it? 


I have it all spray basted and ready to begin quilting today.  I added extra batting under the gray areas to make the feathers stand out.

Hope you’re making progress with your projects.  I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
