Hi everyone! I’m back to talk about the first pattern of my pattern line – Garden Paths. I hope you like her…
I’ve had this design floating around my head for awhile now, and am excited to offer it as a full-color pattern featuring my Veranda line, which ships in August. Garden Paths was really the inspiration for the entire pattern line. It looks like a complex quilt to make, but it really isn’t, so it is great for the sewer who has explored the basics of piecing (rectangles and maybe some triangles) and wants to take the next step.
Deborah Norris of Gastonia, NC did a spectacular job on the quilting – I LOVE the freehand roses and leaves she quilted down the white areas!
I’ll be printing the patterns in just a few weeks and will be shipping to your local shops in June. For those of you without a local shop, Kimberly at Fat Quarter Shop will have them all!
If you like to plan ahead, this pattern measures 68″x 96″ and uses one roll-up of 40 (2-1/2″) strips, 3-3/4 yards of background fabric, 1-1/4 yard of inner border and accent square fabric (1-3/4 yards if you like to fussy cut), and 1-1/2 yards of outer border fabric.
Since this pattern is special to me I’m posting it over on the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Pay them a visit to see all the wonderful projects people are working on!
