Garden Jewels

Hi everyone,

Hope you are having a great week. It was an exicting day around here because my new patterns came from the printer.  I love my printer.

Patterns are now shipping, so now we can gear up for some fun giveaways coming up in the next week.  My International Director of Shipping (i.e. newly-11-year-old) and my Chief Ironer (the one who sewed half of the Under the Veranda Sampler but doesn’t like exalted titles – but she is the power behind the throne, so to speak) were busy bagging items while they watched Cake Boss last night.  Then I was busy bagging patterns well into what remained of the night while watching pretty much anything remaining on the DVR.  Lots and lots of bags.  Lots and lots of patterns.  Lots and lots of late night TV. 

There are only two patterns I’ve yet to introduce, so I’ll cover one today and be back with another tomorrow. 

Does this quilt look familiar?

Re-introducing Garden Jewels…  It was a quilt that was featured in Quiltmaker this summer and I’ve gotten lots of requests to see this in pattern form. 

 As always, it is printed in full-color with lots of graphics, including a Quilt Assembly Diagram on the center spread.

Kimberly, of Fat Quarter Shop, is offering it as a kit here.  If you are interested in doing it in Veranda you might want to get it now because some of those pinks are sold out.  If you sew it up in another collection please come back and share pictures in my hopelessly-neglected-by-me-Flickr group

Happy sewing!

  1. Oh gosh it is just fantastic!! I love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a pretty quilt. It's definitely on my to-do list.

  3. I had to save that one to my favorites! It even looks Accuquilt GO! Baby friendly. Love that part too. Can't wait to see what you have to post for us tomorrow.

  4. I love it! I think it might be my favorite.

  5. very COOL, how did you get started making your own patterns? I've asked a local quilt store, and they just tell me what they want, professional pics etc…. I have made a few into PDF form already, just wondering how you get started…

  6. I love your fabric choices! So full of happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Ooooooo these are looking enticing!!

  8. AHHHHH! Another pattern of yours that I WANT and I WANT TO MAKE NOW. But there isn't nearly enough time as it is to sew. And I'm sure hubby and the kidlets would not be happy if I forgot to go grocery shopping or do the laundry. Perhaps over the long holiday weekend I will get some much needed studio time.

  9. I love the use of child labor, especially while watching tv.

  10. Terrific pattern and ingenious system of getting the patterns packed with the kids…a true family affair! Thanks for sharing.

  11. that is great. I really like that you have the pattern in color. fun!

  12. Love Garden Jewels! Love the bright and fun colors. Best of everything on the patterns.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

  13. Garden Jewels is awesome — but even more awesome is your pool of talent there….it's so hard to find good help, and you lucked out on a shipping director *and* a chief ironer! Whoohoo! (Any chance your chief ironer will consider taking on some outside work? LOL) Heehee!

  14. Ooh LOVE this pattern Amanda. So pretty.

  15. I love this pattern! It combines both a vintage look with the fresh new fabrics that are on the market today!

  16. I really like "garden jewels" with Veranda fabric of course!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. Where can I purchase Garden Jewls?

  18. Hi I am back ๐Ÿ™‚
    I found the pattern and the magazine.In the magazine are there all the instructions to make the quilt?

  19. Laura- tried to email you but it bounced. You can get a pattern at fat quarter shop but, yes, if you have the original magazine you can use those directions to make the pattern. Happy sewing!

  20. Gorgeous! I'm just getting interested in quilting and found your blog through Fat Quarters. I love it!
