I squeezed in some time this week to sew together the remaining blocks I was missing for my Garden Party quilt project.
I’m so excited to have it all sewn together! I love how bright, bold and colorful this turned out.
I was able to scrounge enough of the red fabric from my dwindling garden party stash to add a border. I think it looks so much better with the border.
It turned out to measure about 43 inches wide by 56 inches tall, which will be a great size for a lap quilt.
I have the backing and binding all ready to go; just need to pick up some batting to quilt it.
It would be so awesome to finish this by the end of the year. In the meantime, I’m so happy I got this far with it.

You are all ready to go with the binding ready too! I really do agree that the border completes the look. You have given me a push to finish my mini bow tie quilt!
