Patchwork Projects: Garden Party Quilt

I am so excited to show you my finished Garden Party quilt!

A former quilting bee I used to belong to helped make some of the blocks using this tutorial for a “2.5 Times Around the Block” quilt block. I wish I could have made it a little bigger but my stash of the red mingling and ice mingling prints from the Garden Party fabrics designed by Anna Maria Horner was quite limited.

My friend Julie, a professional long-arm quilter, did a beautiful job quilting it.

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am with this quilt! I started making it about three years ago with a quilting bee I belonged to at the time, and it’s one of the few quilt finishes I’ve had in a looong time. Projects like this are one of the many reasons I love sewing and wanted to learn how to design fabric, sewing patterns and surface patterns.


Block: 2.5 Times Around the Block
Size: 42″ wide x 55″ high

      Oh yea, I’ve had those clogs for a few years and started wearing them again. They are super comfortable.

    1. Thanks so much Shauna! It’s quite a colorful quilt, isn’t it! That’s one of the many reasons why I love the Garden Party collection – such a variety.

    1. Thank you so much, Penny! This quilt project was quite fun to make. I’m a huge fan of AMH so I’m hoping to keep going with a quilt for each fabric collection.
