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.
The backing is all about the turquoise centerpiece print!
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

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.
