Garden Window

It is supposed to feel like you are looking out of the window into your garden.

This quilt pattern is by Liz Porter, right out of the July/August 2006 Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine.


It is supposed to be 84 x 101 but I want to use it on my Kingsize bed and I want a nice drop. Liz's pattern calls for 2 large print florals, one light and one medium. I could not find any big florals in 'light' that I liked. So I got this big orange floral with some blue accents. I picked up the blue accents from the orange and used a blue Fusions print as the other side of my 7 inch half square triangle. The pattern is pretty simple but after 3 rows, I got so excited when I started to see the pattern take shape on the design wall.

I am completely clueless about how to quilt it. I want to follow the garden view with maybe, diagonal feathers, but an all-over with Baptist Fans would also look nice, too

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
