Garden Party




I can finally share one of my quilts that was away from home for about a year!!! Introducing...Garden Party!



Garden Party is a fun quilt that uses a layer cake and goes together super-quick! I used Central Park by Kate Spain for my version!



This quilt was away from home for so long because it was being photographed for the American Patchwork & Quilting 2013 Calendar! Garden Party is Miss April! The calendar comes with an instruction and pattern booklet so you can create all of the fun quilts and projects included in the calendar.


It sure is nice to have this quilt home...it's the perfect quilt for summer snuggling.  Now...if we could just get some kind of a summer cool down over here...clouds...rain showers...hopefully!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
