A few weeks ago, I won a chance to choose a pattern from Timeless Traditions.
Norma has so many sweet patterns and it was very hard to decide, but I have loved "How Does Your Garden Grow" ever since she showed sneak peeks of it on her blog. I knew her pattern for "Silent Night" would be in the current issue of Simply Vintage and her "Woodland Tree Skirt" is in Quiltmania this month too, so.... "How Does Your Garden Grow" was it!
|I was so excited when the pattern came in the mail!|
I just had to make the strip sets right away and cut the applique background triangles from my little stash of Aged Canvas.
Those wrinkles and variations in color are all dyed into the fabric--the triangles are actually pressed perfectly flat.
|I was so excited, I couldn't stop myself from setting up a few of the wool applique blocks, even though I should be working on finishing at least one of my UFO's for December...and then there are always my wool hexies to stitch.....|
|okay...I lied...I set up ALL the blocks...my bad...!|
|So instead of finishing a UFO, I have started a new one--ack.|
Good bye "How Does Your Garden Grow"--I'm putting you away in an Art-Bin.
See you in the Spring!
