The Calico Garden Quilt

I've always admired the circa 1950 Calico Garden Quilt from the Shelburne Museum collection. I love the little flowers tucked in between the on point nine patches--so cute. There are so many different versions out there, but I recently purchased the pattern published by Hoopla which is pre-printed on freezer paper. How smart is that!?! I'm thinking that this will be my next project when I finish my "A Bountiful Life" quilt.

This is a similar version from Primitive Gatherings. Love it!

You have to check out this version by Judy Mathieson--especially if you are a dog lover-it's a hoot. Follow this link and hover your mouse over the quilt to see it close-up. You will be surprised at the fabric choices--so fun!

  1. That is such a pretty quilt! I love all versions of it. And Judy's quilt is really fun. Who would ever know that all those different elements were in it! Make you smile when you see them.
