" Pandemonium Quilt" - The Kitchen Garden block
This next block is " The Kitchen Garden" which sits under the " Folly" - left side of quilt.
It is 32" x 17". Those blobs you see in each corner are supposed to be vegetable plots - I'll leave it to your imagination to decide what they are! For me they are mainly colours, they don't really look anything resembling vegetables. They are contained in the curved " hedges" and if you are making this quilt, extend those curved and straight hedges right to the edge of the block and trim excess later. I've put in a number of farm animals including a little kitten who is terrorizing the chickens. This time I've managed to draw a dog also. The garden seats the cats are sleeping on are rather elaborate, I've seen those kind of seats in my travels, my daughter thought they were beds. The row of blocks separating the"folly" and " kitchen garden" are the double circles done on 3 fabrics, the shot cottons and 2 contrasting prints. They were fun to do!
