Back to the Garden!

It's been so long since I have posted here. Hello Everyone. I have been so inspired by Kim's latest and greatest incredible pattern Pandemonium (which I now have in my possession thank you Liza!). But before I will allow myself to even take a glance at that and begin planning fabrics to use and which blocks I will make, I am going to finish making my garden!


I am only making up five of the six gorgeous long flower panels in the centre of Kim's Flower Garden pattern, and I won't make the border, so really I only have two long panels to go, not much really, right?


I have enjoyed making my backgrounds blocks using various fabrics in stripes, I think I will need sunglasses to look at this when it is finished!


Once again I am reminded why I adore creating from Kim's patterns, her instructions are wonderful and those applique shapes are just so addictive!
