To A Garden Tea Party in Quilter’s World (June 2010)

Yippee! I get to show another quilt in its entirety I completed many Fridays ago!! To a Garden Party is featured in the “For Kids” section of the latest issue Quilter’s World! Can’t you just see this in a little girl’s room?

Picture from Quilter's World

The lighting was perfect one afternoon last week, and I simply had to take pictures of the quilt in order to show the quilting on the quilt. But you can see here I had an all to eager helper who kept wanting to get ON the quilt!

The fabrics are from Somerset Cottage by RJR – another winner by Robyn Pandolph. If you are into Shabby Chic, and all things flowery — Robyn Pandolph’s fabrics are definitely for you:

As usual, piecing and quilting was done using my favorite Aurifil Mako 50 (color 2310) thread. Batting used was Tuscany Silk by Hobbs‘. The quilting was mostly free-motion except for the straight lines using the walking foot:

I like using my curly Q quilting motif when I am doing sparse quilting for a nice texture:

So, here are the car keys – are you ready for a Garden Tea Party?


Thanks again for visiting – I hope you have a glorious weekend.
