Hi Friends, what do you see when you look out your window? That seems to be what Betsy the Bunny is thinking here.
And perhaps Benjamin here has a better idea, being perched all the way up there.
I am sharing with you today my Garden View quilt that is featured in the June/July 2014 issue of The Quilter.
The design features an “open” and “airy” layout. It gives the illusion of one looking out one’s window and seeing this unbelievable floral profusion! I like the contrast in scales of print in my “window” quilt center.
The spinner blocks are representative of wind-blown blossoms floating in the air.
Garden View uses fabrics from Benartex’s Ambrosia collection. Click here to view the entire fabric range. You will notice the really sweet swatches in the peach/pink colorway.
I have re-colored the quilt to give you an idea what it would look like with the peachy pink colorway.
You can read about how I decided to quilt around the spinner blocks here.
I hope you have enjoyed Garden View. I certainly enjoyed designing and making the quilt. I hope I will get to see floral eye candies on an upcoming family getaway. Meanwhile, I wish you a lovely weekend! I shall catch up with you next week.
