Sweet Picket Fence in THE QUILTER (May 2010)

Good morning, dear Friends! I can almost feel the advent of spring in my neck of the woods!!! We have had warmer days. It was 6:30pm the other night when we were out driving, and it wasn’t even dark… spring is almost here. The anticipation is building up, especially when I look at my Sweet Picket Fence quilt!

This quilt is also featured in the current issue of The Quilter magazine, along with Twilight Trails. The fabrics used are from Henry Glass‘ Simply Sweet Collection. The farbics really ARE sweet:

Can you spot the picket fence fencing in the cute little flower plots? Kits to replicate the quilt are available from Heartbeat Quilts:

I opted for an allover feather and curly-Q background quilting for the quilt:

Quilting was done over the Tuscany Silk Batt by Hobbs using Aurifil Mako 50 100% Cotton Thread (Color 2024) for my top and bobbin threads:

The back of the quilt looks like this:

I really enjoyed working on this quilt. I especially love the polka dotted picket fence:

I hope your spring garden plots would be as sweet as these sweet fabrics these year that butterflies would be knocking down your picket fence to get in! ;)

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely and sweet day!
