I've mentioned a couple times that my stitchery group decided to work on the Garden Club Quilt--it's the main quilt from this book:
The quilt is meant to be constructed in block-of-the-month type sections, and the first section is the part that's on the cover of the book up in that box in the right hand corner (minus the flying geese on the left side). See that?
I finished that section and wanted to show you--
While I love the darker folk art/homespun look of the original, those shades remind me of fall and winter, and I already have plenty of quilts for that time of the year. Instead, I decided to make mine a little brighter, so it would fit better in my home for spring and summer.
There are additional smaller projects in the book using some of the images from the larger quilt. For instance, there's a wallhanging with the basket of flowers in the center. That wallhanging project uses more flowers in the basket, and I liked that fuller look better, so I added more flowers to my basket in part 1.
I don't think I'll start the next section just yet. I'm not sure what I'll work on next, but I'll be sure to let you know when I do. What are you working on?
