Today I am releasing Block 2 of my newest quilting Sew Along – Grandma’s Garden! Grandma’s Garden was inspired by vintage seed packets. My designs are always influenced by my travels. Lately, our travels have included jobs in agriculture such as the sugar beet harvest and greenhouse work. This unique and beautiful quilt features many of our favorite veggies as remembered from those pretty seed packets from many years ago. Be sure to go to the bottom of this post for this month’s Free Block!
Today, I am releasing block number 2 of my new quilt pattern, Grandma’s Garden, called Carrots! Each month, I will be walking you through this quilt top step-by-step with tips, and thorough instructions and free templates.
Grandma’s Garden was created with traditional applique, with touches of embroidery for embellishments. Of course, it can easily be done in fused applique or even with blended wool felt! See the bottom of the post for the link to this month’s free pattern!
So how does this work?
Starting April 1, 2019, blocks are offered on the first of the month, with the last being offered on December 1, 2019. Each block will be available free to all Sitcom Readers until the end of that month.
