Grandma’s Garden Quilt Block of the Month- Block #8

Block number 8 of my new quilt pattern, Grandma’s Garden, called Lettuce!   Each month, I will be walking you through this quilt top step-by-step with tips, and thorough instructions and free templates. This sew along is now over. This pattern is now available in my shop.

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. Go HERE to see the current free block for Grandma’s Garden!

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!
