I've had a few grey and gloomy days, so I'm MORE than ready for 'My Secret Garden' Mystery to start! Block 1 is....
The DC Botanic Garden! With both my Colorways
Do you LOVE the big block size? I'm really excited about this!
This might be my favorite photo taken on that day. The greenery was glorious and yes, that is the Capital right next door.
On the download page I tell you about the garden. This is the inside with orange trees, luscious greenery, and gorgeous pops of red. Click the photo to see it a bit larger at my Flickr page.
When I'm working on blocks I love using these flannel boards. And yes i KNOW you can make one, but I'd rather quilt! So I bought one already made in a few sizes.
I sew with Aurifil thread in 50wt (YUM!). If you have not tried it yet, get my kit or single spools at my Pat's Picks Page
I have a video, two versions I'm sewing, and a little about our theme, My Secret Garden... ALL at our amazing sponsor for my Mystery ... FreeQuiltPatterns.info!
