Online Quilt Festival with Park City Girl

In the Spring, I entered a quilt in Amy's Online Quilt Festival. It was fun and inspiring to visit the other sites to see the quilts that everyone had made. I have been thinking about which quilt I would like to enter in the festival and decided on "In My Garden". I made this quilt from a pattern I found online. It had been done in Christmas fabrics. I had recently purchased some summer/garden themed fabrics at "Sitting Pretty" in Ridgetown, Ontario and decided to use them to make this quilt.



I took this picture, appropriately, in my garden! We had lots of rain this summer so the grass was green and lush all summer long.

This quilt top is currently at the long arm quilters and I have been told that it is next in line to be quilted. I can hardly wait to get it back and add the binding and label to finish it off! There are some quilt shows coming up locally and I hope to put it on display for others to enjoy.

Thanks for visiting!

  3. The colors work really well together, plus I love that star block. Looks difficult to piece.
