Donald and Aaron's garden is also the backdrop for the finally finished "Field of Violets" (February Color in Judy's Patchwork Times Monochromatic Challenge). I have the pattern started and will introduce it later in the year after I make another sample -- how about something "scrappy" ???? I have accumulated a list of 5 (still growing) of you who emailed me wanting the instructions. I will send each instructional step as they are completed in hopes of a little proofing from friends before going global :)!
There are really only 2 blocks: a 16 patch from 2" strips and "chubby pinwheels" from 3 1/2" blocks of violet and 2 1/2" of background. The tiny pinwheels are the cut aways from the "chubbies".
Closeup of the quilting -- an all over pattern of feathers and flowers in the centers and corner panels, with a little detailing in the center framing and side triangles.
Today is "Good Friday" down in South Louisiana ..... it is also a day of Boiled Crawfish and quality time with Family.
Over at Sarah's, she is having a party of her own -- the Whoop Whoop Friday! If you have something to show off, head on over to Confessions of a Fabric Addict and "LINK UP".
