The Garden Party Quilt Is Finished

It's amazing how a little pile of cut fabric...

...can be changed into something like this with just a little thread to connect the pieces.

My Garden Party Quilt is sitting on a big chunk of black lava rock near Santa Clara, Utah.
I had to be careful because the rock was sharp, but it didn't require anything to hold the quilt in place.
Between the winds and the roughness of the rock, the quilt just stayed where I put it.

The quilt is 52 1/2" x 63" and is mostly made with the Basic Grey fabric line, Sweet Serenade.
Quilting was done by those sweet ladies at Quilted Works.

The back of Garden Party.


I love the scalloped look in the border and the musical notes fabric on the back.

The pattern came from Missouri Star Quilt Company's tutorial HERE.

It's such a great feeling when a quilt is totally completed!

  4. I know this is supposed to be about quilting but what caught my attention is the lava rock! I'd never thought about there being lava rock in Utah. If I had a "bucket list", seeing an active volcano would be on it. Seeing a real lava rock would nearly be there, wouldn't it?
