Sharing My "It's A Garden Party" Block Today

It's another fun row along with Marian from Seams to Be Sew. She's the queen of these row alongs every year...thanks, Marian! This year's theme is "It's A Garden Party" and we had several choices for sizes of blocks. I went with a finished size of 30" x 30" for my "Ready to Party" block.

These guys are ready for a fun time in the garden!



The fabrics I used are Canvas by Northcott, who generously gave us each a yard of fabric!


Flowers for the garden, of course!


You can find the pattern for my block HERE.

Be sure to visit the other blogs to check out what they've made!

Your row is so adorable! I love those garden critters...in fabric, not in real life!

There is never a single time I come to this blog Carol and don't find something that I absolutely fall love with. Another great pattern this year. You truly have the greatest imagination and a whimsical sense about you. So much inspiration here... Thank you for these six years of rowing with me, and hopefully more to come, and I'm also enjoying the Halloween group on FB... yea baby, that's my kind of group!!!

This is so cute! Thank you for the patterns and sharing!

works4me said...

That is ADORABLE. Love it.
I like to combine brights in my quilts. I also love copper so combine a bright with copper with typically good results.

kupton52 said...

Absolutely adorable block. I just emailed that I have an issue with opening the file from dropbox. I usually just do a direct download but was unable to this time. My favorite fabrics to use are older Thimbleberries or reproduction prints. I'll have to go through my brights (or buy some more...lol) to finish this cute block.

kupton52 said...

...working now....third attempt worked fine. Cute, cute pattern....thanks so much.

Susan said...

A row that looks like one of yours. =) I love your style!

Sue Green said...

My favorite color to combine with others is blue. Thank you for the cute block!

Beth said...

That skunk's expression is so darned cute! I love to combine red and blue in my quilts, in all different shades, and often with a gray or gold.

Rochelle aka Bella Quilts said...

Hello: This year it seems to be purple and pink. However, I love all the brights. Thanks for such a cute block. It will look nice in a wall hanging. Thanks to the wonderful sponsors for the prizes and discounts.

Sewgirl said...

Your little critters are just darling! Thanks for sharing your row. I am very fond of using blues and greens in my quilts..I have the largest stash of them in my collection!

Love your blicj, especially the skunk and racoon! Thank you
Love blending greens and purples

Orla V said...

What a lovely block! The dog takes me for a 6k walk early morning, and we often see raccoons and skunks. They are so cute, and I must admit, skunks are about the cutest, watching them lumber along with no fear, never hurrying. Shame they have their own secret weapon - or I would adopt one. Thank you so much.
