Fabric garden

I love my garden, which still needs a lot of work to be done, but it is so hot and humid out there, that I prefer to sit in my basement and sew garden blocks. Some patchwork, some appliqued, embroidery, you name it. My goal, at a certain moment, who knows when,is to have a beautiful big arty garden quilt. 

These are just some blocks that I stuk on the design wall. I started years ago and stopped. I think, though, that I will continue, I must be able to make an addition every now and then!!!

The bird is coming along, I nearly finished the quilting. It is going to be a cushion. The chicken is ready and can be used as placemat, wall hanging or e.g. cover for the laundry basket.

 I am sure my grandkids like this hen, but at this moment they will get these aprons. The dwarfs picking apples, washing their doggy, fishing. All outdoor activities. 

With some of the members from the Quilting Bee Sparta we are making summer bags to sell at  the bazaar at A & B Creating. Also there we use flowers, hexagon EPP flowers!!

The bags are ready. I just don't have any pictures yet. Next time!!


  1. Dearest Ada,
    Your Fabric Garden work looks all lovely!
    One can only admire your dedication.

  2. Beautiful garden quilt you are making there. The aprons are very cute, have not seen Noddy and Big Ears fabric for ages. The hexies look great on the bags.

  3. Τί καταπληκτικό το πάπλωμα του κήπου!
    Όταν θα τελειώσει θα γίνει ΤΈΛΕΙΟ.
    Οι ποδιές και οι τσάντες κι αυτές υπέροχες.
    Να είσαι καλά και φιλάκια πολλά

  4. Πολύ ομορφες κι ενδιαφερουσες δημιουργιες!!
