About this Quilt

quilt-katies-garden-flatJoin us in this gorgeous garden bursting with color, print and style! Flowers in every color grow every which way. This quilt is perfect for lovers of applique and scrap quilts. There are very few rules in this garden; the cute design helps all the colors to play very nicely together. Rick rack adds a special, unique touch to this cheerful pattern. The whimsical frog, ladybugs and caterpillar in the appliqued border don’t hurt, either.

This pattern can be adapted to use with your favorite applique method, it’s easy with fusible raw edge applique, and would be an extra special take along project if you prefer turned edge applique. Audrey used raw edge applique secured with a machine blanket stitch, except for the bias stems, which are stitched down by hand. It’s up to you how you can make this pretty garden your own.

It’s not often that you see a quilt with so many colors and prints included, and this one shows how well it can work. So dig into your scrap pile and don’t worry if the pieces are small; you can find a place for everything. This garden just needs lots of color and love to grow. And once you’ve made it bloom, it will just make you smile to look at it!
