Garden Walk: Entry #1

This block is "Garden Walk" from Eleanor Burns' book Egg Money Quilts.  Several years ago, I took a quilting class on this book.  Even then, this was my favorite block from the book.  I did make some changes, as the original pattern called for two colors, and one background.  My garden always has more color than that!  It makes me think of the hymn "In the Garden".

The text fabric is Moda Sunkissed, by Sweetwater.  The blue fabric is Full Moon Forrest, by Tula Pink.  
Believe it or not, the background is this great gray from Connecting Threads.   No matter what I tried, the grey looks very blue in the is not my strong suit!

The yellow floral is from Lucien, Flower Sugar.

The text was just perfect for this block, and pretty fitting for the song too!

I just love the words.

 Okay, I know...overload.

Well, the requirement for the contest was a 12" block using text fabric.  I think this about covers it!  I am linking up with the Texting While Sewing Contest.  There are some other fabulous blocks at Amy's place to check out.




  1. Thank you for joining KT! The colors in this block are so beautiful. I can't wait to see the final entry as well!

  2. This block is beautiful! I am so partial to star blocks anyway. Your colors are fantastic, and I think the way you fussy cut the words was really, really neat!

  3. I love it. Test blocks enhance most everything they are used in. You gave the piece great balance with the color selection. Brava, KT.


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
