Party in the Garden Month #10

Hello Everyone,

For those of you working on Party in the Garden BOM, you will be receiving your cute bundle of fabric soon to create the following two blocks.  The three flowers go under the flower box block.  Don't forget to make the little yellow and pink flange that add so much to this quilt.

Have some fun with the flowers poking through the picket fence.  This might be a fun time to try the flower tutorial that I put together.  Just click here and it will take you to the tutorial.  Try different denominations of coins to achieve different sizes of flowers.  They would add a lot of depth and dimension to this block.


The trees are heavy with snow this morning.  Large, fairy flakes are falling in the forest.  My view to the outside world is much different than the pictures of Spring on this post.  I expect we'll loose power today as all of the electrical transmission lines look rather droopy.  If you don't hear a peep from me over the next few days, just know that we are snug as two bugs in a rug.  The wood burning stove will keep the cabin warm and will do double duty in a pinch for cooking.  Zinny will be bounding through the drifts like the Loch Ness Monster and will be in heaven on our walks through the woods.

Enjoy your day!

As always,



  1. Sounds like you're in a gorgeous winter wonderland today, Lynn! I love how the flowers look poking through the fence and what a fantastic tutorial! I'm learning so much from you - thanks!

  2. Thanks for the awesome tutorial! Love the picket fence!!!! It was in the 50's here today. Nice but still kind of damp for my liking. So much of the snow has melted, but I hear it's coming back in the forecast...of course. Hope you don't lose power!

  3. Such a great tutorial. Thank you for sharing. Stay warm, yesterday was a day to stay in with all the wind and rain. What a difference a week makes.
