It's A Garden Party Show 'n Tell

Did you enjoy the designs during the It's A Garden Party Rowalong?

Here are the designs I chose to make from this year's event for today's Show 'n Tell:

My own of course - Poppy Dance Party. Read all about it here.



I also made 
Kathleen McMusing - Picnic Under the Quilt Block



Words & Stitches - Picket Fence

Heleen Pinkster's Home-Tweet-Home (one component from it)
   

Ms P Designs - Pinwheel Posey Parade -- think Forget-me-knots

Stitchin' at Home -  Garden Blooms



I then got out my bricks (Humpty Dumpty's Wall) from last year's Rowalong
 --both a horizontal set and a vertical set that my mom made 'testing' the pattern for me




--and resurrected my Dogwood Branch from 2015!



Adding some extra stems, sky, tree trunk and grass filled in a few bits to organize all the elements into a single scene. Then added a black frame to finish it off. Fun! Right?
This is now my Spring Garden Party



Did you make any of the designs? Put something together? Tell us where to see it in the comments! Thanks for following along!

Thanks to #northcottfabrics for providing us samples each year.
Thanks to #electricquilt #eq8  (been with it since version 5!) couldn't design without it!

I've got several available in the shop(including the Dogwood branch), I hope you'll stop by and check them out and all the other fabrics and patterns I have available. This link will take you to my Northcott offerings, browse around the rest of the site for more.

  2. What a beautiful wall hanging. I think the arrangement is great and I am amazed at your ability to create such a fantastic overall view from the many individual parts. I don't dare to do something like that. It is easier to place the different rows one below the other, but this requires more!

    I am enjoy your skills! Stay tuned.
