Featured Quilt - Garden Party Down Under

You asked for it, you got it. Up close and personal pictures (and we mean super high resolution) of Garden Party Down Under by Irene Blanck, The Quilt Show Block of the Month 2022. She writes,

"When I first began designing Garden Party Down Under, thoughts of childhood afternoon’s spent drinking tea with my family in the garden came to mind. I now invite you to join me on this year-long journey as together, we create that favorite place in your special quilt garden.

Clustered around four meandering vine filled urns are our quilt topped tables set with an assortment of whimsical vases overflowing with fresh cut flowers. To finish the lovely outdoor setting, we’re adding a charming picket fence and bunting. Sew, come along and stitch up a garden party that is sure to be treasured for many years to come!”
