Our 2022 Block of the Month Quilt “Garden Party Down Under” was designed by internationally recognized Australian quilter Irene Blanck. Irene was inspired by visions of her own treasured garden, creating a joyful and eclectic quilt for us using many fabrics- some new and some old. Our kit, inspired by Irene's beautiful quilt, includes more than 50 different fabrics from 10 distinctive brands, truly embodying the colorful and eclectic character of a flower-filled garden. The fabrics you receive, while reflective of Irene’s original quilt, will not be exactly the same.
Irene says of Garden Party Down Under,
" Growing up in Kenya our gardens were lush, colorful and filled with beautiful flowers. The women in my family love gardening, so we were never short of gardeners or flowers. When we emigrated to Australia, my mother planted numerous rose bushes (her favorite flower) in the new garden which we are so grateful for, now that she is no longer with us. Even today, we’re still reminded of her when we cut and bring roses from her original plantings inside the house.
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!
