Audrey II By: Sharon Scott, California, USA
This is the very first water color quilt I made. I saved this sweet-pea pattern from an old, old batting cover. The Sweet-pea is my favorite flower, and the flower of my birth month. My Granddad gave me a bouquet of sweet-peas every year for my birthday beginning when I was 1 year old.

Christmas in July By: Sharon Vrooman, New York, USA
This was our guild’s summer challenge -each given a bag with a small piece of seasonal fabric – mine was snowmen. I made a color wash of our rose arbor entry to one of the flower beds, adorned with inviting snowmen for a Christmas in July. Hand quilted
Garden From Heaven By: Cheryl Hartzog, Florida, USA
Made 4 yrs ago, took lots of different flower fabrics, inspired by a book called Watercolor Impressions by Pat Margaret & Donna Slusser.
Made at my Mom’s on her wallboard, took a week to get the right layout before sewing. I had fun making this and just finished the machine quilting in July.

Garden Shed By: Debbie Clarke, South Carolina, USA
From my sewing room window, I can see a corner of our garden shed, which was my inspiration for this wall hanging. Viewed from a distance the path flows from the border to the secret garden behind the shed.

Taking Time to Smell the Roses By: Erilyn McMillan, New Zealand
A challenge entry in 2007. Every watercolour piece is a flower. I added the trees after the quilt underneath was completed. This is what I think relaxing, with a good book, is about – taking time to smell the roses.

Water Garden By: Cathy, New Jersey, USA
I went through quite a watercolor phase, cutting up a good part of my stash into 2″ squares. Then I discovered the strip piecing method and this quilt was born! It hangs in my kitchen, in rotation with several others I made to fit this space.

Watercolor Garden By: Jill Majers, Utah, USA
I started this quilt in a class on watercolor quilts and finished it for a guild challenge. I knew I wanted to add applique and the tulips seemed to suit the spring like feeling of the quilt. On one of the leaves is a tiny ladybug. I looked for a suitable button, but ended up using an earring.
