This “Disappearing/Reappearing Nine Patch” was the result of a charm pack that was a gift – and a challenge. The construction was done without a pattern, and I just loved the result. It was given as a gift to my sister, who loves the Cheshire Garden as much as I do.

After being tired of our long, cold winter, I made my own “dish garden” of flowers to brighten up the days. It’s still too cold and wet for planting flower beds, but I have my flowers. Paper pieced and hand quilted.

My neighbor has lovely evening primroses blooming in her garden in May. They are so delicate and sweet! I took pics last year and then altered a photo in Photoshop. I had Spoonflower print the fabric and then quilted it. This is cotton fabric, with a silk batting.

|Flowers for Betsy Bug
By: Billie Kretzschmar, Texas, USA
My Grandmother made the embroidery blocks 35 to 40 years ago or more. I made them into a quilt for my Mothers 89th Surprise Birthday Party. Grandma Jessie called Mom Besty Bug when she was a little girl. Hence the name, Flowers for Betsy Bug.

|Frog of Sharon
By: Julia, Mississippi, USA
Spring, a time of flowers & frogs. I tried a new technique, for me, to make a “Rose of Sharon” quilt. I only made a quadrant thinking I may not like the technique. The way it turned out it looked something like a frog, so I call it “Frog of Sharon.”

|Garden of Memories

I made this quilt for my sister-in-law. Each of the 12 flowers on this quilt is different. The fabrics and different trims were from family and friends. There are 6 different leaves. This was the first full sized quilt that I hand quilted. I embroidered it with a variety of hand stitches.

I made this mini pieced wall hanging showing a full line of quilts on the clothesline a few years ago. The squares on the quilts are 3/4 inch in size. It really reminds me of spring.

I wanted a colorful wall hanging, and Mystic Blooms was perfect for that. I pieced it together and also used fusible applique, and the flower centres are embellished with Swarovski crystals. It reminds me of flowers fresh from the garden.

This is from a quilt along mystery. Gifted it to a SIL that was diagnosed with breast cancer. She loves gardening, so I chose a blue/yellow palette. She loves the cheery yellows when she is down or not feeling well. Daisies surround the quilt, and you can just see the pinwheels spin in the wind

Sweet Pea was a quilt that I made for the birth of a grandniece. What is more spring like than the smell of old fashion sweet peas? I used primary colors to make it look more juvenile and it all worked. This was a joy to make along with the quilt Giraffe Twins that was made for her brother.

|The World is a Garden
By: Debbie Clarke, South Carolina, USA
This trip around the world pattern is done in all florals in a colorwash technique. I used 12 florals and spent hours picking them out so that they would blend. I love floral fabrics so this was fun to sew and quilt. I try to do at least one garden theme quilt each year.
