I am so excited to announce that our first quilt pattern is available for purchase! This quilt combines piecing and machine applique. I've been so excited to have this project up as it's a pattern I started working on many years ago.
Included in the pattern is a second colorway, Fenced In Rose Garden, which was inspired by deep purple roses and peonys. Besides new colors, this version also reverses the rail fence blocks so the light colors start in the middle. It also reverses the flowers so the centers are dark.
Although I absolutely love flowers, my brain keeps seeing this pattern turn into a basketball quilt. I imagine the rail fence blocks turning into a hardwood floor, applique basketballs bouncing across the quilt instead of flowers, and the borders in team colors. When I told this to my hubby, he said the Boston Celtics' court is a parquet floor and would look perfect for this quilt! He was on to something!
