Girls In The Garden Blog Hop

Posted on February 24th, by Amy in finished quilt, give away, Inspiration. 213 comments

Hi there!  I’ve been teasing you all week with my applique project, and it is finished and ready to share!  Pat invited five of us to put our own spin on one of her new Girls in the Garden patterns for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company.  I had so much fun selecting a pattern and then all the fabrics to work with!  Actually, I could only narrow it down to two patterns, and I had to ask one of my girls which she liked better.  She helped me decide on Amelia’s Spring Delight:

Selecting fabrics – I would usually lean toward solids in place of batiks, since I haven’t stashed those, yet. However, I forced myself to look closer at my prints, and  select a few favorite prints to work with.  I think all the prints make it really whimsical and fun!

I also decided to make a table runner, instead of the wall hanging.  If you are a regular here, you know that I’ve made a number of runners over the last year or so – I love them!  To make it a runner I eliminated the second and third borders, and made an extra wide binding to finish framing the runner.

All the pieces were clearly marked, and the instructions are super clear, which makes for a fun sewing environment here!  I took my time stitching around all the pieces, and learned lots about my new sewing machine as I worked.  It was our first applique project together, so I had fun working out her features as we sewed.

What do you think of that birdhouse?  I love it, but I’m glad my house is a bit more subdued!

Here’s a better look at all the patterns:

Now for the giveaway details!

  • Bigfork Bay Cotton Company is giving away a pattern of your choice right here!  All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me your favorite pattern (if you can pick one!).  I will select a winner on Sunday evening, 2/26/12 , via random number generator.
  • Pat is giving away an entire set of patterns, so if you can’t decide, hurry over to her site and enter!

    Grace says:

    If I have to pick just one, then the summer coneflower pattern would have to be my fav. I love how you switched the pattern from a wall hanging to a tablerunner. Very clever! Now you have me looking at the other patterns to see how they could also be re-worked to a tablerunner too.

  14. 14

    Amy, I love your table runner! I don’t know if I can pick just one of the patterns as a favorite but I love them all!

    Linda P says:

    Amy!!! I’m squealing with delight over what you did. I have limited wall space and frequently change out what little room I have – however I love table runners and change them also. I didn’t see these in that light, and love what you did. It’s absolutely perfect! I’ve been looking at them since they came out and love each one – spring is my favorite time tho, so I may have selected it also but made my bird red – LOL!! I love how fun your flowers are!!!

    Ummm, are you allowed to tell what brand & model of sewing machine you have? I do love that applique and would like to save up for a new maching. Could you email it to me if I promise not to tell???

    I like the Spring design best. The colors in your table runner go together well and there is a lot of pattern & color interest for the eye to explore.

    I think your birdhouse table runner is a great way to display Pat’s pattern. Pretty fabric on the birdhouse and roof!

    I love the Chelsea summer pattern because of the purple coneflowers. They were outside our motel in Vermont – so pretty!

    I love that you used a totally different idea for making the wall-hanging (into a table runner) showing what else can be accomplished with Pat’s pattern. Excellent. Thank you. I love the birdhouse print, so different and unique. Some birds may paint over it though, lol. Blessings, Janet

    Janet says:

    I am getting such a wake up call with this blog hop. I have tons of patterns that I can use in different ways. Duh! I so need to start thinking outside the box!!! II love all the patterns, but the coneflower really appeals to me. That might be because of the purple, tho. I think they are all great. I’m so glad I’m learning so much about creating from designers who can think outside the box!!

  47. 47
    Amy says:

    In LOVE with the table runner…seriously…if I lived closer I would be plotting to come and steal it. I just am not good at putting fabrics together unless they come from a collection, i.e. someone tells me what to put together.

    Jeannie says:

    Picking a favorite would be very difficult. I can find a reason for wanting each one! At the moment, I’m really am liking Chelsea’s Garden. The coneflowers remind me of the beauty of my own garden — now hidden under snow.

    Nancy Hambright says:

    I love it! What a unique way to use the pattern. I love Pat Sloan, I took a class with her once several years ago and was so impressed, that when ever I refer to her to my girls, I say ” my new best friend Pat Sloan”. They always get a kick out of that. I love everything she does and own all her books and most if not all of her patterns. This is such a great idea for using her wallhanging in a different way. Thank you!

    Love your use of the lively prints! I, too, tend to stick with batiks which are more like your solids. I have a hard time putting different prints together, but you did a good job!

    My favorite season is Summer, and my favorite color is purple, and I love flowers, so that Coneflower pattern has my name all over it!

    Thanks for sharing your process!

    You are right, how can you pick only one favorite? hehe. I love the fall pattern, Nicole’s Autumn Pumpkin Patch. Then again, Amelia’s Spring Delight is calling me as well. I really would love to make all four.

    Thank you and Bigfork Bay Cotton Company for your giveaway and a chance to win.

    What a good idea…I agree Pat’s patterns are awesome…and I do like your birdhouse especially since it will be sitting on a table…

    There are sooooo many that I love!
    Blue Paint, Dancing Chickens, Earth Wind and Fire, Out to Lunch!, The Quilters, and Spring Storm ReDesign.
    My favorite is definitely Blue Paint though. I would make it for my mother-in-law who is also my best friend :)

    Amy–I love your tablerunner. It gave me a different approach to the patterns. An “Aha” moment!! Tablerunners sew up more quickly than a full size quilt, which is great for me.

    My favorite pattern is the Fall. I love pumpkins.
