Finally a sunny day here on the mid-Atlantic coast; this has been the grayest few weeks I can remember.
So on a brighter note . . .
The January Block from Pat Sloan's 2016 Block of the Month called My Secret Garden.
Sourcing strictly from stash -- see that button on the left? -- I'm attempting to duplicate her colors generally, but mine aren't nearly as bright. Oh, well. The price was right (already paid for!).
You may remember reading the 1911 novel The Secret Garden by Frances Burnett. I wonder how Pat's mystery quilt would look in the famous Downtown Abbey fabric line reflecting the same era?
Pretty yummy I'd bet. While just searching around for any collection images, I found these two sets of fat quarter bundles on sale for what works out to be $5.23 per yard! D*** you, sew-from-stash resolution!
Back on the 1911 book title: If you search to buy a copy, be sure to type in THE Secret Garden and not the name of Pat's quilt pattern, MY Secret Garden. The results are quite, shall we say, dissimilar, much to my surprise.
What are you moving forward with this Monday? Join me at the linky parties over at What a Hoot!, Em's Scrap Bag, and Cooking Up Quilts.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
