A riot of cheery blossoms grows alongside (and among!) a crazy pavement.
In this variation of my Garden Path design, I've used a single piece of print fabric to create the path. Its pattern of square and rectangular paving slabs allowed me to shape the edges of the path, and also cut out some central spaces so that I could fill them with flowers. The flowers are created in lots of different bright colours, and I've 'fussy-cut' some of the leaf fabrics to create the effect of veins.
I bonded the shapes onto the dark marbled green background to create the path and surrounding flowerbeds. I then added borders of a green-and-brown sprigged print which makes it look as though the garden is edged with a trailing vine.
Finally, I quilted by machine across the whole design, using a variegated thread and working in long S-shaped lines at random intervals.
The quilt is backed in plain pale green; the edge is bound in a blue-and-green batik that complements the leaves and flowers, caught down with a decorative wavy machine stitch.
A hidden casing at the top back will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a large recyclable jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: 25in (c64cm) square
I've been playing around recently with different ways of quilting by machine, and I really liked the effect of this particular pattern. I drew long S-shaped curves ('ogees,' in official parlance!) onto a piece of thick paper, then cut along the line and used this as a template to mark my stitching lines on the design with chalk. The variegated thread produces lots of serendipitous colour combinations across the different areas of the design.
This is part of my Garden Path collection, and you'll find loads more designs featuring flowers in the Enchanted Garden, Garland and Rockery Garden collections, as well as dotted around in my main shop.
