It's a Garden Party!

I have a lot of garden themed fabrics. And I have a lot of large flowered fabrics. Oh, and it looks like I have some birds and some bees.  Those are garden themed aren't they? 

What to do? What to do? 

Hmmmm....I guess I like this. I guess I'll continue on. 

This is "House Party" from Adding Layers by Kathy Doughty. 

But the "House Party" quilt has some (what I would consider very ugly- very, very, very ugly) applique in the borders.  Yuck! . My quilt won't have that.  No. No. No. BUT I might try some broderie perse applique instead in the borders and use some of that large flower print fabric I was talking about (or make more blocks and not have a border at all). 

Well,'s fun to think of a garden party now that it's cold. 

Surprise! Another new WIP.

I love to visit you here for all the very bright pretty colors, then I go home to my blog with it's drab Civil War themes that I love so much. Does that make me a schizophrenic quilter??? Nevermind, I promise not to hurt myself or others, LOL!!!
