Garden Club Quilts



Author: Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene

Leisure Arts is delighted to present this collection of garden-inspired quilting projects from the Country Threads Quilt Shop. Experienced quilters will enjoy piecing and appliqueing the rows and patches of sweet blossoms, fresh vegetables, twinkling stars, handy baskets, happy birds, and lots of golden sunshine! Refer to the General Instructions on page 112 before beginning. The large Garden Club Quilt and its twelve very special companion pieces were all “grown” from brushed cotton fabrics in warm, earthy colors. You can plant a touch of softness on your table with place mats and a tea cozy or reap wall hangings by the bushel. And, whether you keep all of your harvest or share the bounty with a neighbor, you’ll have the reassurance that this season’s crop will last for many years to come. Happy stitching!
