Rambling Ways Benny's Garden Block

Benny's Garden Block/Pine Valley Quilts Rambling Ways Benny's Garden Block ! I have been working on the next block for the Rambling Ways BOM Quilt. I decided that calling the blocks by numbers is pretty boring, so I have named each block. The next block is called Benny's Garden Block. Benny is our Bengal cat, he love's being in the garden and often sits in the tree watching the birds!!!! He is well behaved and well fed so it's only play that he is interested in. I love the birds in the garden and at this time of year ( Spring/Summer) they are busy making nests and feeding on the pollen flowers. I also love birds in applique quilts, it took me a bit of practice to draw a decent bird for applique but I got there in the end and think this one's pretty cute.

Berries, vines and just a couple of flowers for Benny. Benny's Garden block will be ready to download here. Happy Stitching Sharon

Lovely Sharon, i hope Benny doesn’t catch too many of those birds. I like applique blocks with pieced, multi fabric backgrounds, they add a bit more interest than just one fabric.

While working on a new quilt for my soon to be born granddaughter I decided to do a tutorial. On some quilts, especially those with pieced backgrounds, I like to remove the freezer paper as I invisibly machine stitch down the applique piece. Instead of cutting away the background afterward. This little tutorial may help you.......

It's here !  It feels so different to actually have a printed copy to look through and see the final outcome of all my hard work.  The book has instructions and lots of pictures for the two main methods I use for applique in my quilts, I hope you will give them a try. Read more.....
