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.

Now that the holidays are well and truly over, and we have started the year 2020. I am back in my sewing room while the house is peacefully quiet, my process for starting the new year is to finish some of the quilts that did not get finished at the end of 2019. One of the quilts to finish is the Treasures in the scrap bin quilt from the sew along, and as I am working on it I would be like to share my thoughts with you.

Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden.
