In Pops Garden- The Finale

Yeh, I can finally show the full quilt of the new BOM In Pops Garden........thanks for following the installments and for being so patient.
I love these colours, these are my colours and they also remind me of the colours Pop used throughout his house. I did keep the borders quite simple with just a small row of triangles to add some interest and frame the blocks but of course if you didnt want to include these, you could always put in a plain sashing!


I didnt want to over quilt this one and some may like a little more quilting but I was looking for that "puffy/snuggly look" (professional term there lol). To me its like a big hug from Pop and he gave the greatest hugs!


I am actually really proud of me, I did stitch a label (normally I find a spot in a corner and scribble it on with a Zig pen!!). Notice the hat, it also appears in the pattern cover photo on the chair! I have also included a couple of label ideas for you to stitch in the final pattern of the set.

So on to a winner!! I promised a full set of patterns to one person as a thank you for letting me share my Pop and the winner is................Vickie!! An email is on its way to you shortly!

For those of you interested in this quilt, please contact either here or here and they will so kindly help you out.

I feel so lucky to be able to use a skill taught to me by my Nan (stitching) to make a tribute to my Pop. He indeed touched my life and those who knew him, deeply. Miss you Pop!!!
