Lets Have A Garden Party

Back in August, I shared this little sneak peek of a magazine commission I had just finished:
And now I can finally reveal that it was a summer tablecloth called Garden Party, designed for Creating Country Threads Vol 10 No 5:

Dont they do such wonderful photos?? I really love seeing how they present the projects and this issue has some gorgeous ones that you will want to try!

I do love this and was eager to get my sample back and when it arrived before Xmas I was thrilled! The Dresden Plate was made using Anne Idas method and the tutorial for it is on my sidebar and I love the border pinwheels, so pretty!

Nothing says summer better than butterflies, flowers and parasols (thanks Jules) and the stitcheries frame each corner so well. I had a lot of fun stitching these and dont be deterred by the Satin Stitch, Ive added my little tip for neatening it when finished!!
I had this little corner of our garden in mind while designing it. It does look pretty out there and is perfect for a lazy afternoon with some coffee and cake. Hope you love it as much as I do!!
Just finally, Anne Ida and I have decided to use our 2009 Resolution again for 2010. It worked well for both of us and eliminated a pile of UFO's that I seem to add each year. Feel free to copy Annes Ida's lovely badge and add it to your own blog to help keep those pesky UFO's at bay!

  10. Congratulations on a quilt design being published. It is very well done. Combining embroidery with piecing in quilts has certainly become a very popular thing to do.
