Remember last week I mentioned a new pattern? Well, it is here now! Freshly released and a fun make with modern cutting techniques (or traditional if you prefer). My new quilt is called "Woodland Foxes" and is ideal for baby or toodler as you can make it in any size you require with ease - crib, cot, single or lap quilt.

A Flower Garden Quilt

Over the last week, I have been finishing off my "Flower Garden" quilt pattern. Coordinating the fabrics was the most fun and wording it in the pattern rather than referring to color makes it easy for you to pick your own set of fabric colors. Note: To learn more about color choices, I can highly recommend Elizabeth Barton's Color Course - it has a wealth of information and exercises to try.

If you need a new way to use those 2 1/2" strips you have been collecting, you want to give this pattern a try "Flower Boxes". There are multiple layout and border options to make any size quilt you need and this technique is definitely a new one. Include the flowers or not, the inspiration can lead you into a new world of creativity.
