Auntie Green’s Garden

This year I decided to purchase Auntie Green’s Garden by Irene Blanck as a block of the month from Homestead Hearth.


I have never made a block of the month quilt where you get all of the fabrics  picked out for you but I must  say I enjoy getting the little package of fabric every month.  I have added a couple of my stash fabrics for a little variety even tho it wasn’t necessary because they do send a nice selection.


                                                                                                                                                                                This is Decembers block all stitched and now I am working on the wreath of leaves that goes around this center pot of flowers. The packages come around the middle of each month so I have couple of weeks to get my January block finished before another one arrives.

  1. I have been watching the progress on another blog of someone making this quilt design. And have admired the blocks a lot. I have tried doing some block of month kits and would prefer to have the fabric all at once instead of monthly. But it is nice having a surprise in the mail each month.

  2. This is lovely and oh so tempting but 2014 looks like I need to be much more frugal so I will content myself with following your progress. Looks great.

  10. My goodness - your applique projects are all stunning!! Enjoyed seeing you first block for the Biggs quilt. Just started the Di Ford Mystery BOM quilt from Homestead Hearth - never have done a BOM by mail before either.
