Block #19


Hello everyone!

Today we have another block for our
Gardener's Wife Quilt a Long

This week we're doing another gardening tool, so I've added a Wheelbarrow.
It looked so empty, so I added a few pots and bag of potting soil to it.

  The block measures 10x11"




I know it seems weird...... but

the whole image seemed so far up to the top of the block and the only way I can center it, is to add a 'border' to the top and then edit the lines.

So....
You finish your block and then cut off the extra fabric to make it 10" once again. 

Easy...





Our block was tested by Isabelle Engel of Germany. You can see she had to add a strip to her block to make it more centered. So that's why I had to change the size of the block so that it wouldn't have the extra line in it.  Thanks Isabelle, this was really Wonderful and I'm really grateful for all your help.

I love the funky look of the wheelbarrow fabrics. Its really a great change from the always dull colours you find in the garden tools.

Block 18

                                 


Hello everyone!
Its another Monday and another in our
Gardener's Wife Quilt a Long



Block 18 is an Insect block
a lovely Beetle  - of some kind. 




I just wanted to make some kind of easy insect, so I have no idea if this is even a 'real' beetle.
For our garden purposes, this is a large-ish bug.






As usual the block measures 10" (26cm) and is on the Intermediate level.

One of the testers who help with these blocks is Anneke Emonts of the Netherlands. This is her amazing and shiny Beetle. I don't love insects, but this block is wonderful!! Thanks so much!

Block #17




Hi there everyone!

Another Monday and another 
Gardener's Wife QaL block.




Today we are in the Fruits group again and I've got a 
cute Cherries block


As usual it measures 10" (26cm) and is on the Intermediate level.






Our test block was sewn up for us by Isabelle Engel of Germany.

We were chatting late yesterday afternoon through FBook and she asked if the block was sewn up yet and then offered to sew it for me. She dropped what she was doing and sewed up the block for us to see it this morning. 

WOW!! Isabelle you are an amazing and wonderful person. 
Thank you so much for all your help.
