"Victoria's Garden"

On a visit with friends from my sewing group to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in 2006 four of us purchased "Victoria's Garden", a kit from Petra Prins from the book by Marsha McCloskey and Sharon Evans Yenter entitled "Blended Quilts From in the Beginning".

Although the fabrics are not all the originals from the pattern they are all lovely and came in a be-ribboned box.  The finished quilt measures 76 1/2" x 88 1/2" - certainly one for the long-arm!

"From the floral bouquet print cut 6 1/2 " squares"

Paired double four-patch units sewn together to make
16 patch blocks

Strippy blocks sewn together in pairs

And here are the remaining double four-patch and strippy blocks
which, together with 4 set aside four-patch units for the corners, make up the component part.

Assembly is next on the agenda!
