|The English Garden Quilt by Stitchin' Tree Quilts is light, fresh and airy. It primarily consists of 3 different sizes of Pinwheel blocks - 6 7/8, "3 7/8" and 2 3/8". |
The Pattern is FREE and will be included with each kit.
This pattern allows you to make 2 sizes - a Queen size quilt, 84" x 96," and a Throw, 60" x 84." You'll notice that the picture shows some appliqué on the border. Put the appliqué on or not, we've seen this quilt both ways. Appliqué templates are included with the pattern.
Each kit will include enough material to make the top, border and binding. Backing is optional.
Since you'll be making lots and lots of pinwheels (which are half square triangles put together in a pinwheel), you might be interested in the Bloc Loc Half-Square Triangle (HST) trim tools. These are truly the greatest and will help you make the most accurate and consistent set of half square triangles possible. Typically we'd suggest only purchasing our largest 6 1/2" HST, however that one won't be large enough for the largest - and you'll be making so many of the medium and small pinwheels - we suggest the 4 1/2" HST and the 2 1/2" HST. Be sure to watch the video to see how to use, it's quite slick.
Our kits will include a very pleasing and calm green for the background - Light Olive Garden:
Other fabrics will be selected from our shop.
