    Garden Party - First Quilt (ever!!)

    Ok, so I'd attended the Rocky Mountain Shop Hop here in Colorado. I had an idea that I wanted to create a quilt based on the theme of Colorado's Wild Flowers and came up with Moda's "Garden Party." I was called everything from 'ambitious' to 'crazy' and I'd settled into a label of 'determined.'

    Now, mind you, the binding and the sashing and the tying must still be completed; this is, however, essentially how the quilt topper will look.Name:  quiltie 001 (465x640).jpg

    This is beautiful. I have never seen this design before. Is it your own creation or is it a pattern. Lovely colours, very special. Thank you for sharing.

    That's very vibrant. Those look like dresdens.. are they appliqued on that square? Are those little colorful petals at the corners going to be 3D and stick up when they're done?

    Very cool. Do not stress over basting and binding - take a deep breath - your patchwork is gorgeous. I think you should name your quilt Determination. Congrats on a beautiful quilt.
