    Tending the Garden by Blackbird Designs

    I probably have all the books written by Blackbird Designs and have made most of the featured quilts. Love the big pieces and big 28 inch blocks to do needle turn applique. Here is my recent finish. The plan is to hand this one on the wall behind the bed.

    Holy smokes, I love it. I've looked at this pattern many times. Did the Love Letters from When the Cold Wind Blows. Have been wanting to do another of their patterns. Love the light spring colors!!

    WOW, those ARE BIG BLOCKS. But you made a very lovely and cheery quilt with the fabrics you used.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love your quilt. What a lovely job you did with needle turn applique. I am finishing my first needle turn and wow, what a job it has been. Think I will look into the book. I do much better on larger pieces.
