Monet’s Garden


Last year at summer Art Camp we cut strips and squares and made a quilt with interlocking lines. I used a soft green and lavender garden print with block printed yellow, brown, and lavender squares. The back is a forest green that I bought on sale at Houston Quilt Festival for $6 a yard–and it’s 108 wide. My Grandquilter will only let me quilt from left to right—right to left breaks the thread every four inches. I’ve squared it up and have just half of one side left to bind, a bit of thread end burying and then it will be ready to be put aside for the next nephew/niece on my parents side that gets married. There are 18 or 20 or so—and she made a quilt top for each one of them. It’s taken me a long time to work through them–and I’ve added one of mine to each gift.
