A Garden in Bloom - my new favorite quilt

After making Anni Downs' Gossip in the Garden quilt, I wanted to try my hand at making my own version of a garden quilt.

Some of the sayings I made up, while others I found on Pinterest.  I drew the pictures onto white cotton and embroidered them in the evenings while my husband watched his choice of television programs.  Using the embroidered blocks as my guide, I  surrounded them with various quilt blocks.

I used some scraps I had on hand which featured bees and hives, but the main fabric I used for this quilt was Moda's Chestnut Street. 

This was truly a labor of love.
