This is my version of Mary Ellen’s Garden design by Lori Smith. I love her patterns!! The size is 45 x 52 and I think will be a terrific wall hanging for my new front hall.
While sick with the cold etc., I would go into the sewing room and cut out one or two pieces of fusible applique, playing with my box of civil war repro scraps. I was suprised it actually got put together this way, over the course of many days. I think because I wasn’t working on something else at the same time!
When we were worrying about Emily and contemplating the outcome, I sewed like a madwoman on the piecing for this quilt. Before I knew it, before I was even ready to stop sewing, the piecing and top was done!
