Garden Gala Quilt!!

Okay, I am a little embarrassed to admit, but I have only finished like 3 quilts this year.  Not to say I haven't been sewing . . . even more embarrassing, I  have over 10 quilt tops in the "to be quilted" pile and another 5 or so in some stage of piecing.  Things have just been a little out of whack for me.  (I am sure we can all relate to this year being a little out of whack ;)   So, when my Anniversary Sew Sampler box came, I decided that I wanted to make the project in it and have it done before the next box arrived :)   I hoped this little goal would get me back on track.   And I made it,and it felt so great to finish!!!!   So here is my Garden Gala Quilt ;)


Garden Gala is an exclusive pattern from the  Sew Sampler Box.  It uses 1 Bonnie and Camille At Home Jolly Bar and some background fabric.   I decided to add a center block, because you now I always like to mix things up ;)   I just love how it turned out!!!


Isn't that little border just to cute!!! And you know I am all about sewing Charming Baby Quilts right now :)   This quilt finishes at 48" x 48" and it is going to be just perfect for a new little wee one.  I have added it to my "waiting for a wee one to arrive" pile for a sweet little gift :)


And when it came time to quilt mine, I did an all over loose feather design.  I really love how relaxing and fast this is to quilt.  I just have so much fun looping those feathers all over the quilt, and it took me longer to piece the back and load the quilt, then it did to quilt the whole thing ;)  Which was just perfect to get me back on the Long Arm.  Now, I really want to start working through that pile of to be quilted :) 


Oh, and I figured some of you might also want to add a center block . . . so here are the extra fabrics that you need to cut to make that center flower block.  Just follow the same instructions for pieing and replace the G square with your 5th flower block :) 



And that is my Garden Gala Quilt ;)  And I am just so glad I made this little goal.   It feels so great to have a finish and is giving me motivation to quilt it all!   So hopefully, lots more finishes are going to be shared soon :)   And now I am curious, what do you do to get out of a funk??



Thanks so much for sharing this finish with me today!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!!

  1. I love your version. I may just do the same. I will probably have to use some older lines of Bonnie and Camille fabric seeing I dont have any extra At Home.

  4. When I'm not "feeling it", choosing a quilt that is quick and fun to get me back into my groove is helpful. Sometimes a large, complicated quilt can get me a little burned out so getting that quick result is perfect for getting me excited again. Instagram is pretty inspiring too. The Charming Baby quilts seem a great way to go.

  5. So fun! I love the Blossom fabric you used as a background. Works well with the Bonnie and Camille fabric.
