It’s a Garden Party….My Day

Welcome lovely friends to my day of the It’s A Garden Party Row Along. Hosted by Marian of Seams to be Sew. I am so happy share with you the block I designed.

Coming up with a design the words to the Christmas song ‘Joy to the World’….’Let Heaven and Nature Sing’ kept rolling through my head. So that became my inspiration. I was imaging all things in the garden singing the way only nature can.

The block I designed is finishes 30 x 30 and is a mixture of hand/machine embroidery and machine applique. You could choose to just machine applique/embroidery or use all hand applique/embroidery. It’s up to you.

I want to say a great big thank you to Northcott Fabrics for providing the fabric I used for my background block. Their fabric has always been a favorite of mine and I was totally thrilled to use it.

What I’m showing today is the block before it’s completely finished so you can get an idea of how it looks in fabric.

You can find the download for my pattern HERE.

Now to share with you the wonderful giveaway. It is a FQ bundle from Timeless Treasures.

Additional Notes About Giveaways From Our Sponsors

You will receive a tracking number except for overseas shipments. Because of the nature of many of the prizes in 2020, most packages this year will be sent via Priority Mail except where noted above.
  • Please note, every effort is made to protect the prizes. They go into a plastic bin when I receive them, and it is covered by an airtight cover. I have a dog in my home and I have a smoker in my home, so I do everything possible to protect the prizes.
  • Most companies are very good about getting prizes off to customers quickly also, but some companies are overseas, so please allow all sponsors a 2-week time period before you report to me that you still haven’t received your prize. When the company is overseas, it can take 6 weeks to 90 days for an item to also arrive.

  2. I love blocks/quilts named after songs or lyrics. And I love the lyric, “Let heaven and nature sing”; I have a little plaque with that on it and I keep it displayed year-round because it doesn’t seem limited to Christmas.

  5. I love your contribution to the garden blocks and rows. But now I have that Christmas song stuck in my head LOL.
    I love the unique and inspiring creations from you and can appreciate your hard work participating in this QAL. The bunting and musical notes are terrific ideas.
