Garden Party - Trepidations

I keep looking at Bonnie Hunter's Garden Party to be sure this is going to "turn out".  Hers is so cheerful and mine is pretty much a copy of hers so I'm feeling confident.  I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it certainly will cause a few heads to turn, perhaps whispers, hopefully giggles.  My favorite response is "Look what she did!" 

Every block would make an interesting and attractive quilt by itself, even the odd combinations.  You probably figured the edge will be bordered and then points will be cut leaving a straight edge.   


The red chain sure does holds it all together. 

The most recent rows are laid out while I am balancing myself on crutches - arghhhh!  This is likely an ancient untreated injury, pre-highschool, which has raised it's ugly head.  Plans are underway for some kind of orthopedic repairs on my ankle. Might slow me down for a time.  8-((

Elaine, I just love it dearly!! I took out my 1.5 inch strip bin and cut a whole bunch of blocks...but I really like the contrast you have in yours, so I will mix mine up a bit!! Sure sorry about your ankle...boo!

Sorry to hear about your ankle issues. Hope it can be repaired smoothly!

That is a great quilt. The red does pop although I suspect the right green might have too. Hum, makes me want to get out my chunky churn dash blocks and consider making some more and getting to the point of a lap quilt. Decisions, decisions!
