In the Garden

White Flower

A quilt series by Through the Needle's Eye

We are delighted that this quilt continues to invite new stitchers into the garden! These designs were created for our wool Block of the Month series, In the Garden. The blocks can be part of a quilt, or you can use the finished block in any way you would like: a small wall hanging, tablemat, or whatever you and your creativity decide! We have created a quilt with the twelve blocks, but we have also made a few smaller wallhangings with individual blocks. It's never too late to join us In the Garden!! Patterns are available in our web store and include ribbon and special materials to create the blocks, and blogposts for each blog can be found on our blog, Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye.
