Garden Mystery Block Blog Hop

Today is my DAY!!!  The blocks will be posted on FRIDAYS..until you have collected them all…Have you been following along already or is this the first you have heard about it?   I did post awhile back saying it was happening…but no worries you can still go and capture those 3 previous blocks…Here is my block…GROW

Garden Mystery Block Blog Hop featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

I love being part of a blog hop!!! Yes, it is another thing I have to do…but when you see the finished quilts made from these events it makes it all worth while, I just helped someone (Kathy) with their setting for the Patriotic blog hop we did last year…her quilt is going to be amazing!!

I  truly loved Rhonda’s Potting Shed block and wanted to design something that would go along with her block…so GROW is what I have come up with..lots of flowers and a cute little lady bug enjoying them…the spouts on the bottom have not yet blossomed so thus the name…grow…not all gardening is about the bloom…it is the process and the excitement of watching it ALL happen…those first few sprouts are just as celebrated as the blooms! Even though the blooms get all the glory…kind of like quilt making right???  The finished quilt gets all the glory but for me it’s all about the whole process…

Listed below are the other designers participating in the blog hop…make sure you go to each site…download their pattern and support them by buying their kit…if you cannot do this for everyone or you are doing your own wools/fabric…please try to support them in other ways…things like making sure you comment or LIKE/ Share their posts on social media platforms- buy from their websites- share with your sewing group/guild what you are working on… just by being excited is contagious and some of them will possibly buy from us as in your FB groups what you are working on and who’s design it is….and so on…you get it…right?  Support doesn’t alway mean with your money …just make sure you follow the rules involved with copyrights and do not give anyone another designers work…show or tell them where they can get it themselves…

THANK YOU for Blog Hopping with us ALL…We sure APPRECIATE you as our customers!!!  Without you events like this would not be happening!!!

  2. Thank you, I do try and talk about the designers I follow when doing this type of project ! Usually thank them on their blog too. Love reading your posts and you talk about your life as well as your job, you are inspiring to many of us !!!

  3. I love this block! Trying to order kit and it states in stock but there is no button to add to cart.

  4. I just love these blocks so far. It should make a really neat wall hanging once all the blocks are done. THANK YOU ALL!!!

  5. I am interested in the Moon Garden BOM with background fabric. I clicked on the “green with fabric” but did not let me register. Is this option still available? Should I call the shop directly with my details?

  6. What a nice block to get us thinking about Spring. Today I awoke to snow covering my crocus & daffodil shoots. Fickled weather.

  7. This is such a cute block! It really does compliment Rhonda’s block! My ‘to do’ list is growing, too! Also, any progress on the triangle gatherings setting? Those blocks are done and eagerly awaiting a home.

  9. The designs to date are all amazingly beautiful — cannot wait for what’s next in the upcoming weeks

  10. I just saw the block of the week and I would love to start but I missed the other weeks. Is there a way I can get the other down loads. I see grow and potting shed but would love to have the others as I love to work with wool and love hand work, i’m Very excited to start this beautiful quilt. ❤️

  11. I seem to be having trouble collecting some of the blocks that have already been posted in February. I have received yours Lisa but can only access one of the other ones. When I go to the other websites for February I don’t see their free pattern access only the ability to buy the kit. Any help you can give would be appreciated! Thank you!

  12. Question on block size and finished size.
    Start block: 10 1/2″ x 10″
    Finish block: 10 1/2″ x 10 1/2″

    Other blocks finish size: 9 1/2″ x 9 1/2″

    Is finish size for this block correct at 9 1/2″?

    1. Wondering the same thing. I was just going to cut out the background, but the size is conflicting. Can we get a confirmation on which is correct?

  13. Thanks for the great block. I was unable to download and print the block from last week. I tried 3 times. What did I do wrong? I love all the blocks so far. Thanks for keeping us inspired!

  14. I’ve followed prior instructions to look at the blocks specifically for the March 9th the rusty Crow strawberry trellis in a pot block of the week download, but it is nowhere to be found. The blog has not been updated since 2017 and that week’s download is nowhere to be found. Is there anyone out there the who can help me please? A million thank yous!

    1. I am not sure as to where you see that the blog has not been updated since 2017, lisa’s last post was just a few days a go. You are on the correct page that you posted this message on. You can look on the date marked March 5th or on the March 2nd post. Hope that helps, thank you jessica
