Meet Me in the Garden Stitch-Along Intro & Supply List

    This is going to be a gorgeous quilt, and I’m glad it’s spaced out over time. I am not one of those people who has to post my finished blocks at 12:01 am of day one. I like to thoroughly enjoy the process and the learning. And, maybe I have to catch up on Oh Say Can You Sew. And Revel. And the wool project from your class in Ohio!

    It’s PG all day every day here!

    Gorgeous! But – I’m not a big fan of patterns with that require many special rulers. Oh well. It’s definitely pretty.

    Beautiful quilt. I am thinking of using my scraps, but each time I go to my scraps, I’m inspired by something else…

    Anyone hesitant to invest in rulers, each of these rulers is a stand-alone, there is so much you can do with each one of them! They are fun to use and your blocks will be so very accurate. And with Lisa using them to design future projects, well, that’s a win! Additionally, Val will be demonstrating how to use them, a great opportunity for new learning.

    … disclaimer: I do not work for PG!

    So excited to begin ! I’m making this quilt to honor the wonderful memories I made with my Grandfather. He owned property which he turned into a huge garden…vegetables, fruits, flowers, apple trees and more. When I was young, he’d pick me up in his old pick up truck to work in the garden using tool many handmade by him. I learned so much ! Just me and Grandpa ! I’m 69 yrs now and cherish these memories every day ! ❤️

    The colors of the new quilt are so beautiful! What level experience is required to sew this quilt?

    1. lisabongean Avatar

      Hi Karen! I would say that skill-wise, this quilt would be good for an ambitious beginner and up. I say ambitious because it’s not so much the skill that it takes, but more the time and six-month commitment it takes.

    I do a lot of QALs, but I’ve never been so excited as I am for this one! Also, I second Carol Eberhardt’s point about the rulers; I actually already have every one of the called-for rulers, and I use them often!
