Color Garden Pattern

The purge continues!

I got this pattern so long ago that apparently it is discontinued. I got this pattern so long ago that I had no idea what paper piecing was, much less that I would not like to do it. I got this pattern so long ago that if it were not in a little plastic sleeve, it would be yellowed at the edges.

It is partly paper-piecing and partly applique. Neither of which is my particular thing.

As you can see, it is a nice enough design. I had a gardener-friend in mind when I purchased it. It's really cute. And, yes, I'm stil friends with the gardener. But I made her a different quilt.

No name drawing on this one. Just whoever is a paper piecer and applique artist who would like to have it and is the first to respond, be sure to let me have your mailing address. Because it is yours. Hope you'll claim it soon because I'm heading off to the post office either today or tomorrow!

I love applique and to put it together with paper piecing seems like a neat idea. I'd be delighted to take your pattern off your hands.

If you can send me an email, I'll reply with my mailing address.

By the way, I've enjoyed reading your blog for a long time now. It first caught my eye because my son lives in Philadelphia, and then kept my interest both with your great pictures and your sometimes funny and sometimes thoughtful and sometimes political and always thought provoking comments.

Thanks, Vicky M. vminer@rochester.rr.com

Actually, you don't need to email me. I just found your email on the blogger profile, so will send you my address right now.

Lovely pattern Nancy - it's so good to recycle and pass things on to someone who'll use them :o)

Good for you! I don't want to think of all the patterns I have that are like that. I'm going to start going thru my books soon for the same reason. I know I have books and patterns that I'll never use - they were a good idea at the time...

Nancy,
It is a nice pattern and I am sure that Victoria is going to enjoy it- what a great way to clear out your sewing room of patterns that you are not going to make.
Happy Purging ,
Warmest regards,
Anna
