Garden Fence Pattern - WIP Planning

Have you been introduced to the Garden Fence Pattern? If not, let me gladly do so :)

The original pattern seems to be found here:


There is even a flikr group for people making quilts from this tutorial which is great for inspiration: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1712881@N21/

I love how easy these blocks are to assemble and what a fun pattern they create together. Of course I had to jump on the bandwagon!! I'm not allowed to start any new projects until July but I did pick out my fabric bundle for this project:


Aviary 2 mixed with Kona Linen & Cotton Solids - click picture for link to bundle on Marmalade Fabrics

I already had the Aviary 2 prints in FQs so I ordered just the solid FQs - which you can get from Marmalade as well on their own. I went for 1/2 a yard of the Aqua and Orange Kona Linen so I think I will have enough to make a nice sized Garden Fence quilt out of this set. The 3rd fabric from the top, Kona Cream, will be my sashing and block borders which I think will look great with all these wonderful colors.

**Just a note, that orange linen is not being manufactured anymore so if you want some, get it while you can!

Stay tuned for updates in early July as this joins my WIP list :)

That's going to be a fantastic Garden Fence quilt! I'm working on a Prince Charming one right now, and it's a lot of fun to put together. Can't wait to see yours!

You're right--it is a very cute quilt, and I'm glad to hear it goes together very quickly. I love buying fabric in bundles--it's like some of the picking and choosing work has been done already. I'm looking forward to seeing progress on this.

It does look very pretty!
You all make me really want to get to my sewing room and quilt quilt quilt. The one I'm currently working on is for church to be donated to the domestic violence center. I have in mind another strip quilt, but after seeing so many other great ideas, now I'm not sure.
