These gorgeous fabrics in soft muted colours are from the Secret Garden collection, designed by Lynette Anderson and produced by Lecien back in 2011, and they really are lovely to sew with. The fabrics were cut up and pieced together to make Broken Dishes patchwork blocks..
...the patchwork and applique blocks are joined together, set out in a 5x5 layout. A narrow inner border is then stitched around the blocks, ready for the outer border...
...a pieced outer border is finally added to the quilt top. The finished top measures 38" x 38" and will make a very pretty wall hanging. Now I just need to decide how to quilt it, whether to by hand or machine. Oh and I need to doodle some ideas for a quilt label too!
