I've been excited all week to finally finish and share my version of Sandra's "Follow Your Own Path" quilt, which I've called "Follow the Garden Path!"
42.5 x 46.5
I didn't really know what the name of this quilt was going to be until I found the backing fabric for it. This was a Joann's find, and I could tell it was going to be perfect as soon as I saw it!
Lots of florals make up the arrows, so there was definitely a garden theme going on from the beginning. (It just took me awhile to catch on!)
The red was my favorite so it turned into the border as well. The leftover gray background fabric tied everything together for the binding.
I don't know if you can tell from these photos, but I used the serpentine stitch for both the quilting and to finish off the binding, and I really like the look.
I admit that I'm not much of a gardener, but I can grow petunias!
This quilt doesn't have a destination yet, so I think I'll just enjoy it on my red Poang chair for now!
Big thanks go out to Sandra at mmmquilts for making her great patterns available to us every year for a quilt along! This is my third year to participate and I've enjoyed every one. I'll be linking my finish up at the Parade of Quilts over at Sandra's place!
