Garden Patch

I’ve been slowly working on this quilt pattern by Kim Diehl. I am like so much how this top is turning out – I could see it as being my favourite pieced top that I’ve made in a while.  The centre is made from basic nine patch blocks, but they are bright and happy to look at.  The real beautyh of this quilt will come later with an appliqued border on a bright blue fabric that I have put aside.
