How Does Your Garden Grow Technique Series w/Cat Nix
How Does Your Garden Grow, designed by Cat Nix, was inspired by the fabric panel, “Ruby’s Flower Garden,” manufactured by Paintbrush Studios. The classic floral designs were originally created by the well known quilt & needlework designer, Ruby Short Mckim of McKim Studios. These popular garden flowers were included in her “Flower Garden Quilt” which was originally published in the Akron Sunday Times in October, 1929.
Honoring these timeless treasures, Cat has created the How Does Your Garden Grow (HDYGG) series of patterns and technique classes that offer a little bit of everything for quilters who enjoy handwork & fabric embellishing. Whimsically textured in design, the selected floral blocks are colored, appliquéd and stitched. Projects range from 1 - 9 floral blocks. Combined with an assortment of patchwork & additional embroidery blocks, these quilts are a Joy to make & share.
