GARDEN DELIGHT

The completed "Garden Delight" wall hanging top.
The pattern I used is by Jan Patek and is in the book "Festival of Life".  Maybe I will have this quilted and ready to display by next spring.

Catching up with you, and I love your spring quilt. I know it will be done soon.
I like your Collector's block too, such a wonderful pattern.

It sounds like you work the same way I do. You finish your tops quickly, and then it takes ages until they are quilted.
