GARDEN DELIGHT REPEATED

Back almost two years ago, I showed this "Garden Delight" quilt top that I had finished.
A fellow blogger asked to make a trade with me.  I traded this quilt top for a finished quilt she had just made.  I had intentions of making another for myself but not waiting almost two years to do it.  Some of the fabrics in the first quilt top were used up.  And along the way, I used some leftover fabrics in other projects.  I decided I had better get busy and make the second quilt top before any more of the fabrics were gone.  So here is number two.  Still to be quilted.

No trades this time.

I am having a stitching weekend and enjoying it.  I hope you find time to do the same.

What?! no trades at this time?! Lol
It's a beauty...now I remember this one and how surprised I was you traded. I'm glad you made one for yourself.

So cute! And you finished the top just in time to enjoy it for spring, quilted or not! Both are darling! I'm headed down to sew in a few minutes and hope to find time tomorrow to stitch as well! Nice you are finding time to sew also!

That was very good of you to trade the first time around. If I attempted to applique something like this no one would want to trade for it! : )
It is good you finally got one made for you.

I like your second version, less orange in it so more prim and more muted shades, beautiful piece.

I'm in Awe! That is on my list of to do! It's a lovely quilt! What I like about some of Jan Patek's projects, the pieces are not so intricate, thus easy to hand applique! Thank for sharing! Cheers!
