Quilter's Garden Blocks

I finished making 3 blocks for the Quilter's Garden BOM swap. There were 3 blocks to choose from to make: a tree, clothesline or a fence, which all blocks have a mini quit attached. I made 2 tree blocks and the clothesline block. I hope to make the fence block too, but I wanted to make sure I got the blocks done in time for the swap, so I might make more blocks later. I loved this one. I got a bit creative with one of the trees too as you will see.
I made my tree with scraps of yarns and threads. I used a washable stabilizer and sewed the yarn and threads to the stabilizer until I felt I had enough. Then I washed the stabilizer out and cut out the tree top shape and stitched it in place. I am keeping this block.

This is the clothesline and I added to 2 mini quilts and embroidered the clothespins to tack the quilts in place. I am keeping this block too.

I will be swapping this block.

These 2 blocks I am keeping. They need to be sewn together, but I might make another block, so I will wait and see what I want to do first. I see it might be better if I make the clothesline connect to another tree or post, so the clothesline isn't just out there in the air, lol!!!

  2. Cute blocks. Your threads and yarn tree top is so great! At first I thought the quilts were part of the block design but now I see they are completely seperate little quilts then attached to the block. Waaayy cool that is!
