After a lot of internet searching, I thought I would merge two patterns: Quiltmaker's Garden Patch (cute layout, but the veggies are a little simplistic and it is only 23"x30") with Ruth McDowell's pieced vegetables (very cool veggies but no setting instructions or suggested layouts)
|Garden Patch Quilt|
|My attempt at a layout in indesign.|
Now I love this, but it looks like a lot of vegetables, not a vegetable garden. So I am stumped. I could try to design my own applique quilt, I definitely don't know how to design piecing patterns. Well heck I don't know how to design applique quilts either! I could also do an applique quilt that basically incorporates elements of, for example Susan Powell's Victory Garden Pattern, available on the Glorious Color website.
I love the applique blocks (I would use VERY different colors!), and I could maybe set them in between something more vegetabley than sunflowers and grapes (like bean pole or pea stalk or a tall tomato plant...there would also be no angels in mine!)
But I did already buy both the pieced vegetables and Garden Patch patterns, so maybe I should use those instead of buying a whole additional pattern? I just don't know what to do!
