Meet Ava's Garden - A New Quilt Pattern!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

My Friday Finish is a new quilt pattern - Ava's Garden!  This just might be my favorites of all of the patterns I've written.  

I love Churn Dash blocks and Irish Chains, so why not combine them and carry the chains through to the setting triangles?  :)  Don't worry - I've broken it all down into simple steps for you, and it goes together very quickly.  Did you notice that the backgrounds of the Irish Chains are made with two hues of the same color?

This quilt has been in the works since June, and is one of the many patterns I've been promising y'all.  I'm so happy to finally have all of my ducks in a row to show it to you!  

And here is a mockup in blues!  Oh my, this one thrills my little ♥, and I have plans to make it myself.  The fabric is in my sewing room just waiting its turn, and I can't wait to make it in queen size!

I love the churn dash block, and this pattern is so pretty. I've never thought to combine the two patterns, but it sure looks great together!

I have been looking at your patterns, and your sale is very tempting!

Its beautiful! I hosted a mystery similar to that pattern but not on point like that - I really like the way you set it ( ps I called mine a dash of chains ha ha!!! - Yours is much more original!)

What a great pattern. It looks so effective in both colourways. :-)
