April Showers


Several years ago, Linda Brannock designed this wonderful BOM.  I started it when I worked at the Liberty Quilt Shop, it made its way into a box, and of course it became another UFO.  It has always been one of my favorite primitive quilts, don't know why it never got finished. Linda said that she had always wanted a flower garden so that she could go out and pick a boquet of fresh cut flowers anytime.  I have visited her garden a few times, and it is amazing!  My hope is to have a yard full of flowers someday, too.  It is a work in progess, just like this quilt! Hopefully it will be completed sometime this summer.
I had more pics to upload, but blogger would not cooperate...oh well!

I love works in progress. It is so fun to go back, visit something you once were so passionate about, work on it some more and eventually finish it. I have some things in boxes or closets for a loooonnngg time before they finally reach the quilting stage.

Wow, you worked at Liberty Quilt Shop? That was on my to-do list some day ... until she closed. But I am glad you kept the BOM and are working on it. Just love Linda's work! and yours!

Carol said...

Oh I loved Liberty Quilt Shop! That was a wonderful, wonderful shop. I have that BOM too...still in the nice packages from Liberty...I should work on that again...I love it...thanks for the reminder.

A floral quilt is better for me since the deer seem to love the flowers I try and grow outside!
Your quilt blocks are lovely!

I always dreamed of visiting Liberty Quilt Shop but never got there. I ordered loads from them by mail and got that same BOM from them. The top has been finished for years but it still needs to be quilted. It's one of my favorite primitive quilts too and I'm afraid machine quilting it would ruin it but know I'll never get around to hand quilting it. I think I need to just finish it!

That's a really nice quilt. I hope you continue with it.

Hi Sharon,
These quilt blocks are just beautiful! I have so many projects tucked away as well and hope to someday learn to really quilt, but I know that would just be another pile waiting for me to find and finish!!
It is so nice to meet you and thank you for following my blog! I look forward to following yours as well!!
Blessings~~
Julie

Oh I love your flower blocks!

Marsha said...

Well, I don't have that BOM, but I do have plenty of others from LQS, that need to be finished/started!! LOL
I love that quilt and am happy you are working on it!

Karen said...

Oh, how I love these blocks. Did Linda publish the patterns?

Wendy said...

It's going to be a beautiful garden quilt. Your blocks are fantastic.

Such a wonderful UFO to pull out of a box. Most of my UFOs bore me to tears when I look at them. This one will be well worth your time and effort. Do you know if these BOM patterns ever made their way into a book or a packet for sale?

I just recently turned a UFO into a WIP - doesn't feel good? The blocks are fantastic!!
