Garden View Test Pattern

On October 16th I was able to claim a finish for a Pattern Test that I did for The Quilt Pattern Magazine, an on line publication.

The pattern is “Garden View” by Barbara Gavlick Hartnett. This pattern is suitable for a beginner/intermediate or intermediate Quilter. The finished size is 68 1/2” x 84 1/2”.

For my fabric pull I chose the black with bright accents which did not have a selvedge edge, the gold/ orange from the Stonehenge Collection, a light blue Kona Cotton, and my treasured leftover jelly roll strips from Kaffe Fassett.

I was able to use my Accuquilt Cutter and dies for most of the cutting so it only took a couple of hours. I love using my Accuquilt products for the speed and accuracy when cutting.

In all there are 277 – 4 1/2” blocks used in this pattern. With life getting in my way it did take me two weeks (in between dealing with life and some other time sensitive projects needing attention first) to get all of the blocks pieced.

The colours sure made my heart happy!

Strip piecing was a definite way to go with this beauty!

Once the rows were assembled the top went together quickly.

This is my take on the Garden View quilt. It is a perfect pattern to do if you have a focal fabric that you want to fussy cut and if you aren’t already a subscriber to The Quilt Pattern Magazine you do have time to get it before the end of February for this pattern.

I love the 3D effect of this treasure

Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoyed this bright bit of colour today. 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. That is bright and cheerful and different. Your fabric choices were great for this one. I know I’ve seen that fabric, but I can’t remember where. Could it be a Hoffman?
