Twilight Garden Quilts—a new Pattern Pack with a giveaway!

Spring Flower Heart

Award-winning author Deborah Kemball is back with even more reasons to love floral appliqué…Twilight Garden Quilts.

This newest addition to our Pattern Pack series is packed with elegant, flowing flower patterns that you can appliqué however you like – by hand, by machine, raw edge, or needle-turn. The packet contains a booklet of basic instructions and tips from Deborah, plus individual full-size patterns for 22 flowers that each make a gorgeous 12″ quilt block.

Also included are instructions for these two quilt projects—her Spring Flower Heart quilt above won first place for handquilted wall quilts at the 2011 AQS show in Knoxville, and her Midnight Garden quilt below has won multiple awards, including first place for handquilted wall quilts at the 2011 AQS show in Lancaster. Click here to read Deborah’s blog post about these two quilts.

If you love asters, daisies, narcissus, pansies, buttercups, forget-me-nots…you will love this pattern pack! Watch Deborah’s interview with Alex Anderson last spring on The Quilt Show blog, where she discusses her first book, Beautiful Botanicals and shows off lots of her beautiful work.

    I love oriental lilies for fragrance, lupines for their majestic spires and the leaves that capture dew and raindrops.

    Quilters are always looking for permanent fabric pens that do not bleed. Maybe more of us will make labels for our quilts!

    For a twilight garden – my favorite flower would be a white flower. I had a moonlight garden a few year ago. One of my favorites was the Moon Flower. The seeds are really big – you soak them and scratch them before planting. They grow fast into a vine. The blooms open at night and are very large, white and very fragrant… they bloom open pretty fast – you can almost watch them pop open if you catch it just right.
    Love the book.
