Welcome to the Garden Party Row Along Blog Hop

 Thanks to Marian at Seams to Be Sew who is the organizer behind this blog hop. This is my second year designing a row, this year's theme is a garden party.

Northcott Fabrics generously sponsors the row along, providing each of us designers with up to 1 yard of fabric.

Once we knew that the theme was going to be a Garden row.  I knew I would be making some kind of flower for my row, deciding what that flower would look like was the hard part. You see I love flowers, roses are my favourite. However, like most gardeners, I have a love for all flowers.

There is a little bit of small piecing in the blooms, these are 1 3/4'' by 1 3/4''. But I know you can do it.

Terrific block! Thank you so much, even with small pieces. =)

Needled Mom said...

I’m not a happy camper with the new changes either. BUT.....I love your row! Love the colors and your fabric choices. Of course yellow and green in a quilt are my favorite colors.

Jackie said...

What a beautiful row! Thank you!

I really like fall colors. I use them more than any other combination.

Denise said...

Wonderful row.

works4me said...

What a fun block. Thank you. I love using brights in my quilts, no specific colour.

Brenda @ Songbird Designs said...

This block is so cute! I love the way you made the blooms. Thanks for sharing!

Janet said...

I love the flowers! They are just bright and fun. Thank you!

Janet said...

Oops! I forgot to tell you my favorite colors for quilting. All of them! lol

Von said...

Love love love these flowers!

Unknown said...

Thanks for the great pattern

Quiltsmiles said...

So much details in your beautiful row of flowers that's its hard to imagine so many seams in that (9" x 18") area. Thanks for your pattern as well as your generosity. Stay well.

Lori said...

Thank you for this wonderful and happy row. This will be fun to make.

Emily said...

Such a pretty flower! Thank you! I really like purple and blue together. And purple and pink. And purple and green. Or all 4 of those together!

Susan L. said...

What a clever design! I love most colors, so it's hard to pick a favorite one. I think the only color I maybe use most is actually white.

Beth said...

What a great question! I love to combine red with blue, or plum with orangey-gold. Deep gray with purple. So many combinations. This must be why my quilts all look very different--I'm no "Bonnie and Camille", with a distinct look you can pick out at a mile, which I sometimes almost regret, but I think really reflects who I am.

piecefulwendy said...

Fun to see a post from you in my inbox, and I love your row of flowers!

Dix in Canada said...

I love how you created your flower garden! Thank you for the pattern too!

Michele T said...

Sorry to add another comment but I did not see the Rafflecopter until it was too late.... so, at the moment I love hot pink and bright orange or colour combination.

Rochelle aka Bella Quilts said...

I love black and red with a touch of white in a quilt. Can be good for either a man or woman. Thank you for a lovely pattern that will be bright and cheerful everywhere. Thanks too to the wonderful sponsors.

Carol McWhorter said...

This is such a creative block! Thanks so much for participating and offering this to us during the row along. I'm looking forward to making it. And BTW, roses are my favorite flower as well.

All colors are my favorite! I like to change color themes from project to project and not get stuck in one theme.

Patti said...

Cute! Thank you.

nancy c said...

favorite colors to use are gray and red. Thanks for the wonderful row :) your flowers are so bright and sunny! Like you I love all flowers. I have tried to grow roses, but have not had much luck. I do better with daisies and Iris.

Ohhhh...those bright and cheery blooms have me squealing in delight. What a great addition to the garden!

Delaine said...

I am really enjoying this blog hop! My favorite colors to combine change every once in a while. Currently, they are cream and either blue or purple. Thanks!

Danni N said...

Such cute flowers! I don't have a particular combination of colors I prefer; it depends on the pattern. What I love for one quilt, I wouldn't even consider for another!

Carol Andrews said...

What a great flower block; so bright and cheerful! I love your colours. Normally I seem to use purple in all my quilts, but the Covid shut down has me hooked on teal; teal with brown, teal with purple and blue, teal with black and white, teal with any colours! 😄

Sandra Walker said...

I absolutely love the row you created Cindy! Such a cool flower block. I love the Black-eyed Susan peeking over the top of the row. I just planted one this year in a new bed, a volunteer in our neighbours' lawn (I got their permission). You know I love blue and green. ;-)

Susan said...

I love your block. My favorite of the day. However, I am having trouble getting it. When I click on the link, I get the following:

"Error (500)
Something went wrong. Don't worry, your files are still safe and the Dropboxers have been notified. Check out our Help Center and forums for help, or head back to home."

Can you help me out here?

Orla V said...

Such a wonderful block, the effect is stunning, it never would have occurred to me that those small edges in different colours make such a difference to what could have been a normal flower block. I love it - thank you so much.

shobs said...

Looks lovely. All the patterns are going to make a great quilt.

Sharon said...

What a cute flower row! Thank you for sharing.

jbsews said...

You have created such a beautiful row. I really love to use yellow and blues in my quilts.

Marian said...

Heya Cindy, so nice to see you again this year and thank you so much for participating. This is also one of my favorites this year. I hope to make this at some point and love how unique the flower pattern is. The color values are perfect also, there's just nothing I can say that I don't love about this pattern, it's all great.

Pamela said...

Your flowers are just lovely and so original! My favorite colors to combine are blue and yellow.

Kathy said...

I love your row. I also am not a fan of the new blogger, but I am learning. Thank you for the free pattern.

Dione Gardner-Stephen said...

I love your flower pattern. These remind me of the marigolds I used to grow when I was little. Thanks for the pattern, much appreciated.
