Garden in the Round By Marla Whalen
I had some Winding Ways templates for a while before I tackled this design, which I also learned to draw in a class with Patti Anderson. It features remnants of mostly Lakehouse fabrics, again purchased on that trip to Hancock’s of Paducah. The top was completed for quite a while before I decided how I would quilt it, including the floral motifs in the alternate blocks. I didn’t think it was my best work, but entered it into a contest anyway…which was a good decision, because it got noticed and will be in an upcoming issue of American Quilter.
