More From Clara's Garden


KT Winner

Congrats to Allison! You're the winner of last weeks blog giveaway.
  1. My favorite flowers in my garden are the coneflowers. I have over a dozen different kinds and they are all beautiful in their own unique ways. I love the lap quilt! Clara must have been an amazing woman.

Clara's Garden 

If you prefer piecing over applique, this is the project for you. All the blocks are simply 9-patches layered with our wedges cut from a Jelly Roll. This time, we placed them randomly for a scrappier, less planned look. What a great quilt for a wedding or anniversary - rings without the stress! Project included in Clara's Garden booklet (retail $10.95). I also created a wedge template for easier cutting (KT Wedge Template $7.95).


Clara's Raised Bed Garden 72" x 82"

Here's the perfect little table topper using just one of the Clara's Garden blocks. A single 9-patch plus 8 of the layered wedges in the same print make this circular project easy to whip up in just about 3 hours!

Somehow this didn't post last week as expected. I admit I was laying on the beach in Florida while typing, but it looked like it had posted. Sorry I can't send a bit of warm sunshine to each of you. Instead, if you comment here, I'll share a Clara's Garden booklet with the projects above plus last week's and a Jelly Roll to get you started.

I'll be home thru the holidays so watch for more Clara's Garden inspiration next week and our annual 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway in December. So much fun stuff to win!

  5. We are on our way home from a week on the beach - not a very warm beach either - temps were 20 degrees cooler than normal. Brrr. Of course that's still warmer than it is back home in Illinois. Ha!

  51. Lynne I love your fabrics and patterns. Yours were the first pre-cuts I ever bought, two jelly rolls and a honeybun to be made into your quilt patterns! As I write this I'm awaiting the arrival of your Layers of Love book and Hexagon template ruler from my Black Friday shopping spree online! I love to make quilt blocks into pillows for my home and my kids college apartments. Thanks for sharing your talents and time with us.
