New Years Resolution

Pheonix Park Walled Garden
Finished pieced quilt top, ready for quilting.

New yrs resolution done! A piece in an exhibition. Sorry a bit late blogging about it!!The exhibition was run by the Eastern Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society. Held in Phoenix park visitor centre next to the walled garden. As soon as I heard the theme and location images of the beautiful walled garden came to mind. My husband and I often visit this garden during at all times of the year. Creating artwork and Gardening are my two passions. I love planting seeds, watching them grow and then getting to eat your produce! Yum!  I imagined the different vegetables that I would grow in each season. One for every season in raised beds surrounded by terracotta roped borders. 

Me and my entry.

I had never done foundation paper piecing before and when looked for a pattern I couldn’t find anything I liked. So I had to design my own, I don’t like the east life do I ? The fabric was a selection of stash fabric, fat quarters bought from green acre quilt shop and scraps left at the IPS Eastern Branch meeting. The 1st few designs did not go to plan. Spring onions looked more like cabbages and tomatoes like strawberries! But after a few attempts I got the hang of it!
