Painter's Garden , Another Sneak Peak

So I think I mentioned that I cut out TWO Painter's Garden quilts.  Why two? Well, any of you who have sewn one of my block of the month quilts, know that for some programs I like to offer you options. Getting to Know Hue had three background options to choose from. Amish with a Twist: Series III had both pieced and applique options, as did Color Love. So, here's the deal--Painter's Garden will have both pieced and applique' options to choose from. But the best part is that the fabric kit is the same for both--same fabrics, same yardage requirements. Isn't that great? You don't have to make a final decision until you start cutting out your first block. 

The other option you have is that you can use traditional cuting methods or you can use the GO! Cutting systems 8"Qube, plus some other dies to cut out your quilt. Yes, you can use dies to cut out the applique' too! Or--you can order laser cut applique' sets through your local quilt shop. 


Here's my EQ renderings of both quilts. They are looking fantastic in the actual fabric! Check back here and on Instagram for more updates.
