Country Garden bed runner

  Done!   The Country Garden bed runner was finished off with a mottled purple binding.  Since the blocks and floral fabrics used were on the lighter side of the spectrum, it seemed to work.

  This runner is a good study in contrasts.  some of the combinations are very high contrast of light and dark, and others are less so with both fabrics tending to the light. 













 The Country Garden  is a mix of every sort of bloom, and leaves run the gamut from green to blue-green to a taupe-lavender.  It's my garden and I made it a fun one.   I see sunshine in the light backgrounds  and blooming roses and daffodils.   If you study it closely you might find the weeds I never got to pull :)













   Quite a contrast between the two....you can see why I had a challenge getting them to work nicely together in one quilt. 






     The blocks are 16 patch made with 2 '' strips.  I used 3 blocks across and 10 blocks for the length.  The post for the Shade Garden is here.
 

  The tale of two gardens comes to  an end.   I have two runners for bed or table.....to switch out with the season or mood.  It just will depend on the story I want to tell. 
Happy stitching.

They are both very pretty and I'm sure they only made a small dent in your floral stash.

So pretty, and a good decision separating these blocks into two distinct runners. I'm in the mood for daffodils and roses about this time of year!

It is gorgeous! I am glad you have them side by side - I would have never guessed that much contrast. They are both beautiful. ~Jeanne

Oh, I feel the garden on a January day! Sunshine and colors, ahhhh. The quilt they are sitting on is quite lovely and mellow.

Each one is beautiful, but I particularly partial to the shade garden.
You have such a good eye for this type of design. Did it come fairly naturally to you, or do you feel it has developed over time?

Very pretty! The greens are so appealing right now when nature is sleeping.

Both pieces are lovely! Because they are long and skinny, they feel like paths thru the two parts of the garden.

Beautiful! And keeping it real--every garden has some weeds! ;-)
