Good Friday - A Day to Plant

Give Yourself a Flower Garden, 58 X 58 inch hand appliqued quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2016. Custom quilted by Regina Carter. Pattern by the Rabbit Factory. NFS.

I am no farmer. I am actually a plant murderer, but for as long as I can remember, I have heard those who know say the spring planting season starts on Good Friday. So today I will begin again and add some new flowers to my backyard garden.

My quilt Give Yourself a Flower Garden helped me to perfect my applique stitch. It was created from a block of the month program. I love block of the month programs for long term projects because you learn new things without getting overwhelmed. You can't start the next block until it arrives in the mail. The fabrics are muted batiks placed on a brown background which I love.

Wish me luck on my 2024 flower garden!
