Reading Time

Once again I had a blast picking fabrics to piece together this month's Garden Block from designer Janeen of Quilt Art Designs Garden BOM. This one didn't have any of the signature low volume that I have been including each month as the background of these blocks. I could have elected to put it in where the cobble stone path is but it just didn't seem right this month.  The girl in the garden is completed surrounded by the garden and that is how I decided this block should be.  I envision I will place her in the center with the rest of my blocks surrounding her. 

I thought the hammock would be an ideal place to feature a little low volume this month and I love the compass/ruler green fabric that I used as the lawn.  Such a beautiful sunny day in the garden spent reading a favorite novel looks like a fantastic way to relax.  The block may look a little wonky on the left but it isn't.  I just need to starch it up a bit so it lays down better.  I was just super anxious to share how my reading girl turned out!

I'll be linking this up over at Kristy's Quiet Play Linky Party.

Keep Stitchin'
