Now on to my block.  Every garden needs a focus tree in my opinion, size doesn't matter as gardens can be tiny or they cn be huge. So that why I have created a tree which will be my centre block when I get around to creating my Garden quilt from the patterns collected..


This block is suitable for a quilter who has the basic skills as it only has half square triangles in it. You can find my pattern HERE.


I have the pleasure of having a Northcott Giveaway for everyone today. Northcott will send you a bundle from one of these in the picture below.  This is a worldwide giveaway - USA winners will wait until the Row Along ends for shipping to take place and USA winners will pay shipping cost.



a Rafflecopter giveaway

 You can find the rules for the Giveaways here.



Also Electric Quilt  has a special offer for everyone during the row along. They are offering a 20% off any products except for EQ Academy during the row along. The coupon code is: GARDENPARTY20. If you haven't got it yet this is the perfect opportunity to get it and receive the discount.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and I look forward to see what you do with the patterns you collect.
Until Next Time 
Keep Stitching
Cynthia.

I like your tree and think it would make a great addition to the Garden Party quilt, but for some reason the pattern is not available to me. I tried to get it twice, but both times I got the message that it doesn't exist. Nancy A: SewingGranda@gmail.com

Where will the birds go without a tree? This block is a great design, simple and serving as a focal point.

Caroline said...

Thank you for the Block, the link is incorrect though, although I did find the issue and get the Block successfully. Your link https://cynthiasark.blogspot.com/.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BzDRWIBf8eA7JWrM7QXtZcxw2B_plkd2/view?usp=sharing . It has too many addresses. This link worked https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BzDRWIBf8eA7JWrM7QXtZcxw2B_plkd2/view?usp=sharing

Thank you

Danni N said...

Nice, simple block. Thank you to Caroline for posting the correct link!

dbuggy1 said...

The link isn't working for me. It says the page doesn't exist. Can you give me a different link? Thanks so much for all the hard work you put into this pattern!

Michele-Marie said...

Hi Cynthia, I have tried time and again clicking on the word 'Here' but the link for your tree pattern just returns the following:
"Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist."
Can you help please??

Theresa said...

There should always be one tree but more the better. :)

A tree with flowers below it. All it needs is a bench and a book to make it a dream come true.
