Inspired by Aunt Millie’s Garden

Brenda Godin, Innisfil, ON

Dimensions: 81" x 88"

Techniques: Pieced, longarm-quilted, hand appliqué

Artist’s Statement:
This was a two-year project with my appliqué group, using the pattern, Aunt Millie’s Garden from Piece o’ Cake Designs. The background fabric is Robert Kaufman’s “Fusions®.” The batiks for appliqué started with a bundle of Tonga Hard Candy®. I incorporated square nuggets of the batiks from the flowers in the sashing and the large buttons replaced the pinwheel in the centre of the blocks from the original pattern design. Elite Quilting, Barrie, Ontario did the masterful quilting.
