Garden Boot

I had to stay up till I finished this block tonight. This pattern has been in the works for a few weeks now. It took me awhile to figure out how to break my design up into a somewhat manageable pattern. I do realize that this garden boot, the third block in my gardening series, has a crazy number of pieces but I wanted the shape, the strap detail, the treads. It wasn’t difficult to assemble but there were a lot of little sections to piece together. Fortunately, many of them didn’t have seams to match. The boot is pieced with “Party in Pink” by Henry Glass. I got it from Quilted Treasures on Etsy and I think it makes for the perfect gardening boot material! And best of all, it has touches of bright yellow allowing me to incorporate some Kumiko Fujita Text Print in Yellow from Ayumi. I fussy cut “busy Spring” for the boot strap. The detailing at the top of the boot is Heath in Pink from Sew Fresh Fabrics. And finally, the treads are made from a charcoal cross weave.

The pattern is not ready yet but should be ready in a few more days. I just had to share it with you because I was excited!
