We have the honor of being located in downtown Belmont, the quaint streets are lined with original restaurants, boutiques, ice cream shops (we used to have 4 in a two block radius!) and a very cool garden.
The garden rents out plots, and for a mere $60.00 you can partake in having your own garden plot as well as all the activities they do. Check out their Facebook page!
Because Grow Belmont is an not for profit association, they organize a fundraiser every year. Last year I kept saying that I was going to make a quilt for it, well you know how time gets away from you (or at least me...). So I was able to get this WIP off my list and give Grow Belmont a quilt for their fundraiser!
The fabric is Tend the Earth by Deb Strain, featuring a relaxed nature print. Leaves, damask, swirls and subtle colors was just perfect for this quilt!
Of course the quilting is one of our favorites, I think this quilt pattern is one of our most popular patterns right now!
Here's the backing, I had a few random blocks left but not enough to make a complete row for the top. I pieced them in the middle, I always find it quite satisfying when I can use all my blocks or better yet - not have any scraps left over from the project I'm working on!
I'm terrible at making quilt labels, really it just boils down to being quite lazy! I wanted to do something for this quilt, but not make it too personal. I embroidered this cool garden embroidery and added the year, this quilt is currently being raffled off. I hope it brings them money for many more years of harvest and keeps the person lucky enough to win it warm in those long, dark winter evenings.
