Summer of Sewing - Introducing the 'English Country Garden' Quilt
Welcome along to the 2023 British Sew a Row sew along info page.
In this blog post I will outline the different blocks, key dates, where to get patterns and all the different designers that are contributing.
Meet the English Country Garden quilt
There are 4 different sets of blocks created by different British designers.
There is a mix of techniques in this quilt including traditional piecing, applique as well as FPP.
We were given some beautiful Liberty prints to make this quilt and Vlieseline gifted the batting (80/20 cotton!)
Below is a list of the different block collections, their names, and the designers.
