All of the reds were Mrs. Miller blues. All of the lights and blues were recolored from many different past collections. It would kinda be fun to have a questionnaire to see if you can identify what collections they all came from.
Wondering why I named the collection Bess' Flower Garden?
If you made my Mrs. Miller's Apprentice quilt, you know it comes with a diary telling the story about Mrs. Miller and her apprentice. Mrs. Miller's name in the story (and the real Mrs. Miller's name) is Elizabeth. Because I recolored so many of those prints, and Bess is a nick name for Elizabeth, I came up with Bess' Flower Garden.
Nomenclature is often a very difficult thing. Sometimes the names come easily and sometimes you wrack your brain for an idea....any idea!!! Bess was easy....and I think it's such a lovely collection of prints and colors. I had such fun choosing prints and seeing them recolored from their original version.
I've designed two new quilts using Bess' Flower Garden and will reveal them in the coming weeks. They're being pieced now.
Bess will be delivered to your local quilt shop the first of March...so not long from now! Please ask for it at your local shop .....support your local quilt shop! We love them and they need our business!!
If and only if you can't find Bess at your local shop, I will have fat quarter bundles, yardage and kits for the two quilts. So...stay tuned.
In the meantime....Happy Stitches and be well.
