The Secret Garden - Designed and Quilted by Tara Hovis

Tara Hovis
From Tara: "The flowers in my design were fussy cut from an Amy Butler fabric. The sashing around each flower with the cornerstones offset is representative of a 'lock.' This wall hanging actually started as a 'what if…' project. The plan originally was to set the blocks side by side, but it looked funny with the cornerstones offset. I added the 1/4" sashing as a small spacer as well as to give the quilt more color. The piece is quilted with variegated threads around each flower and the sashing and border are quilted with free motion lines and loops. I used a two-color binding to add a little "pop" of color around the edges."
