Mae's Garden by Elisa Woods

Plant nurseries were jam packed this weekend with people buying new plants for their yards and gardens. If you don’t have a green thumb but love plants, this week’s featured quilt is for you.

The featured quilt of the week is called Mae’s Garden by quilter Elisa Woods. The pattern is called Blooming Nine Patch. The pattern makes an amazing quilt so long as you choose your fabrics carefully.

You can see more of Elisa’s work at the 2012 Atlanta Quilt Festival opening July 29, 2012 at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA.

Meanwhile, this quilt should get you in a spring time mood.

The featured quilt of the weekn in the April 18, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Mae’s Garden, and it was created by Elisa Woods. Sometimes we doubt that something beautiful can be made from the simplest of things. Mae’s Garden is proof that often simple is best.

Mae’s Garden is made up entirely of nine patch blocks, one of the simplest of all quilt blocks and one of the first blocks learned by beginner quilters. The pattern for the quilt is called blooming nine-patch, and by adding a clever layout to beautiful fabrics, a striking work of art is born.
 
Elisa made this quilt for her Aunt Mae. According to Elisa, her Aunt Mae makes the best homemade ice cream in the world. We haven’t met Aunt Mae, but we know she has to be special to deserve such a beautiful quilt.
