I wonder if someone can help me with a quilt using the flower garden as the basic

design alon with a robin perched on the fence (as seen on quilting arts series 801).

Please give me some ideas as to how I could begin this quilt.

hi leela

a couple of questions - how big is the quilt gonna be ?

are you planning on dimensional,  or entirely flat ?

when you say flower garden - does that mean a traditional grandmothers flower garden blocks (hexagons) as the background?  or a more realistic landscape type effect ?

the final size of the quilt will determine how much detail you can put into it ; and will partially determine your construction methods.  a larger quilt will let you get more detail into it. it also makes it easier to do dimensional flowers - if that is part of the plan.
