Dorothy’s Garden Girls Quilt

My friend Ellie invited  me to join another quilt group, the Sew Sisters.  It is a wonderful  group of women with a passion for quilting.  We have been meeting in the evenings, and since I didn’t want to lug my machine around, I decided to start a Dorothy’s Garden Girls Quilt, and work on the embroideries there.  These blocks are fun to put together, and just the vintage style that I am into right now.  The pattern I used is from a book called “Threads from the ’30s”.  Here are the first two blocks I completed:
