Desire to Inspire - The February Challenger makes Pilar's Garden



Hi, I am Angie Ligon.  I was born and raised in the Midwest, I currently live in the Kansas City Metro Area. My family and I are big sports fans and love going to Royals and Chiefs games whenever possible.  I have been sewing as long as I can remember.  

My mom made a lot of our clothes growing up so my sisters and I all started with garment sewing but have now all transitioned over to quilting. I made my first baby blanket 33 years ago when my first child was born and have been going strong since then.  I have recently discovered applique and find myself gravitating to that technique with the majority of my projects now. I really love the design aspect and design most of my projects myself.

Here is the project that I made with Anni Downs Hatched and Patched collection. It is a pattern called Pilar's Garden that I created. 




Here is each block seperately: 





Each corner has this darling pinwheel: 


Please leave a comment below for Angie and her awesome job as February's Desire to Inspire Challenger!

Adorable! I have yet to master applique and yours is certainly an inspiration for me to get to it and keep trying. Thanks for sharing, especially the close ups of each block. :-)
