Let's Get Quilting - 7 pc Pretty as a Pansy bundle by Jane Shasky of Jane's Garden




Happy Spring! It's time to plant! Of course Pansies are the colorful flower with the 'faces'. They are lovely for an indoor garden and even more delightful in your outside garden.  In the language of flowers, they are the language of 'thoughts' and did you know they are also edible? So you can decorate your table with a lovely Pretty as a Pansy table runner, and your plate with pretty pansies!


This quilt was made by Mary Furber in our January Desire to Inspire Challenge with the collection

I'm planting a small garden and quilting and sewing.

I will be doing both, especially since we have had nothing but rain up here in the northwest. But, things sure are green :)

Gardening during the day, quilting in the evenings! Best of both worlds!!

Joanna said...

Definitely both, but more sewing than planting. Lovely pansies.

Michele T said...

I plan on doing both!!! Love to garden but quilting is my greatest passion ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Lisa Marie said...

I won't have a garden, the deer would eat everything if I did. I'd rather spend my time making things from fabric!

minibea12 said...

I will be busy with both! I love my flowers and my sewing!

Vicki H said...

I have several large flower beds and also volunteer at our local Botanical garden. I will also sew as time allows.

scottylover said...

Quilting for me! I am not a gardener at all!

Barb Neiwert said...

No need to plant a garden - the deer and rabbits would eat it all! I do tend the perennial flowerbeds though. And quilt!

Nancy said...

My husband does the gardening, I'll sew and crochet!

Angie&Gary Short said...

I'm looking forward to quilting! I'm also looking forward to working or playing rather, in my flower garden! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

janice said...

I love gardening almost as much as quilting!

Kristine said...

I am in an apartment so gardening isn't an option but quilting is at the top of my agenda!

Joyce Carter said...

Quilting and sewing will be on my agenda. Thank you for the giveaway.

Mary Pat Proctor said...

Cute fabric! Thanks for the contest!

Beth said...

Both. More quilting now, while it's still rainy and cold here. More gardening once the sun returns, around July. Gotta love Oregon. :)

teachpany said...

I've added some flowers to our garden so far, and will add more as the season gets warmer. I did use pansies, though. I plan another rose bush, a crepe myrtle tree, and petunias and hanging baskets. This collection is so pretty.

Jo Anne Hawks said...

Lovely pansy fabric in my favorite colors.

Janet Sabol said...

I'm definitely sewing and quilting! We also enjoy having garden produce. My husband usually does the veggies and I plant the flower gardens and try to leave plenty of time for sewing. Pansies are my favorite flowers back from when I was in a sorority and that was their flower, too.

Pamela said...

Sewing and quilting! And getting my vegetables at the farmer's market!

Helen L said...

Planting as little as possible (tomatoes), and hoping to quilt! I love Jane's artwork!! I have a recipe book with her illustrations and just love it! Thanks for the chance to win the gorgeous fabric!! Hugs, H

GranChris said...

We always plant a big garden. Can a lot of stuff for the Winter. Lots of sewing in the afternoon and evening.

VickiT said...

I would love to plant a garden, although I haven't been able to for a number of years because of my health. A few years ago, I did purchase a planter that does allow us to plant a row of tomatoes (or whatever else we'd like I suppose). They offer a separate purchase of a stand you can purchase which elevates this planter box so that you don't have to get down to ground level to plant or harvest from it. I think it's something I need to get in time for next year. Sewing and quilting however, I will be doing this summer.

Vicki in MN said...

Lots of quilting with a 'little' garden this year.

Miriam said...

If I depended on my garden for food, I'd starve. I prefer wild flowers with abandon, although I try to grow tomatoes, and there are wild blackberries everywhere. My passion is quilting, and my daughter's favorite flowers are pansies.

mangozz said...

Quilting and sewing instead.

Janie said...

Last fall I planted 625 bulbs. My yard is lovely. This year I am planning to plant an herb garden on my screened in porch. Lovely collection thank you!

Cheryl Hammond said...

Lots of quilting & Spring planting in my turtle garden!!

Sheila said...

Both! Love the fabrics in this line.

June Smith said...

Beautiful fabrics!

BJM said...

I'll plant a few things, but not a big garden. I'll be sewing, probably not quilting.

Lori said...

I am planning on sewing this summer. I have a baby quilt to make and a toddler apron and starting Christmas gifts. My husband will be putting in a vegetable garden. Of course I help him by watering. But really it is his thing.

Cathy Calloway said...

Hoping for a bit of one, a lot of the other! Thanks!!

JANET said...

Hubby does the gardening, and he has some of the garden in already. I quilt when I can find time.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I will not plant a garden this year but will be working on my crafts.

MtnJudy said...

Pansies are a sure sign of spring!

Judy Maggio said...

I am planting a garden and quilting this summer. After working full-time and raising three children, I have practice at being Super Woman. There are a lot of us out here.

Denise Losczyk said...

Both! Helping my husband with gardening and sewing!

Love the sweet spring pansies, make a smile to your day. I love the little watering cans too. This would be so fun to sew up into a table runner and brighten the room.
Spring smiles, Sue

Lovely fabric - pansies my fav flower! Container gardening this year!!!

Diane Beavers said...

Flower beds yes, that will be the extent of my gardening. Quilting, and sewing always, espcially when I'm inside avoiding the pollen at this time of year and the humidity that our summers have here in July thru September. Thankyou for the Pansy bundle opportunity.

I definitely am planting a garden and probably quilting because you know it will rain when I want to weed.
