Mary Lee's Garden

Mary Lee's Red Posey

Mary Lee Sparks is the youngest member of our group and the newest to quilting. After being impressed with one of her first quilts, I asked her to join us so that she would be exposed to the talented quilters in this group and therefore increase her skills.

Mary Lee originally planned to make a green Irish Chain around her 6" appliquéd blocks, but as the quilt developed she modified that idea. Take a close look at the clever way she made her outer 9 patches so that they form their own border. She says all quilts should have some red so notice it "sewn" throughout her garden.

Take a look at what Mary Lee has planted in her garden.
