CAH3556 Twilight Garden Block of the Month Block 8 Dianthus by Meg Hawkey from Crabapple Hill Studio
That gentle twilight in the garden, when the light is low and everything is slightly blue. The birds settle down for the evening and sing their sleepy, evening songs. This quilt brings that calm, soft feel. The piecing is simple and within the reach of any beginner. The embroidery has a smattering of more advanced stitching, but is for the most part, very easy and quick. The tinting just brings the entire thing alive… in a sleepy kind of way!
Dianthus, more commonly known as Pinks, are some of my favorite flowers. Not matter how fancy or beautiful a flower is, it loses something very important if it doesn't smell good! Pinks are a simple flower with a scent that reminds me of cinnamon or cloves… sweet and spicy. They tend to be very fragrant in the early evening after the sun has been on them all day… a lovely time to be in the garden!
