It's a Garden Party Row Along


A big thanks to Marian for bringing us another great Row Along! 
Here's a list of today's participants:
---------------------------------

This year's theme is, obviously, gardens/gardening. I decided to focus on the things needed to get a garden started/planted. My row measures 12.5" x 30.5" including outside seam allowance, and consists of eleven blocks.

The first, and biggest block, is the wheelbarrow. It measures 6.5" x 12.5" including seam allowance. It will be the centerpiece of the row.

Above the wheelbarrow are a glove and a spade. They each measure 3.5" x 6.5" including seam allowances.

Below the wheelbarrow are another glove and a fork. They each measure 3.5" x 6.5" including seam allowances.

On the left side of the row is a long-handled spade block. It measures 3.5" x 12.5" including seam allowance.

To the right of the spade block, are a watering can block and seedlings block. They each measure 6.5" x 6.5" including seam allowances.

On the right side of the row is a shovel block. It measures 3.5" x 12.5" including seam allowance.

To the left of the shovel block, are another seedlings block and a hat block. They each measure 6.5" x 6.5" including seam allowances.

And here's an illustration of the finished row with all the blocks in their spots:

  3. Heya Elizabeth. This is such a great row, imagine you can use it as a row, a sampler, or even break it up and use it for filler areas. So clever and so fun!! I love samplers and that's exactly what I see with this great row. Thank you for creating such a fun, and wonderful row for all of us to enjoy. I am also wishing to thank you for once again joining me in doing the row along this year.
