Yvette's Garden Pattern includes 2 sizes: Large Lap Size: 65” x 65”
Throw Size: 65” x 85”
It is made with large blocks that finish at 14 inches making it big, bold, beautiful, and a fast make! It comes with a colorsheet and a custom paper template for the Dresden blades.
I love that it can look like flowers, sunflowers, and shells depending on the color way you choose! Yvette loved mermaids and her mother called Yvette, her Sunflower!
The FREE Workshop will be recorded and shared publicly on my Blog to assist every quilter with making the quarter Dresden block (including how to use the included paper template!). Its easier than you might think if you've never made a Dresden before!
I'd like to tell you about my friend, Yvette, who this pattern is named after. She was a dedicated nurse for 7 years with a husband and 2 beautiful daughters. She was one of those extraordinary people that made you feel welcome and seen within minutes of meeting her. She was also my twin sister's best friend and I am so glad she had a friend like Yvette!
In 2020, when the pandemic was at its height in New York City she volunteered to fight on the front lines. This past December 2021, while in the hospital to give birth to her second daughter, Yvette caught COVID. It developed into COVID pneumonia and did irreparable damage to her lungs and heart. Yvette fought for 7 months, but did not make it home to her family and new born daughter.
I can not imagine the emotional pain along with the financial burden, but I wanted to help.
So, designed a pattern to celebrate Yvette. Yvette's Garden! I have been slowly designing a series of Garden Quilts and it seemed like a perfect addition! All proceeds from this pattern will go to Yvette’s Biggerstaff’s Family.
