I am tickled pink to be part of
the Abstract Garden frenzy with Benartex! Because Holy Yummy Colorful Goodness! Also? How cool is it that this is happening Valentine’s week and the Benartex blog is called Sew in Love with Fabric?
When Christa told me her inspiration for designing Abstract Garden was so that she could get
something to grow, I knew I had to create a flower explosion to show off just how much it could! And with her retro vibe it had to be a garden of yo-yos!
Meet Mod Garden! Christa’s unique sense of clean graphics and rich, bright, saturated colors just makes me happy. Super cheerful, every time.

This fun little pillow
went all the way to Houston and hung out with Christa in the Benartex booth for Fall Quilt Market 2018. I wasn’t there, but some friends swung by to get a glamour shot.
If you’ve never made yo-yos before, get ready to fall in love with one of the easiest, most portable sewing projects possible. Wanna make your own Mod Garden?
Check out the photo-illustrated tutorial!
But I couldn’t stop there. I had to make a mini version of
my Churned Up pattern with Abstract Garden… (would that be a “tilled up garden”? Oh, stop, Tara.)
And because this post drops on Valentine’s Day, and I had a little more fabric leftover… I
had to make something with hearts out of Abstract Garden, too, didn’t I?!?
Meet the Heart Happy pillow!
