Garden Wall Quilt

I've started a new quilt and I'm going to keep this one! I absolutely LOVE Anna Maria Horner's new Garden Party Fabric. There is a free pattern for the Garden Wall quilt on her site. The center is made of 9 blocks...each composed of many smaller blocks. I used approximately 13 fat quarters, all from the Garden Party collection. I should have done some basic math before I got started. I'm glad I didn't though because if I had I would have figured out that I had to cut 459 little squares and rectangles and that may have changed my mind. Block one is complete. The biggest obstacle is keeping all the pieces straight. I have all these little piles all over my desk. I think it's worth it though. Here's a picture of the first block.

Isn't it pretty? Looks like Miss L is exhausted too from all this cutting and piecing!
