A great scrap-busting pattern originally featured in Australian Homespun Magazine Issue 145.
Create this colorful and cheerful quilt while clearing out your scrap bins. Perfect for group activity quilts (collect leaf blocks from friends!). A portion of sales profit from this pattern will be donated to the B.C. Cancer Agency twice yearly.

The Cutting Garden quilt is a pattern that was designed somewhat collaboratively as a modification of another pattern called "Scrappy Sprouts" by Tracey Jacobson (for the full story, you can read this blog post). The original inspiration quilts were made for friends who'd been diagnosed with cancer, and when the editors of Australian magazine "Homespun" saw a photo of Krista's quilt online, they approached her to design a pattern for it with more flowers and a darker ground. The proceeds of the commission were donated to support cancer research in the spirit of the original quilts.
The pattern is available in the June 2015 issue of Homespun Magazine and as a PDF.
