Ready to sew…….

I have had the circles appliqued on these blocks for over a week but hadn’t checked my photo and put them back on the design wall to prepare for sewing it together.  I will sew it today and then start appliqueing the circles on the other 9 blocks.

 I have tamed the back yard jungle a lot this year.  There are still weeds but they are short ones at this point.  I have been mowing around the bird feeders and mowed a path to my neighbor’s yard.  It is a natural bird sanctuary, not a formal garden by any means.  I’m just happy we have had so much rain this year and everything is staying green.

  1. We were to get rain last night and it didn't happen. Suppose to be a lot cooler the rest of the week. your blocks are looking really good. Anxious to see the final layout. Chris

  2. Your pairs of fabrics with the circles, lines, grids, and squiggles give great movement to each block. Love the final look.

    Sporadic but reliable rains here in Iowa this summer have kept everything green as well. Your informal bird sanctuary area looks like a relaxing oasis for humans, as well as critters.

  3. That is one dynamic pattern…. I am nearly tempted to make one!!! We are hot this week and humid… suppose to storm today and tomorrow.

  4. Love those blocks. I am working on “Garden Party” from Making Quilts. Your garden is lovely-we have had no rain at all but until this week has been cooler.

  5. Your summer photo's always make me smile. Each block looks like bright blooming flowers. I know stitching the circles takes time… but not for you. You always accomplish so much more than the average person, when it comes to your creativity.
