One of the great things about the Quilting in the Garden show last weekend...
was being at the nursery itself!
But aside from playing...
I had to get busy with my Spider blocks for my retreat coming up next month.
It's just a few weeks away and a Spider Web string quilt is
one of the projects!
So I am starting on my sample.
I really have a hard time with "string" quilts...
And in order to keep myself from going insane I decided to
have a controlled pallet for my quilt.
Although I really like the opportunity that this blocks gives you for using up your scraps...
I just need to have an order to my kayos. If that makes sense?
I finally got my first Betsy's Closet block made and have the next one
in the hoop! I try to work on it during my lunch hour during the week, but
I think I need a new plan... because I need to get these done much faster...
some people have like 5 out of the 9 done already!
Okay, back to the nursery...
I love flowers!
Did I ever tell you that I use to work as a florist when I was younger?
It was so much fun.
That is the time period when I wore vintage clothes and yes, hats too!
Here is a fun quilt at In Between Stitches Quilt shop in Livermore.
I believe the pattern is from Anaka's Treasures, Living Large II booklet.
okay, just a little more eye candy...
