Garden Dreams Quilt Project #6

Three more squares to go! I’m feeling good about getting this done in time for the quilt show. Today’s square is #6 in placement on the quilt. I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but I wove two shades of blue ribbon and sewed them to the background underneath the poppy.

I’ve got two more flower squares to make … daffodil and butterfly bush. The center square will have a picture of my grandma in her flower garden and I don’t know what else yet. I never know what I’m going to put on a square until I start working on it. It’s just like my favorite music … I improvise, get in the groove and jam … with, of course, Phish or the Grateful Dead playing on the stereo.

Is this the first day of spring? Sure wouldn’t know it here in northern Illinois. I had to get my winter coat, hat and mittens back out to walk Marley today. What a let down after 75 degrees on Tuesday. But, at least it’s not below zero and snowing anymore!!

    Awesome lady! That is so cool!!! You are good, girl. I’m so looking forward to seeing some of your work up close and personal.

    By the way, I baked the Happy Ending Plum Cake and the Red and White cookies from that murder mystery I told you about. The cookies are very good. I’ll let you know what the cake tastes like when my Fellowship group cracks it open tonight.
    Love you,
    Lana
