After the long haul of getting some quilts quilted, I needed to play. I dumped the tote of my CW small bits and strings to catch up on the Temecula Quilt Co Sampler.
Friday's post was to make 5 crazy quilt style blocks, but I used those bits to make these to add to that growing pile of 4.5" blocks.
As long as I had those bits out, I started the Kim Diehl 'Snowball Blossoms' mini - that print out has been hanging on the wall for a very long time. This is a free Henry Glass pattern found HERE. This is the center that needs some very tiny applique leaves and berries added before the rest of the pieced borders. Maybe I will use up those bits from the tote?
After that bit of stitching, I took a walk in this lovely weather we are having. This is our 100+ yr old rose bush in full bloom. It's the only plant left from the original flower garden on this old farm.
And I am thrilled that the apple tree is full of little green orbs! I think we might just get a bumper crop this year.
The two 'kids' followed me around, but they were more interested in the chipmonks running back and forth to the bird feeder on the side of the house.
Today I will play with these stripes, plaids, and shirting from that tote. Just a random patch work baby quilt should use most of this up.
I've had this vintage piece of John Deere on the shelf for a couple of years - time to use it and it will be the backing for this patch work quilt.
Of course, I have bindings to work on now. I'll work a length of thread and then chain some patches - rinse and repeat. It's to be very hot and humid, so the AC may just run today while I stay indoors to play.
