Remember all those wonderful fabrics we bought at the Crafty Planet? Here is the book we are working from.
We are both making the quilt called Wildflowers. The hexagon is machine pieced and the middle circle is hand appliqued. Here are some of Connie’s blocks – she’s working on the hand appliqué this weekend while the kids are at the lake. Here’s a picture of Ben, too. isn’t he looking good?
A reader asked what I do to make the hydrangeas so big. They are planted on the east side of the building and never get extended periods of hot sun and each fall I cut them down to about 6″ high. These are Annabelle hydrangeas from my neighbor Emma and they have been growing on her farm for over 100 years. They’ve been growing on this farm for 35 years. I don’t do anything to them.
Finally remembered to take this picture of the random squares quilt on the king size bed.
Today is my 68th birthday. Aidan drew me this picture of an ice cream cone and my friends gave me these hostas. Tonite I’ll enjoy a pizza with my family.
