Blocks, Flowers & Even More Giveaways
The orange and blue fabrics have been removed and new blocks were sewn from the remaining parts. So far I have 36 little blocks that measure 6 1/2" unfinished. So I will end up with two smaller quilts that I like instead of one bigger quilt that wasn't speaking kindly to me. I'm still happy that I did the mystery as it gave me a chance to use those rulers that Bonnie recommended.
Here are a few of the remaining flowers outside. It's been dry this week and they are crying for water. The flowers are black eyed Susans, clematis, an obedient plant, and cat plants. What? Oh, I threw those in to see if you were paying attention. I found the wooden cat plants at a garage sale not too long ago. Aren't they just the cutest?
And I keep finding giveaways in blogland. Here's the latest:
At Molly's Place you can win a box of fabric scraps.
Catherine from Willow Valley Store is celebrating 10,000 visitors. She is giving away patterns.
