What’s up – 6.26.19

How can it already be almost the end of June. Gosh, summer is going by too fast. After a few rainy overcast dreary days we are having a couple of days that have been wonderful. All of this is going to change starting tomorrow. The weather forecast is for high humidity and 90 plus degrees. Yikes! This will give me some time to quilt since it will be way too hot to be working in the garden.

 

rows
Bumble Bee – blocks are sewn together into rows. I like the look of the quilt so I am not sure if I will add a border or not. I guess I will wait until I have the rows sewn together to decide.

blocks
Habitat #1 – so instead of making the blocks like I mentioned here I decided to use hourglass blocks as the alternate block. Easy peasy with just two colors. Sounded good until…. I figured out that I would have to put the blocks on point. That also means that I will have to sew them together in diagonal seams. What was I thinking.

The peonies are all done flowering and there isn’t anything blooming right now. Many of the daylilies are showing flower stalks so maybe in a week or so we will have some blooms. Here is a photo of my back yard shade garden. There are amethyste astilbles in the back with a variety of hostas in front of them.
