A New Project

My sister who was just here from California has a granddaughter who will be a year old in October. I’ve been thinking about the quilt I will make her ever since she was born. My goal is always to have it done by their first birthday. I know the nursery is black, white and pink, but I wanted to pull in some other colors. I picked up this floral fabric on my visit to the Manassas quilt shops. I haven't decided definitely how I want to set the churn dash blocks or use the floral fabric. I hope to make some more blocks this weekend. The calendar is pretty free, but you know how that goes. One thing leads to another and the weekend is over before you know it! We’ve had a lot of rain and the garden needs some serious weeding. Hope to do some of that, too. Here are just a few photos I've taken over the past week of flowers in my garden.

Have a good one!


  1. Oh, rhododendrens, peonies! I am so jealous. Thanks for sharing and happy piecing. You'll get it done in time!

  2. Oh how I miss my peony bed - thanks for the beautiful garden photos. Looking forward to seeing your churn dash project grow.
